|skiman26||What was your method of keeping them out of the tent. I am looking for ideas.|

|ISDTBower||Rattlers were around the slabs in the Springs before 2000. Wife got chased out of a SidBuilt with her pants down! Brother picked up a stick while in his beach chair...It wiggled! After that we did all we could to keep them out of the tent etc. Probably not eco friendly......sprays but effective.|

|devil's slide||i dont think rattlers are expanding their range. Ive seen rattlers in the Sierras my entire life. Some days you are just luckier or not as to whether you have an encounter.|

|peesalot||It was on the rock pile right across from Mark & Maria's cabin, bunch of kids playing, thankfully one of em spotted it before anything happened. I much prefer bears sniffing around than the snakes anytime.|

|devil's slide||Toyota Rubithon last year. Rockpile across the trail from the helipad in the Springs. A bunch of kids doing an RC Crawler course. Definitely heard rattles coming from there. No Wraiths were bitten.|

My crew went thru last week, most on 37+ "

Then 2 years ago, we ran into a huge fatty on the slabs...and I know Edwin had one got under an airmattress or something on the RTF Property.
So 1979 to 2004...nothing. 2004 to 2019, personally saw 2 and heard of 2 more.

Here's some more good thoughts headed out....
I've never seen an honest politician.....
Um wait No strike that.
I've never seen a tornado when I was in tornado alley back when, don't mean they were not there.
Keep yer eyes open , mouth shut (=stereo off) walk lightly, and who knows what'll show up

I hope she recovers quickly. I have never seen a rattler up there.
I was at Barney Riley with flip flops on and almost stepped on one. Not very big snake, maybe 10 inches. It was near a spring we went to explore.

|jemarshall||Ya, poor kid is a trooper. From the info I got it took an hour from buck back to loon, and then almost 2 hours to UCD. Was still in the hospital yesterday. I'm just getting up for nights and haven't looked for updates yet. Every time they give her another shot of anti venom, its another 24 hours before they can decide to release her or give her another shot. From what I got, itll be 6 ish months of no to little weight bearing on that leg. Snake never even rattled, hit her in the foot from under a rock as she was walking past it.|

|Wilson||I ran in to Richardson Lake last Friday. Still good drifts and mostly snow at that point. I saw on FB that a group of jk’s did make it all of the way through on Sunday. They reported 12 hrs to get from the bridge at buck to Tahoma|
