Redback spider under men's basin at Pines 15-Jan-2010 At 2:16:38 AM The Keeper
Chillin on rest days - what better then to grab a brew and watch the laws of the jungle unfold. Best escapes - in Penticton (Skaha next door) - watched a spider wasp hunting (24-7) for spiders (one single species - each wasp is wired on only one kind) - it finds
one in a silk nest just overtop of the door of my motel room. The wasp spends a lot of time trying to get into the nest ( it obviously knows there is prey isnide) but can't (wonder what the spider's thinking?) The wasp is bouncing around outside - cruises around but keeps coming back to the den - in one
brief second of respite the spider darts out along the door sill and sits completely still -
wasp still back at next - then bingo spider pulls off an amazing zippy rap descent to the ground and in a blink of an eye gets under a crack in the bottom of the door sill. Lucky dude! The wasp keeps crusin the wall lookikng for more of same.

So what's the deal with sleepin on the ground outside of a tent with all of the gnarly little things crawlin around and into you sleeping bag? - sounds like a recipe for some
epic encounters or is it that you sleep in shifts and the sleeping partner has the job at keeping things at bay - snakes, spiders, scorpions , whatever. Or you just post some guard stumpies!
