    Just keep, like, raping our mother earth, man, then you won't need to fight them.

    But we might have to worry about those asshole ghouls from Fallout.

    They hate it so much they kill you twice for trying it.

    I'm planning on doing a solo wilderness trek later this year - hopefully the Sierra High Route. Solo trekking can be safe, as long as you properly plan and have the right kit.

    I'll have to look at getting a decent, ultra-lightweight fixed-blade knife. Anyone got recommendations?

    .... I'm going to high-tail it out of there because I'm being informed that I'm overstepping my boundaries.
    Running from a mountain lion is generally considered a bad move btw. Standing your ground, making yourself big and throwing rocks are the tips I've seen most.

    True.

    Remember, though, that--being stalk 'n' stealth hunting specialists, (rather than chasers)--cougars will attempt to wait until you've passed by their hiding place, then maybe try and take your back. One reason they do this is obviously the element of surprise. The other is that more-vulnerable young of many prey species often end up a little behind the rest of the herd.

    That said, there are youtube vids aplenty of small prey animals scaring off bigger predators by running directly at them, a tactic which shuts down the predatory instinct usually triggered by running away, and which puts the predator at the disadvantage of not knowing what exactly it may be facing (small animals may, for instance be venomous). Many a small creature, when cornered, has saved its hide this way.

    Full disclosure: I have only rarely seen a cougar, and only ever a fleeting glimpse of its back end...the overwhelming majority of them flee adult humans when they can. Now that developers are putting more and more subdivisions within what's left of their range, pumas are finding it increasingly difficult to avoid humans as once they did.

    I certainly would not want to trek them alone. Especially in any area of them I haven't been to before. Are you planning on doing the whole 195 miles? What is your treking experince? What is you mountaineering experience? What season are you planning on going in?

    The whole 195 miles will depend on me finishing my current contract by September. Taking an average of 10 miles/day it's roughly three weeks to complete, with travelling from the UK at either end it's closer to 4, so I'd be looking at taking a month off work. September's accepted as the best month to trek it - most of the snow has melted and the worst of the mosquitoes should have been and gone. Ideally I'd like to stick another 20 odd miles on the start and do Mt Whitney too.

    I've done a decent amount of trekking in Europe, alpine and sub-alpine. I did about 110 miles through the Alps last August. Mountaineering experience isn't really necessary on the SHR - there are no roped sections and the hardest terrain is a Grade 3 scramble.

    What was your pace when you did the alps?
    September is pretty good time of the year for it. I did Mt Whitney once when it still had snow on it. It made the trek significantly harder. Of course my lack of crampons did not help.

    My friend was shacked up with The Black Widow from America's Most Wanted and FBI: Criminal Pursuit:



    http://articles.redeyechicago.com/20...suh-andrew-suh

    She was asked during an interview after her arrest, why she had been living with him, as he wasn't wealthy or anything of the sort.

    She replied that the sex was great.
    He was fucking impossible for years after that.
