I left my backpack at camp while I walked down to a nearby creek for a quick rinse. My pack was left open and apparently a rattlesnake found it homey and slithered on in. My friend had seen it go in and told me. I tapped it gently with my foot hoping to disturb it. Nothing. After fifteen minutes or so I decided to do the ol' dump and run. I dumped everything out from my pack and ran like the wind. The snake tried to go back into my pack that I had tossed aside. We threw rocks until he got annoyed and left.

What the heck were you carrying that made a rattler so interested in getting in that pack? Mice :D

I usually run towards dinner, not away from.... Remember, them snakes are a tasty treat! Next time, if dinner comes crawling up to you, "boink" it on the head and enjoy later at camp! :eating:
