I was reading one of the comments to a recent post HHH's Lunchtime GotD - No It's Under THAT Rockthat I had written in regards to looking for geocaches and the possibility of getting bitten by a snake here in NC. I thought my point was fairly visual until I read this comment from "Andy".
I attempted a cache in the middle Zambia Africa and had to go through tall grass (taller than me) for 170m in deep snake country. When I got to GZ it turned out to be a few piles of rocks with many holes. I had a poking stick in one hand and a machete in the other.
I abandoned my quest when I found the skull of a python that was about a foot long - whatever killed that I was not interested in meeting!!
I will never look at a snake here the same way... Thanks Andy for using better judgement and not continuing for that smiley...
