I just wanted to be ready for a bear." Obviously it does not take much imagination to why this would be a bad idea. But we teased the poor guy a bit around the breakfast fire.

    Whats your stories!
    sounds like a friend of mine he is so afraid of bears, that he is making a 6 ft long "spear" to take along bowhunting for self defense

    Not too confident with his bow, eh?

I opened my eyes and directly above me was a squirrel standing on my ridgeline with his (yes, I know for sure it was "his"; perverted little bugger) little claws digging into my netting and 'barking' at me! I didn't know if I should be amused or mad, so I decided to tip the scale towards 'amusement'. I slowly reached up a foot, or two, behind the mad squirrel and pinched the ridgeline between my fingers. As I gradually drew the ridgeline down like a stealthy bow hunter, the barking rose in pitch (like he knew what was coming). When I reached the point that I could no longer pull the ridgeline any lower, I let go.

    With a mighty "thwang!" my little furry alarm clock went sailing through the air about 15' or 20'. Landed on the ground, shot me a wicked dirty look, and took off into the wooded lot next to my house.

    I spent the next week laughing everytime I thought about it. At least I've now seen a flying squirrel, well, sort of.
    Jesus dude you're going to make me wake up my neighbors with a story that hilarious
