Default I want to go tiger hunting

But I doubt I would ever be able to go tiger hunting with this much class, so I doubt I will be going.

You've got to read it to believe it.

Why did they paint it and ruin the original color and the value? I was all set to send a cashier's check for the car and fly out to pick it up. Mesuggah!

I don't worry about that, because I have an IT guy who will fix things for me.

Before you decide to go tiger hunting, consider this:


The more I do, the less I accomplish.

This computer was acting up from the first day I had it. No complaints to me. I surf because I do a LOT of research for projects, not necessarily wood related. You guys get about 1% of the unrelated stuff I find. Very unlikely I'll post anything on the three alternate energy sources I am working on. Need to design a micarta press, should use metal, but will make it out of wood, because it's more fun working with wood. Repurposing a 3-wheel ATV to an off-road powerchair, bolt together, and a lot of wood. And more.

DRT, I have two books by Peter Hathaway Capstick. He was a professional hunting guide in Africa for several years. One book, Maneaters, deals with various kinds of carnivores and their fondness for two-legged prey. To the predators, humans are just another source of protein. Surprisingly, he states with authority that the crocodile and the hippo are the #1 problems for humans in Africa. The only difference, according to Capstick, is the hippo won't swallow you, just chew you to a fine mush and spit you out. Then the other critters dispose of the remains. Ah, yes, Africa is very efficient at disposing of one's remains.

For as long as I can remember, hippos and crocs have been the commonest cause of wild-animal related deaths in these parts. Doesn't happen that often, but neither species can be confined to a reserve, unlike other dangerous beasts ( humans excepted). Both liver in water, and follow water courses as they wish. Hippos spend all day in the water, and come out in the evening to feed. They are herbivorous and not that ornery, but very territorial, and really hate anything coming between themselves and their slipway back into the water. And they move in astonishing silence in dense vegetation, also at astonishing speed (30 km/hr), for something the size and weight of a compact car. They can also run at surprising speed underwater, and dislike boats nearby if they are rearing babies ( born underwater). About every second or third year, some boat is shredded to matchsticks. There is a village located on a coastal estuary, where the hippos cross the main street after dark, and go foraging in the parks and unprotected gardens. No problems if people stay clear - hippos have lived there for millenia, and have right of way. St Lucia South Africa Information and Warning Signs - St Lucia South Africa
Nile crocodiles are another matter. I once witnesses a croc launch itself out of the water Polaris-style, seize a drinking antelope in one movement, and drag it back underwater in the blink of an eye. Crocs are often seen floating mostly-submerged, but can approach prey completely submerged. Even on land, they are incredibly swift. This was a recent attack:

Interestingly, because hippos are so territorial, they sometimes "rescue" other species from croc attacks:


These latitudes are no place for sissies.
