Nope, I also won't be putting any energy into investigating whether or not we landed on the moon, who killed Kennedy, whether or not the world will end in 2012, the existence of werewolves, vampires, zombies, ghosts or whether or not Obama was born in this country. I already put a lot into that Tooth Fairy investigation and think I came up with pretty ground breaking results.

My vote: illegal grow operation in the area trying to scare people away.

Great now I'm all spooked about doing the LCW loop solo in the spring I've been planning. :shock:

Also if anyone wants to go snipe hunting then let me know, I'm getting a group together.

Be sure to take lots of blurry pictures of the melted-out footprints.

I'm in JB, as long as it's snipe hunting in the LCW, on Friday the 13th, under a moonless night with only a $0.99 flashlight from Walgreens and we can wear cotton.

I could've sworn snipes were only in South America. :wink:

Now, we're talking! =D> We need a paper bag and a stick (from what I recall from my "snipe hunting initiation" experience). 8)
As if none of us have ever come back with a cool, quasi-epic story instead of being victim to tragic rockfall, a fatal stumble, a heart attack, an embolism, a lightning strike, a bear attack, collapsing cornice, some psycho with an axe, a falling tree, carbon monoxide, even falling asleep at the wheel getting to a mountain. If you can't accept the fact that sometimes "s**t happens", then you live with the illusion that your epic genius and profound wilderness intelligence has put you in total and complete control of yourself, your partners, and the mountain. How mystified you'll be when "s**t happens" to you! - FM

No, they wanted to do it in my backyard. I say go for it, my backyard is a giant drainage pond that is full of water from the recent snowstorm.


That's no fun... it's only fun to do it on someone else's private property! :lol:

Hey, I'm pretty sure Big Foot exists. One of my best friends can hardly ever go snowboarding because he wears a size 15 shoe.

Now THAT'S a Big Foot.
