Waived home inspection. Ouch!

It's like what Indy said, you don't hear any man made sounds. One of the great things about going off road, the quiet.

Oh and a bird watcher set up camp in the middle of the path and was trying to take pictures. Not sure why he had to stop in the middle of the path and not the side.

He was trying to get a better shot angle, gotta do what you gotta do. Could have been a rare bird.

He was still asking for his expensive lens to get bounced of the concrete when someone plows into him. Depending on the bird, it may be worth it.

More bear news: we got a text from our host that there was a bear in front of the house last night, and to be careful.

Some nice bear signage posted today:

The athleticism and fearlessness is fun to watch, but he's not going to have a long career hurtling his (relatively) slight frame through the air and at the mercy of much larger defenders.

Does he ever get tired? You're right, though. Smaller players tend to get hammered when they run amok.
