And the story was very similar. We were in the middle of the woods. I stopped in my tracks when I heard the buzzing sound of the rattle. I don't think Hammer believed it could be possible, given our location, but we eventually saw the snake partially covered by leaves. Yikes. Glad you were paying attention!

Haha yeah wilderness traverse course testing many years ago. It wasn’t until we were close to it Bash that i could hear it so that’s why my response to Emma when i heard it was “Its close”

Big Jon:
the moral of the tale is KEEP RUNNING - the snake can't strike quickly enough to get you if you're running...

My “running” would be considered a jog for most people though and that might not be fast enough

People are always worried about the snakes in Australia and yet all I hear coming out of North America are tales of rattlers...
