Maybe that's why I'm always the only one in my row of cubes...you may be on to something.

Actually, most of my friends know that they're in for an adventure if they join me. One adventure and they think twice before saying yes again. I'm like the energizer bunny when the adrenaline kicks in.

One surprise I had was when I was camping in Northern Minnesota in the Boundary waters when I was about 17. Don't know how funny it will be if I tell it but when looking back I thought it was hilarious. Long story short. We forgot to hang up our food in a tree for the night. A couple of my friends heard some loud noises that freaked them out a bit. Thinking it was a bear they scrambled for the nearest tree to climb screaming as they went. Because It was pitch black that night neither of them could really see what was making the noises. One of my friends ran square into a low hanging limb and knock himself cold. I grabbed a flashlight on my way out of my tent after being woke up by the screaming (I was a little freaked out myself being woke up from a dead sleep like that) and saw what made the noise. I saw a Raccoon high tailing it away from our food bag.

Been a hectic couple of months, forgot about this till last night.

I was coming back from Missoula on I90 when I saw a shadow in the road, at first I thought it was deer but it was too low, then I figured it was dog but it still didn't look right. Turned out to be a mountain lion, it just eased over to the side and stared at me as I flew by.
That was the third live one I've seen in almost 20 years on the road, really impressive but it sure makes you think twice before pulling off the side of the road to take a leak.

Wow, Hon. All I ever get to see are tracks, poo and, that one time, a cougar furball.

we were out coon huntin one night and stumbled upon a wild hog. and yes. the only rifle we carry coon huntin is a single shot .22 the biggest guy with us takes off runnin the other way. and leaves us to deal with this hog. once we got close enough we realized it was a 3 legged hog. we assumed one had been takin by a gator or somethin. the dogs are goin crazy jumpin in and nippin at the hog. so as 2 of us go in to grab the dogs so they dont accidently get shot. the hog starts to charge. luckily the guy with the gun was a good shot and put the first one right between his eyes. hog stumbled we ran with the dogs my buddy reloads and hits hog again. it stops then one more time it dies. it was horribly frightning

Wow, was searching for one of our Volkswagen threads and this popped up.

Here's a fish story.
I was out fishing San Diego bay with my folks and caught a nice size shark, cut the line and stuck it in the bag with the rest of our fish till we got home about 9 hours later. Gutted, cleaned, skinned and beheaded it, then was dumb enough to stick my hand in it's mouth to retrieve my hook. Did you know that a shark can still instinctively clamp it's jaws shut long after it's dead? I didn't, I shredded a couple fingers trying to yank my hand out.
Shark steaks were especially satisfying that night.

I was working a Job in Missouri that was set back pretty far in the maintains next to the river. When they bought the land for the plant they had to give most of it away to make a nature preserve and let me tell you now..IT HAD TONS of wild life. The whole area had tons of deer and every morning on the way to work you had to dodge them.

One morning I headed out and got about halfway there when they started jumping across the road in front of me. I could either slam on my breaks and crash or possibly hit a deer. I decided to just take my chance and see who I hit. As I got up to them the last one decided to take her chance and jump across. She chickened out right before she hit my door and started running along side me. I'm driving along side this deer hauling ass beside me and could see the snot in its nose. I thought to my self "Man I wonder what it would do if I slammed on my horn". I laid on that horn and I'll be damned if that deer didn't fall over and start convulsing in the middle of the road. I turned a corner right after and couldn't see it any longer so I didn't think much of it.

I pulled into the parking lot and the guy who was behind me pulled up beside me as I was getting out and asked how bad was the damage? I told him I didn't hit a deer but I scared one. He told me he was not too far behind me and when he went past it she was dead in the middle of the road. I scared a deer to death....

That same job someone hit a buck on the way to work and he thought it would be funny to place it in managements blue rooms. He set it up to make it look like it was taking a dump reading a news paper. Scared the hell out of the guy who found it. They had to tape up the blue room and seal it up and ship it out.

ROFL...

I had a deer do that to me coming up out of Oregon once, ran strait toward the truck and I thought for sure I was going to hit it but at the last second it turned and run right beside me for a couple hundred yards. Those damn things can run fast.

I also had an eagle swoop up out of field once and turn right in front of my windshield. I mean literally inches from the glass and fly there for a few seconds. It was amazing.
