Nothing worse than riding under a lonely ridge at dusk by yourself and imagining there’s a Mountain Lion behind every boulder. Jon July 18, 2013 Reply 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. Rodomontade July 18, 2013 Reply Hmm. Is this real?

Graduate to wipes. Ibrahim Cetindemir July 23, 2013 Reply 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. Leave a Comment Cancel reply Notify me of followup comments via e-mail. You can also subscribe without commenting.
