Things That Go Bump In The Night

Over the years I have been woken up by many things in my backpacking trips. Here is a list of things that deserve a story or two.

  • Skunk
  • Bear
  • People Having Sex
  • Dolphins
  • Racoons
  • Mice
  • Rats
  • Rain
  • Thunder
  • Wind
  • Coon Dogs
  • Birds Chirping
  • Sunrise
  • Air Conditioner Units
I have learned over time how to sleep through noise. When I am sleeping, my mind is able to discern what noises have to be dealt with. People talking will not wake me however, angry or violent voices will. A mouse does not make much noise yet I will wake if one scurries to close to me. A skunk under your tarp can teach you grace under pressure.
