General Discussion / Re: every once in awhile, you get a good hand
« Last post by madmaxine on September 16, 2020, 09:30:31 AM »
Ok well,  I'll comment on this post because it's close to home and I miss my brother Kracs.  Danny, Sam, and I are original Kracs.  Sam went out of his way to meet us on the first camp.  Danny showed up with a dually truck (still runs a dually) and the only thing in his truck bed was his backpack.  It filled it.  The morning after we hiked into our next camp.  Danny shouldered an ENORMOUS pack and left us behind in the sugar sand to try and keep up.  We had to yell at him to bear left once, as he bulldogged his way towards his goal.  FYI,  sugar sand has to be experienced to appreciate it's difficulty. 
Danny (and wife) still compete (quite successfully) in martial arts.
Sam does everything he can to spend some woods time with us.  It is much appreciated.  Sam's one of a kind. lol.
I'm doing pretty good.  A LOT better than I thought I would be a year or two ago.
I think it's been more than a decade now we've been a tribe.
Life long friendships are few and far between for me.  I'm thankful that I have that with the Kracs.
I'll try and get Hushnel (Also an original Krac) to post a pic of our motley crew on the first camp.

ps. Thanks wolfman.  I'm taking break from keto for awhile.  Next go around goal is 185 lbs.

Those are nice.  Especially that big one.  He looks like an excellent symmetrical 10 point.  Very cool.  Looking forward to the updates!

Nice!  It's good to be able to get together with old friends especially given all the crap going on in the world today.

Would have Dave, but it was pretty spontaneous.  Had no advance notice that it was going to happen.

Yep a black bear. Park Service doesn?t yet know or hasn?t yet released if the bear killed him or if he otherwise died and the bear took advantage. I?d guess the latter is more likely but black bears do occasionally kill humans.

It would be interesting to know if he died of natural causes or the bear got him.  I am assuming it was a black bear in that location so he might have been dead when the bear came by.

This happened near a back country campsite on the North Carolina side of the National park. Hazel Creek runs into Fontana Lake. Ol? Horace had a camp on Hazel Creek.

Two friends and I spent Friday night in backcountry campsite #20 near Elkmont. We didn?t know anything about the bear incident until we made it back into cell service range on Saturday afternoon.
