    freaks come out at night

    a big spider, a demon eyed buck, and one of those little night birds that kept flying at my light, and then landing right in front of me for another round. Damn birds need to know who has the right away. Next time I'm going to clothesline that punk, and then giggle about it over some isolation ale and cinderella Have a good week all.

    CHRIST that's a really big spider. I've been having recurring dreams about spiders like that lately. What's odd is that in each one, I have a can of Raid at the ready and I take them out.

    I got the willies just looking at that picture. I'd probably freak out of my skin if I saw one that close. And the stupid thing is, I'm not really afraid of spiders - not phobic, anyway. Or at least, I didn't used to be...

    Sweet pics, though. Looks like some nice riding.

    damn man, been missing you lately. It's getting to be that time of year, but i've been doing the cyclocross thing. We'll have to get that one last snow ride/camp in yet. I hope I never see a spider that size...ever.

    cheers man

    Sweet shots there migz. Let me know if you can make it down for a Tuesday nighter and I'll make sure to line up something big. It'd be great to see you down in these parts.

    Just how big was that spider?

    Well, watch it when you're riding through those tall grassy fields on the front range then. We backed up to one when we lived in Rock Creek and used to see those monsters hiding all over the yard and house every fall. I even woke up with a spider bite on my arm where the fang marks were at least a 1/4 inch apart. Unfortunately it didn't leave me with any special spidey powers..

    Those things move pretty quick. Unless you're keeping the raid in a quick draw holster you're better off with a large thumping object.

    lol- the spiders don't really give me the willies- now ticks. Ticks give me the willies.

    Will do- I'm starting to work till 8:30pm on tues, but have a wk off in mid Dec., so maybe I'll hook up w/ ya then. If not, I'll find a way to go rollin w/ the redstone brothers some weekend, or holler at me if you come up north.The spider was the size of one of those little microwave pizzas.
