Ok Saturday I was clearing some marsh land and I stepped on a snake, well the snake did not like being stepped on so it bit me. Good for me it was a very very mild bite, hardly any venom at all( copper head by the way), But man did I feel bad the next day. So flash froward to today. Feeling good get to my first lawn I am running the ZTR next to a wooden fence. All of a sudden this black round soft thing lands on my leg after hitting the fence. I ran over one of the kids toy snakes, but this thing was one of them heavy real looking ones.. Scared the living crap out of me.. If you have never seen a 250 pound man leap from a ztr mower in under a second you missed a good show!
