    Default Stay on the wide trails.

    Out for a trail run today, it had been a while so I was trying to hit some older narrower trails that happen to be more fun. Up until I ran into this guy.



    The dog managed to jump over him twice without getting bit. But I didnít want to test my luck. We gave him the rest of the trail and went back the way we came.

    Looks like you locked it up when you saw him.

    Wonder how many other folks would not have seen him?
    If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, give it Narcan.

    surely there was a stick near by big enough to beat that serpent to death.

    Can you promise me that the 6 yr old kid running in front of his mom 15 minutes later won't get bit?

    Even if the snake was killed, nobody could make that promise. If you kill every snake you can find, you still need to watch where you step.

    The bigger they are, the more likely it is that they are very good at avoiding rednecks.
