“Hey barryp, down here the snakes and scorpions call those wiggling toes a moving, but justifiable, target... Brum”

It looks like snakes are everywhere. I see them a lot (relatively speaking) during 3 season. But I’ve never had a physical encounter with a snake. My hiking buddies have, but then again, they wear boots <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />.

I have not had the fortune of seeing a live scorpion. When I camp in the deserts of UT, I check my sandal before putting it on just in case a scorpion wanted to climb on top of it and sleep. Oh well. None sighted yet <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />. Only my booted companions have claimed encounters of scorpions, when they shake out their celebrated footwear <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" />!
