    Beware of calving moose

    Don't shoot the messenger:

    Fish and Game is requesting that people steer clear of the Kincaid STA trails for a few weeks while baby moose are getting their legs under them. They have received at least 4 reports of people getting stomped and badly injured.

    If you don't choose to ride elsewhere (I don't know anywhere in Alaska that you could go to avoid wildlife), it would be a good idea to control your speed, make noise and give mama moose a wide berth. They are apparently very defensive especially when the calves are first born.
    Meanwhile, back at the hive....

    And Alaska State Troopers and Anchorage Police are requesting that people steer clear of Alaska roads for the summer because motorists who are paying attention to traffic instead of texting don't like sharing the roads with cyclists. Authorities have received at least zillion reports of cyclists getting hit and injured.

    If you don't choose to ride elsewhere, it would be a good idea to wear your head on a swivel, get your health insurance in order, and give monster trucks a wide berth. They are apparently very aggressive even when they lack calves.

    In the name of all-might safety, it would probably be wisest if no one left their house ever! And wore a helmet in the house at all times in case of a slip or fall.
