What is it with me and squirrel's???? I seem to have a habit of running over them constantly. It always seems to be in weird situations. Two months ago I ran one over on the expressway. That was the first time I have ever seen a squirrel run across a 5 lane expressway or hit one at 80mph for that matter. Then yesterday I hit one on my mountain bike on the Silver Comet rail-trail. The section I was at has thick woods on both sides and he came full force out of nowhere right under my tires. After the thump, I turned to look back and he was running back into the woods. How many people here have hit squirrel's on their bikes???? Did you crash???? Luckily I didn't falter but it sure gave me a pucker factor of about 10.
