    Dang it man got to clean my screen again!!

    Good thing you didn't have it in the front seat of your truck ~ he may have broke a window out getting to it.

    When I hiked the Columbine Trail a few weeks back there was a van with a broken window and a cooler pulled halfway through the window. Wasn't like that on my way up.
    Be good!!!

    Yeah, but how much did the bear weigh?



    My husband furnished me with some statistics posted on his cycling website. They're interesting. Would be even more interesting if they're true.

    For every person killed by black bears

    Dogs kill 60

    Bees kill 180

    Lighting kills 350

    This supposedly came from the National Center for Health Statistics
    If not NOW, then WHEN?

    Bear Solution: Hang your hammock 30 feet up and keep your food in your lap.

    I'm glad the bear got a lick in before those guys shot it. I'm not all that keen on chasing bears up trees with dogs and shooting them as they cower in fear.
    If you don't have something nice to say,
    Be witty in your cruelty.

    Wrong! A 600 pound bear was killed by black-powder hunters near Roanoke in 2006.

    That actually happened outside of SNP. The Roanoke paper reported it.
