(HT: BK for the headline meme)

Yeah, heading out tomorrow for a late summer, long weekend ‘cabin-in-the-woods’ (snake bite kit at the ready). Temps here in Ohio have dropped considerably, and it’s going to be a rather cool but sunny weekend for hiking and kayaking. But if you’ve ever seen the “cabin in the woods” movies… well, I’m hoping the bears and bobcats stay in their lane.

So, here they be, fellow Spectators:
