we were out scouting archery hunting spots several years back, up a good ways back in the laurel on top of the mountain..... it was a cool, September morning, cool enough that the bugs were sluggish. Well we were following a deer trail thorugh the laurel, I was in the lead, my brother was behind me, and my brother's buddy was last in line. Never saw that HUGE bald face hornet nest that was knee-high.....by the time me and my brother got past it, the bees were out and stinging his buddy..... I never EVER thought that I could run that fast in thick laurel......but once you get on 'plane' up on top of the laurel, you can really fly!!
