    Gnarly. That stick looks weird.
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    I've never heard of a yipes snake. Are they venomous?

    That pic really shows how good their camo can be!

    When we went to AZ I intentionally looked for all these snakes people talk about, even did a few caches that stated how many were around - and found none. When we went to Alabama we did a cache that said the area was infested with gators - looked an hour for the cache, never found it, never saw any gators. And even at home, we went to Greenville once and never saw a moose, went to Auburn a day or two later and saw one right in the city limits.

    That's the most realistic cache container I've ever seen! Pick it up! Pick it up!
    Everyone has the right to be an idiot at times. Just don't abuse the privilege.

    That is not a cache any of us wanted to sign the log on. Moxie and I walked right past it on the paved trail probably within feet or even inches since it was in the middle of the paved trail and we were walking on the paved trail. It was Heidi that almost stepped on it just before she let out a "woah!!" It certainly did blend right in. I am SOOooooo glad none of us stepped on it, especially Moxie. We actually saw another one further down the trail that had met an untimely demise due to some trail/brush work that was going on... it was a bit flat and didn't have a head. A good taxidermy could fix it up just right for a cache

    We saw a gator right in downtown New Orleans... You just weren't looking in the right places

    The only gator I ever saw "out in the wild" was in North Carolina. I was out fishing, walking the shoreline of a small pond. There was a little inlet I needed to get past and I thought I'd step on the log partially submerged there.....until it swamp away. Wasn't a big gator, but unnerving just the same when it was unexpected. Was all of maybe 5 feet long, tail and all.

    Default I seen em....

    During my ten years in Florida I saw plenty. We used to take our boat up and down some very rural rivers and lakes. They were pretty much everywhere. If it held water then chances were good there was at least one gator in it. This included retention ponds.
    Happy Trails!
