    Yeah, we were watching from some distance away ... I wouldn't have wanted to be under it. :eek:

    OK ... that reminds me of a quick story. Last August we took Kristi's uncle and aunt hiking Russian Lakes trail to the viewing plaform. Came across a black bear sleeping about 40 feet up a tree just off the trail. I was standing on the trail keeping an eye on our surroundings while the other three took pictures from different vantage points around the tree. The black bear was pretty chill and not showing any signs of agression or coming down out of the tree at all. A guy, his wife, small daughter (about 5 yrs), and their dog come up the trail. When they get about 30 yards away, I hear his side arm clear it's holster (distinctive sound when you've worked around weapons in a close environment like I did in different assignments), he got my full attention until they passed and got on down the trail. The whole time I was thinking "what is this guy's problem, this is no where near a threatening situation that calls for drawing a weapon." I was more concerned about that guy getting nervous with a loaded gun in his hand than I was about the bear."
    :facepalm: Human idiots out in the wild are much more dangerous than the wildlife.

    Depends on where you grab them from.

    I just grabbed that from google images. Looked for the species native to here, copied, clicked "insert image", pasted the image addy, and posted.

    Yeah some people....I'm usually not too jumpy when I'm out. Keeping calm is the most impoartant thing. The only times that I've been truly scared is the night that the elk came into my camp (I was in bear country, thought it was a bear at first) and I was hiking a few years back in a really heavily wooded area and I heard a grunt/snort/growl from something. Never did see what it was but again I was in bear country so my senses were on high alert from that point on. Only time I've ever unholstered my bear spray too.

    Just my boss again. Friday at 4:20 (10 mins before we left the job site) I called him to confirm plans for Monday (earlier in the day he texted everyone was going to be at our northern job site). He told me yes, everyone would be there so I left all my tools I took with me there from our other job site (~1 hr away). Saturday at 6:30 pm he messages everyone on a group text that we are splitting up the crews for Monday, I'm going to the south site, him and the other guys are going to the north site. Right away my labourer texts me saying he left his tool belt at the other job because I told him we would be back there on Monday.
    I messaged the boss saying I wish he had made up his mind Friday when I called him rather then changing the plans again Saturday evening. Told him I left all my tools there because he told me I would be back and that I have nothing but an empty trailer at the other site.

    So Sunday morning at 12:11 am he sends a group text again saying everyone would be back up at the north site

    I want to effing quit, I'm tired of this bouncing around shit
