Snakes are part of nature, and if I wasn’t tromping around, they’d slither through holes in the fence on one side, crawl across my camp and go out the fence on the other. The biggest snakes are water snakes. They can bite pretty good but they aren’t poisonous. Poisonous snakes don’t bite as hard. Snakes are part of nature.
I’d see squirrels, armadillos, raccoons, deer and nutria and near the river I’d see alligators but I didn’t go over there much. My plastic fence came to be kind of camouflaged by dirt and spanish moss, and I’d stay inside of it. Pigs are part of nature, but I wanted pigs outside. Me in camp.
I brought food back there sometimes and had a fine time, luke-warm hamburger right out of the bag, and then throw the bag over the fence. Plates and forks are administration. I didn’t show anybody where my camp was. You show somebody where your camp is and they start bedding down there sometimes, then your stuff starts moving around and you can’t ever find it. I was married once, when I came back from overseas.
I’d lay in my hammock and think about what would happen if I got myself a fishing rod and a boat, and caught fish and ate them. I also thought about what would happen if I found a rifle somewhere and could shoot a deer. I’d have to get a cooler to keep all that deer meat, ice. Ice is administration though.
