GIANT RATS!  
To be honest, prehistoric or not, the thought of a bull- sized rodent disgusts me. The following is a picture released in London on January 16, it is said to be a flesh based sculpture based on the fossil found...
This rodent is estimated to have weighed 2000 pounds!
2000 lb rodent!!

While we are on the subject of killer animals, care to watch a video about killer whales killing seals? It was upsetting, but it IS nature and I was very happy for the other two seals!

UPDATE ON SIDEBAR
A quick update on my sidebar:
Under the Yellowstone List I am adding a link to a new live webcam video feed of Old Faithful. This can be relatively useful to those like myself, who visited Yellowstone and managed to skip seeing Old Faithful ( there are many better things to see in Yellowstone). Also, a helpful hint, if it is dark in Wyoming you will not be able to see(they are two hours behind our eastern time).

BACKPACKING TIP OF THE WEEK
-- Carry all the contents of your first aid kit in a gallon size plastic bag. This will reduce the weight of your kit. However, remember to keep contents in separate little baggies to avoid ruining their sterile nature.

Jeeps
Ya that picture is pretty sick looking. Looks kind of like a hippo. But I thought it was cool how your web site you picked was about jeeps, I've had one all my life. Mine right now though is going down hill though so I think I'm going to sell it.

Re: Jeeps

I absolutely *love* your blog, but I have to say every time I go to look at the blog page or read your comments, I glance at the title and get that annoying song from Dora the Explorer stuck in my head. ;)
