A few years back, Hell and I were in the Laramie Peak unit of the Medicine Bow NF about to head up a fire road to the Black Mountain lookout. There was a group of ATV'ers looking pretty excited about something at the start of the road. Jeff wanted to get going so he wasn't eating dust and headed right up. I watched as a good sized rattler reached out and touched his lower leg. Jeff never felt a thing. I'm betting that poor rattler broke tooth on that hit.
Hellsickle even Jefficates rattllers...
...For those that are not in the know- a virgin trip with Hellsickle will educate you to what you are capable of, but his first is Jeff, so we call it a Jeffication(ecucation by dirtbike)...Newbs, rattler's included, beware!!!
