    If I wanted to hear metal, I'd just stick the camera outside next to the Exhaust pipe and turbo. :laugh:

    Hey Chris you ever see gators or snakes in those swamps or just turtles?

    We don't have gators around here but we have tons of snakes. If a couple of them bit you, there's a 50/50 chance you would not make it back to the truck alive if you were alone. Hence why I don't like to get out of the machine if its during the summer!

    I remember on a job a couple years ago, I flipped over a stump with the bucket and atleast 5 copperheads came flying out:dizzy:
    I really don't like snakes either...

    Found a bunch of Eels too.

    Sounds like you need a pair of snake boots.. :cool2: :laugh: They dont bother me, as long as I got something I can kill them with near by..

    And that turtle.. :eek: Was that thing alive? I had one of them bad boys pop up when I was getting ready to get into a pond with my waders on to rake the moss(thats all we were pulling out, I posted pics of it here) that Dad couldnt reach on the machine, as soon as I pulled my left wader on that huge freakin turtle popped up, and I pulled my waders right back off, bulls#it if I am goin in the water with that thing in there...
