I wasn't there to confirm Rich's critter story, but I heard it in-person and it was a great story.  Too bad he didn't have BB's video camera going at the time.

Sounds like Rich and I have both "left our mark" on this new round of CLAPS caches...both on the North series....

Dhaulagiri and I saw numerous BIG wiggle snake tracks across the path yesterday on our visit to memorial park.  I was pretty freaked out but handled it until I went to sleep last night and had a nightmare that my children and I were being attacked by snakes.  I woke up covered in sweat and ready to look for LPCs until winter comes.  Then I remembered BB talking about a black widow in a LPC - ugh!!!!

I was at ParkerPlus' Garage No 1 (GC3QXM2) and about 3 inches from a agitated banana spider and the dang thing made a noise at me.  I thought it was imagination until I deliberately got close and it made an aggressive posture and the same odd noise.

The internets say that Orb weavers will shake their webs to scare off pesky Bertators.

It seems like every CLAPS adventure comes out with a story!

 

Today, on our way along Spring Gully we decided to stretch out our legs to search for both GC231NN and GC26QNE, when we realized the easiest way between two points was to kayak underneath one of three dark hollows of a bridge to the subdivision. 

 

Now imagine Indiana Jones fright for snakes translated to fear of spiders, and on all corners of the bridge are dozens of wolf spiders.

Just close your eyes & row, right?!

 

Well suddenly there's a shriek echoing in the dark because something jumped in the kayak!

 

It's not a wolf spider...

...it's a shrimp.

:2funny:

That's funny. I buy those same Rubbermaid drinking cups as you have in your picture (I buy them in batches of 10) and have them stationed all over the house because I drink tons of water. Since they have the straw attached to the lid and it goes all the way to the bottom, I call them my "adult sippy cups" because they remind me of those sippy cups for kids.

My Bride and I picked up 4 of these Lonestar ticks over by China, Texas doing ThatdarnDane's caches.

A PnG life for me - no chiggers, ticks or PI in two years and I'm OK with that.

Don't feel lonely, Bert, I found a tick crawling on me shortly before heading to the Original Stash Plaque in Oregon.  Who knew they had ticks up there?

Well try this one on for size.  Spider bite on my leg that I got over 2 weeks ago:  Ain't geocaching fun?

Add another Lonestar tick to the mix. I got this one in Anahuac yesterday. That makes 4 for me this year. The spider bite is healing.
