Just got off the phone with Nest. Seems he had a little unwanted excitement today. He was hiking outside of Cannonsville NY when he heard gun shots. The trail dept winding closer to the shots, and then they stopped. He kept walking and all of the sudden he had a bullet whiz over his head. He has a new "part" in his curly hair.
He jumped behind a rock wall, not knowing if he was shot at intentionally or not. After circling around, the realized that a couple of not so bright people were taking target practice at a peice of plywood that the bullets were going straight through. He got into town and called the police (took several tries because he had crossed state line). He just wanted to make sure they were stopped before more hikers came through.
He's also glad he's 5'11" and not 6'!
So, here's the help he wants. Anyone have enough Dynema or Anema rope to make him a bullet proof hammock?? At least he has a sense of humor about it!
He said maybe Headchange4U has some of that kevlar he uses to make stuff sacks.
Needless to say - he's staying in town tonight!
