Re: How much does it cost?

My most frequented spot for road cruising puts over 200 miles on my car in a typical night -75m out there, 75m back, and the road of choice is 25 miles long (down and back is 50m). In the prime of the season, I go one to three times a month. So gas is usually my biggest expense. As mentioned, camer...

Re: rattle snake venom in eye?

I got venom in my eye a couple of years ago while herping in Texas. I don't recall if it was a WDB or a black tail, but it wasn't a big deal in my case. Nothing more than minor irritation.
