Was it wrong to be paranoid ? i think i ll try again this weekend:unsure:

Scared of a bear?
Take your
Here's the scene, your detecting in the creek bank, you spot a huge 6 oz gold nugget attached to a piece of quartz bearing rock sticking out of the bank, it's going to take several minutes to pry it out.
The bear is very slowly approaching your area, doesn't look menacing but is approaching.
How bad do you want the nugget, will greed step in and you pommel the bear if he approaches, your mind is racing at this point.
As the bear gets closer, you notice it's only a baby cub, maybe an orphan. What are you thinking now?
Out of the corner of your eye you spot movement as your prying the nugget. You almost got the nugget out. Out of the bush stands upright
this huge bear with a salmon in it's mouth.
Are ya gunna run? Hey look a canoe is floating down the creek and it's going to go right by you, sorry no paddle.
You feel a bulge in your jacket pocket, you remember you brought a large can of mace.........

Wanna continue this story?

Good luck with your Scorpion
