Well, I found out that in North Carolina its not about take the bite (going down) its about getting BIT.
I was out MTBing here on the NC Coast by my house last week and prior to entering my local trails I ran across this monster Canebrake (Timber) Rattlesnake. It scared the S*** out of me. I thought to myself well it might have been a fluke. A local came out and put a cap in it!
Yesterday afternoon While riding on the same trail I was pumping hard down this trail I looked up and there on the trail was a Copperhead. Yes, It scared the S*** out of me. At this point and time I think I might hang my bike up for awhile and do some road riding! There is no interest in riding with Combat Boots on carrying a Gun!
