    I was just wondering what everyone thinks is the strangest thing they have seen while trail riding? I think for me it would have to be some weird hobo camps or seeing two kids who were fighting one had his finger stuck in the other guys cheek and the other guy had this guy in some other bizzaare hold that involved pulling on skin somehow... and neither of them would move, they were just sitting still angrily stretching at each other

    Strangest and scariest thing I saw was at Wampatuk State Park about 7 to 8 years ago....a buddy and me were about to do a little mountain biking when we saw this guy wearing nothing but a newspaper wrapped around his waist, carrying a walking stick. The moment the guy saw us, he jumped into a ditch and tried to hide from us, though not very well. About an hour or two later, my buddy and I started to notice a lot of helicopter activity above the park and when we tried to leave the park, a lot of police posted at the entrances and exits. Turns out our "naked guy", as we had referred to him during the ride, was a convicted child molestor that had somehow been released from jail. My understanding was the release was do to a clarical error in the court. Not sure about that though. The park ranger had reported the man's vehicle in the parking lot and thats what started the man hunt by the State Police. Anyway, they caught the guy almost 24 hours later. I am happy to say that we warned several families, including one with 2 small children; to leave the park before we even knew what was going on. That is the strangest thing I have seen on a trail ride, and I can't imagine anything topping it.

    Seeing a wallaroo in Australia during a morning bush ride was pretty cool. They're just a small kangaroo. Other than that, I've come around a corner and gotten within about 15 feet of a coyote. He just looked at me, lifted his leg to mark the territory, and walked away into the brush. It was very surreal.

    You are the Coyote the coyote was you? An unusually large amount of homeless people walking down the street. They call them drag rats down here. They had such a bad smell you almost expected to see stink lines coming off of em like Pigpen.

    Snakes and a lot of them. I was biking behind a construction zone and I guess the sound of the guys working set them off because the moving I counted five in the path I was on. I don't know if any of them were poisonous but I stopped and watched my path to make sure I wasn't going to run any of them over.

    Scariest was the meth addict chic taking ahhhh dictation I guess it could be described as from her supplier.

    Best was the girls college volleyball team skinny dipping while out on a team building camp out.
