+CWagoner Posted June 5, 2009 Share Posted June 5, 2009 Recently on a trip and caching in Tallahassee I was caching near in a small park in a residential area, the "One Dollar Cache", and was within about 15 feet of the cache when I ran into a Cottonmouth that tried to bite me , missed by a few inches. After recovering from the shock and letting my heartrate drop below about 500 I decided it was time to leave and head back to the hotel room. With all the high water levels around here I can understand the higher likelihood of snakes. If you are attempting this cache BE CAREFUL and take a walking stick! And lots of bug spray! I gotta have a beer after this one!!! That is one of the closest times I have come to being bitten, he was hidden in the ferns and hard to spot, and I was even being careful. But even so, things can happen... Be careful out there. Quote Link to comment
