Good for you!! Whatever it takes to get you over this

For me, knowing my husband will go without me motivates me to keep the phobia in check (since I'd rather be WITH him than WITHOUT him )

I have camped in NC before. My first time, IIRC, was at Cape Fear (1990). We arrived in a honda hatchback stuffed with our crap. It rained all night. It was a tough camp. When I woke up in the morning, the forest was a glowing orange. I've never seen anything like it.

I bet that would have freaked some of our indoor lover friends here out, lol!

Come back to NC and check out the Blue Ridge Mountains one day

My husband just laughs at me!

Well, I live in the city and there are huge repercussions if a weapon is discharged here so my method of snake elimination is frowned upon Now, at the house in the country I shoot them to my hearts content. You should try it some time! If your shot is not so great use some rat shot Good stuff!

kayaking on the Saco River is just that, clean as can be. I love the White Mountains; probably moreso than the Rockies. OTOH, little beats running through sage fields.

When I was little, my mother's parents lived in Big Bear. We'd drive up there twice a year and spend some time. At night in the winter, the air had this scent. I guess it was all the pine trees and chimneys, but it just smelled like ... cold, I guess. I smell it here in Illinois every now and then. I love that smell.
Me too! I was just visiting with my dh in his den, which is pretty funky (we have a huge river stone fire place with river stone flanking two walls), and he was feeding his wood stove. I love that smell.

I would love to! I can't wait for him to be done with school so we have a bit more mobility. I've approaced him about considering NC as a final destination. We're torn, but I have a SIL there.

This reminds me of a time I was camping at Beaver pond. We heard a leak spring. By morning, they had it all patched up lol.

Darlin', Snakes are an IMPortant part of Nature. You shouldn't be KILLing them.

They are More Scared of You...

When You show FEar they Sense it...

I've Never been Harmed by a Snake, but i have held Many Snakes.


Most Snakes aren't UNDERStood. They don't wish to HARM YOU.
