    Years ago I was riding behind my wife on the Road Apple Rally course in Farmington, NM, but not during a race. She rides over a foot long snake and the front tire flings it up on her ankle. She starts screaming and peddling faster and the snake keeps winding up her leg. Finally she jumps off the bike and the snake drops off. Not a poisonous snake, so it was funny. At least to me.

    How can you be in two places at once when you're not anywhere at all?

    Grade-A hilarity.

    Was at Galbraith a couple weekends ago, went 10 steps off the trail to take a leak and in midstream realized that there were two king(?) snakes crawling between my legs headed toward the splashing. One was about 18" long, and the other was a bigun, about 3'+. I adjusted my stream accordingly to miss them (you cant stop midstream), finished up, did the jiggle-hop before buttoning up and went on about my ride.

    Never saw why people hate snakes so much. Im not friendly with them, but there is quite a ways between my mild dislike for them and my unadulterated scorched earth hatred for spiders. One of the best things about winter is not having to deal with insects/arachnids.
