    Not really sure if this goes here, but I thought it was quite an interesting story. Was prodding around CNN today, and found this story about a man and his wife who have been living in virtual isolation for more than 30 years in Alaska. They survive by trapping, fishing, and hunting their own food. They rotate from 3 individual cabins to make sure the game isn't depleted in any one spot. The video is quite fascinating :)

    Glad to see there are some folks out there who dont need wal-mart or 7-11. Ouch that had to hurt like hell. Hope you killed him. Never liked reptiles or serpants.

    He's looking at his ancestors, and my hand was in such a mess I didn't have the time to make him ready for the pit. All I wanted was to get My hook out of him or her. BTW they don't stich these types of wounds. I'm over loaded on antibiotics and still worried about infection because it was a gator with bad breath, any how I'll be back in the swamps. God Bless,;)Wills
