    How did Mountain Lions not make the cut? Nothing worse than riding under a lonely ridge at dusk by yourself and imagining there’s a Mountain Lion behind every boulder.

      Serious. Bears are easy. Make noise, play dead, get big, slowly back away, hang food, ect. Cats… now cats will f your s up for no reason at all.

    Hmm. Is this real? I’m surprised some variation of “people” isn’t on the list. The idea of guns on trails comes up often enough I’d expect a significant number of people are actually worried about getting raped/mugged/kidnapped by other humans.

    Crashing and getting seriously f**d up so that the rest of your life is a total mess and can’t afford to pay my bills nor support my family. How can that not be number one?
