Man Rams Deer Decoy with Cavalier

The Fish and Fur set up a fake deer in a field to try to catch poachers shooting deer illegally at night. This guy went a step further than most though. He drove across a field and rammed the fake deer with his car at night, sending it flying 30 feet through the air. Oh, and he was stoned at the time. And had his girlfriend and 4 month old daughter in the car. And his license was suspended. Nice.

Die In A Fire

I would rather die in a fire than fly during the holidays. This is the time of year when every loser on the planet scrapes together the loose change from their laundry money stash and their couch cushions and buys a plane ticket. These people don't know how to travel, let alone fly. They come onto the plane carrying animals, guitars, and wailing children.

“Ladies and gentlemen, thanks for flying with us today. Please stow your oversized steamer trunks and enjoy your flight to hell.?

The guy next to me is wearing a North Pole expedition jacket with fur cuffs and a a gold watch complete with the iced out spinning hubcap. The jacket doesn't come close to fitting in his seat, so he's way into my seat with his arms and elbows and his faux fur coat. He's a playa. Ear rings. Toe rings. Breath that would wilt an oak.

“You sure you don't want to put your parka in the overhead compartment?? I offer.

Clear Creek Slander and Extortion

Clear Creek County is an organized crime ring that extorts money from citizens driving up and down the I-70 corridor. Listen to "Kim" in Georgetown, Colorado, an underling in the criminal enterprise slandering me while attempting to extort money. How Kim rose from a 12-pack closing-time one-night-stand to a position of prominence in the Clear Creek County crime ring is not hard to fathom once your hear the slanderous, lascivious diatribe she deposited on my answering machine. Her outrageous allegations are absolutely baseless. Total and complete fabrications. Hard to believe that these people are in business. I should report them to the FBI and get a RICO prosecution rolling against them.

Cumberland Tunnel

I didn't hop any trains this weekend, as it was too cold. I would have though, if I had been wearing warmer clothes. Here's a link to a web site that shows a good portion of the train ride I took. It covers some of the line, from Tullahoma to the Cumberland Tunnel.

The Unsung Hobo

This slideshow is composed of original images I shot over one weekend in October(2006). Most of these images were shot while I was riding in an open boxcar from TN to AL. There is also an aerial image of Nashville, and a few shots from Signal Mountain near Chattanooga, TN. All photos were captured using a Canon EOS 20D and a Canon EF 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM lens.

This slideshow (3:47) is a 10 Meg self-playing executable named hobo.swf created using Imagematics StillMotion PE. Soundtrack is Soul Meets Body by Death Cab For Cutie, off of the Plans album.

Also, this story is a chapter in the book Killing Strangers.
