In the US, most snakes (and most that swim) are non poisonous.  A lot of snakes swim and the northern water snake is fairly prevalent in Chesapeake creeks and tributaries.  They have a variety of markings and some look very much like copperheads, the only venomous snake in MD.  They also hang around rip rap, just like copperheads so not fun to be cleaning the bottom and look up to see a snake swimming along.  In our area, copperheads are around but not aggressive and probably over reported due to the number of water snakes.  

 

 

You can find Timber Rattlesnakes in western Maryland.  They are somewhat uncommon, but my son came across one last year while out hiking.

I came across this boat for sale recently. Lots of character and looks like a boat you could dream about and dream on.

Interesting boat, althoiugh not quite the same, it looks like it could have been drawn by Cornu.

In Topic: Autonomous, self driving cars? How say you?

05 July 2016 - 05:00 PM

I'm looking forward to self driving cars.  I figure that it will take 25 years or so before it will be so commonplace that human drivers will be banned on most roads.  At that point I'll be in my 80's and probably shouldn't drive anyway.

 

I will miss doing things like dropping the top and running through the gears on a nice winding road. 

 

Then again, getting rid of those idiot drivers will be pretty sweet, too.
