    P/O Squirrell on Lock 4!

    Have you ever heard that indecision will kill you? Well there is a squirrel out at Lock 4 that is a believer. I was out there Friday afternoon, riding the trails and a squirrel started running back and forth across the trail not knowing where to hide from me....well at the last moment he decided to try one more time to cross in from of me. Too bad for him that I was going down hill and was traveling with some speed. I got him....by his tail. Have you ever seen a pi??ed off squirrel? He was not happy at all about having his tail run over. The sounds he made were a little weird, but I think he was saying what the ?@% was that? Anyway, I think that squirrel now knows about indecision and all that! But riders beware, he may now be stalking you with all his squirrel buds...

    Oh yes I am fairly sure that there are several squirrels that would knaw my wheels off if I gave them the chance.

    You ever heard of the term "Squirrely"

    That action of the little beast you described, is the definition.

    I could have sworn one of those squirrels was chasing me on my ride late Friday.....must of thought I was you. I have noticed there are a few kamikazi squirrels out there with a death wish but they have managed to make it between my front and rear tires on a couple of occasions.

    Someone hit a cat at Lock 4 two years ago. Tire track right across his mid section.

    …but on Voyage 34, he finally met himself coming down an up-staircase, and the encounter was crushing (Porcupine Tree).

    I've gotten pretty close to hitting deer a couple of times. That would teach me to slow down.
