Prayers out to all whom contributed and supported our country in her darkest hour.)

  1. the answer to the trivia question is: you disarmed the booby trap made from someone who is either a moonshiner or hiding a weed crop. By the way, that must have been very scary for the two of you and I am so glad that you two are safe. Never thought I would see booby traps here in the USA.

  2. On each mission, your clothing selection and layering is really excellent.

  3. I dont know how to do this privately but you did two things for the public. First you made us aware that there are booby traps and snakes along trails to protect illegal activities. Awareness is a big deal. Second you disarmed one of the traps so no one else would be affected by that shotgun shell. Thanks.

  4. I really like seeing dead reckoning demonstrated. It was a lot clearer than reading it from a book. It is always nice to see a married couple on TV that is in love as well!

  5. You pointed out dangerous booby traps set by illegal moonshiners, pot growers or people protecting ginseng and then you set off one of the traps so that no hikers could be injured or killed, you and Ruth did a great job, I know that had to be scary as hell going down over those cliffs! Stay safe and stay blessed!

  6. You both pointed out some man made dangers and natural. Cliffs, thorny trees, and rattle snakes. Boobie traps set for concealment of moonshine, marijuana, and ginseng. Ruth was actually the one who spotted the live shotgun shell, and Mykel disarmed it.
