I was on a local bike path with my young nephews when we encountered a garter snake. They were demanding they keep it. But I was insisting we let it go. I won in the end. It seemed as though it just fed on a heavy meal, or was injured. Couldn't tell. But the snake wasn't feeling well regardless.
Oh, btw, my Blog about primitive skills is back up. I'll be adding more content as I get time. Feel free to check it out and see how bad it sucks: www.archaicarcher.com
