On a side note, I really hope Jason posts the picture of that pissed-off bull snake striking my tire.

Chris was leading the pack with me and then the rest behind him. He drove over a slight rise in the road and yelled over the radio that he thought he had just hit a rattler. We went to investigate, and it turned out to be a very lucky yet very pissed-off bull snake. After a few close-ups (via zoom lens) the snake decided to start striking at anything within striking distance. We decided to leave and head back to another campsite a few miles back. As Chris drove by, the bull snake let the Ex-Mod know he was not afraid of it and struck at the XZL.

We later drove by again and found some toothless mouthbreathers driving Polaris side-by-side ATV's. They had stopped and killed the snake with rocks.
