    Just a bug that burrows into your skin..... the SE USA is about as bad but not quite as your country... like if you took away crocs, box jelly fish and 3 species of poisonous snakes and spiders we’d be in a dead heat....

    Imagine a small tick that eats a hole in your skin then leaves a baby tick under your skin to feed on you. They itch worse than I can describe.

    And, yea, we don't need crocs. My hometown is already overrun with alligators. Those are generally mellow as long as you don't mess with them.

    Water moccasins and copperheads are the only real danger.

    Box jelly fish are so 1980... the Irukandji jelly fish are the scary ones(even though they are actually a species of box jellyfish)...

    Could be worse. I bought my current house for $280 about 3 years ago. Now it’s worth $500 (ya our market went wack)

    That would have been great for me if I didn’t now have to give most of that profit to a woman who thinks i’m devilspawn....

    The worst we got were occasional Portuguese Man of War colonies blown onto beaches. Those are relatively rare. But I still saw a few tourists learn hard lessons about those even dead and desiccated laying on the beach

    Ive had my cabin near Wabeno for over 12yrs now. I can tell you that its pretty tough to find a bear, harder to spot a wolf. Last year was a good year for me, saw 12 bears, mostly cubs, played chicken with one. Most years im lucky to see 2-3, and thats with me trying to find them. Only saw one wolf so far, snowmobiling late at night and it was huge !! Def creeped me out that night, was really close to the town i was riding thru.

    Id be more afraid of the locals !!

    I'll buy a couple.

    That's awesome man! It's good to be a GS ungodly. That was my favorite part of the job to, taking rookies in and helping them learn through the season.

    My buddy is going through something similar but has kids and what she's asking for now would leave him with less than a thousand dollars a month. That's in a town where rent on a studio apartment that isn't next to a meth dealer runs 850 a month. The one next to the dealer goes for 875... for the convenience.

    I hears ya!

    Either it's gotta be fast, or extremely challenging gnarl, or both. It's the only way to keep my ADD addled head on my game. Riding on autopilot leads to mind wandering inattention, and inevitable dirt sammich

    What are the law about putting a kid on the back of a bike? If they can hold on on their own, is it ok?
