    Treatment of Snakebit Uncertain

    The treatment of snakebite has always been an argument. When I was teaching EMTs and paramedics, from the four available textbooks, you'd generally find at least three different standards for...

    Not an Urban Legend

    While I agree with our overall point, this does not qualify as an urban legend. Rather, this is a change in the accepted medical advice, as happens often in the medical field.

    I was teaching EMTs...

    A rare find

    It's rare to find sensible posts on such an insensible topic as this, Minnesota Smith; so yours are appreciated. Fully realized, the plan is not to acquire wild places for people to enjoy, but to use...

    Scorpions

    I believe that there is only one type of scorpion in the United States that is deadly to humans - the Arizona scorpion. The Arizona scorpion is dark in color, and is found in states other than...

    Some flux is natural

    Species come and species go, that is the natural order of things. When we try to change nature through artificial regulation, we risk doing more harm than good.

    Rattlers

    I lived, for a time, in the canyons outside of Corona, California. Almost any warm day that I wanted to hike up in the canyons, I'd see dozens of rattlers. They were all over the place. I had at...

    Push Mower

    When I moved to Millinocket, I wanted a rotor blade mower, the kind without a motor. I found one at Sears and bought it new, only to find that it didn't work very well at all, but simply flattened...

    LNT or religious bias?

    I'm not sure how we went from Bibles in shelters to Bush's reelection. I didn't vote for Bush, but neither did I vote for Kerry. Back on topic, my post was in response to those here who are...

    Quiet

    I haven't been quiet, overall; I've been posting in several of the other areas on Whiteblaze, but I haven't posted recently in the 2005 area. I'm not sure why, but I guess it's because I've been busy...

    It increases again when you get into Maine,...

    It increases again when you get into Maine, particularly northern Maine. It seems that nearly every other vehicle in Millinocket is a pickup truck.

    What other topics are disallowed?

    So our freedom of speech does not apply to the AT. What other topics are disallowed on the trail? And who gets to decide? Why?

    When the people who are arguing against Bibles and other Christian...

    Nonconformists

    There seems to be a bit too little tolerance for nonconformance around here. Before long, backpacks will have to come in approved colors and trail names will be issued from a central registry. I've...

    Olympus C-720

    John Brown

    I don't believe that he was thought to be insane at the time. Ferocious, yes. Passionate, certainly. But the spin that he was an insane, homicidal maniac came later.

    Strange subject to argue about

    I find it strange to find such strong feelings about an individual's decision to ford the river or take the ferry. We make decisions every day, some of them more dificult or dangerous than others....

    Discussing religion

    I think that some people are bothered by the very fact that anyone is discussing religion. Convinced that freedom of speech should not apply to Christians, they feel compelled to participate.

    No Maps in 100 Mile Wilderness

    I haven't (yet) completed a thru-hike of the AT, but I've done the 100-Mile Wilderness in Maine without a map and found that to be no problem whatsoever.

    That said, I would probably carry maps on...
