Thanks, PK.....it's always fun to meet the newcomers to the area, as I myself once was.

Jane (Chilegal) was a great help when I arrived.....and so much fun to meet, as was Song....so anything I can do to help another, so much the better!

Default Cathy and The Girls

It looks like the center of New Mexico is going to get in the 60s or warmer on Sunday i can imagine what kind of Warm weather Alamogordo is going to have probably in the 80s. And Cloudcroft will probably be in the 60s. p.s. remember Girls if you get in Trouble and your in the center of N.M. ask for the Pintada Kid. And dont go hiking Alone Take A Friend. el pintada kid

Have any of you experience snakes in the Chama area? While walking through the woods lasts October, I did see a dead rattler on the walking trail in one of the Reserves we were walking.

Ill be the first to tell you that you can wear all the bells and whistles you want, but it wont do a dang thing to keep the snakes away because THEY DONT HAVE EARS! The BEST thing you can do while hiking in rattlesnake country (ie ALL of NM) is to wear thick leather boots that will be hard to bite through, snake chaps or gaitors, and dont step on or over rocks w/o looking first. Keep your hands and feet where you can see them and just think smart. Snakes are NOT evil nor out to get you. Learn about them first before you all judge them.
Disagree with you Steve. From experience, they have some type of hearing. You can stand quietly on the porch at night and then call out and have heard them rattle in response. No one said they were evil, but when you live 3 hours from the nearest treatment center you best be careful. Then if you happen to be out in a pasture good luck making it out of the dead cell area. Use your brains!

My husband has been wondering about that, for us to get to a treatment center could take a good hour or so. I do realize that they are (rattlers) not aggressive but if you acccidently step on one what are the odds of living through a bite when you have to climb off a large hill, get to the house, find your keys and drive 45 minutes to the local hospital. Do people actually die from rattlers?

Well, call the Guinness Book of World Records because youve found the first snake in the world that has eardrums!

The fact that they rattled is a pure coincidence if anything. Snakes DO NOT HEAR, but they can pick up vibrations through their jaws if their heads are resting on the ground. Even then they wont rattle at anything unless they perceive it as a threat.

Dont tell me to "use my brains", Im one of the few on this thread that is thinking logically. You just basically told me (and believe) that snakes rattle back when spoken to.

Yes, people do die from rattler bites, but compared to the number of people who are bit (8,000+ a year), the fatality rate came out to something like 1/2 of 1%.

Default Rattlesnake Bite Tip

A Old Friend of mine told me his son got bit by a Rattler years ago and that his sons Body got swollen and twice as big but he didnt die. His son later on was elected State Senator in Albuquerque. Some people especially the ones that have gotten bit a number of times can get bit and all they do is Throw Up and they are better again. el pintada kid
