      Oh don't worry. These things happen. I had a problem a few hikes ago with some dehydration so it happens to us all.

    Sat. 8-3-13 I hiked to the summit of Table Rock today, on the way down I came within five feet of stepping on a rattlesnake which was on the trail. If he had not given his warning signal I shutter to think what could have happened.
