    How did Mountain Lions not make the cut? Nothing worse than riding under a lonely ridge at dusk by yourself and imagining there’s a Mountain Lion behind every boulder.

      Serious. Bears are easy. Make noise, play dead, get big, slowly back away, hang food, ect. Cats… now cats will f your s up for no reason at all.

    Hmm. Is this real? I’m surprised some variation of “people” isn’t on the list. The idea of guns on trails comes up often enough I’d expect a significant number of people are actually worried about getting raped/mugged/kidnapped by other humans.

    It’s venomous snakes and I second the vote for getting the runs in the backcountry and not having TP

    As a photographer my biggest fear is breaking any of my camera equipment. Or running out of toilet paper. Both had happened to me, not fun man, not fun.
