Re: [RC] Mountain Lions - Truman Prevatt

I remember my scuba instructor commented on why you carried a knife when you dove. He said you carried a knife for when you confronted a shark. I said there is no way a diver is going to take on a shark with a diving knife. He said "oh, no you don't go after the shark, you stab your buddy and swim like hell."

>From time to time, I've seen a FL panther cross trail on my early morning ride. I assume it is the same one since they control a large territory. Once, he/she paused and looked at me and then went on into the woods. It was a feeling of wonder to see such a magnificent animal.

Now you want to talk about something, lets talk about crossing streams or going into lakes for a drink in "gator country." ;-)
