While staying at a friend's cabin, R and his friends noticed a venomous water moccasin snake at the edge of a pond. Despite having a brand new throwing knife, R used a pellet gun to shoot the snake. The snake is seen draped over some antlers.

A recent vacation to the Smoky Mountains resulted in a side trip to Kentucky, where the highest point was conquered on a 3 mile walk. The actual highpoint was decidedly unpicturesque, but the walk to it was pleasant. A red spotted newt was discovered, along with 3 dead moles. Then W managed to leave his backpack at the trailhead, a fact not discovered until they had driven 100 miles away. After a short discussion, the family decided to make the long return trip to get the backpack, which was still there over 5 hours after W had left it.
