Snake and then the screaming began.

We have 15 RV's checked into the Calico Ghost town campground. I grab 2 guys to check out a nasty hill climb. Now let me give you a little history of the 2 contestants in the short drive to the hill or as my friends would say. "Oh cool the dirt Indy 500" As I'm leading down the road, I am passed by Indy drivers one and 2. Suddenly Indy driver one pulls over and announces his daughter needs to use a bush. After deploying my parachute for the 100 - 0 stop and reassuring my wife I meant to do that and the cup imprint on her forehead won't be visible if she just pulls her hat down a little.
Indy driver 1 is my archrival in the group we get along but were not pals. Did I mention he is also a MMF fighter with a house full of trophies? You think I would learn but no, I'm stupid all the way to the bone. He is driving with his top off, doors off, headband on the Charles Bronson look.
As his daughter gets out to pee, she screams snake, he jumps out runs to her, almost stepping on a 5 ft rattlesnake. I jump out because someone has to save the dads and their daughters. I'm the official rescuer on the trail from animals. So many City men run at the sight of a snake usually leaving their children behind.
I look at him and tell him you almost bought the farm. He argues I pick it up and show him. We're off to the hill, he can't climb it and turns around and is facing the valley below, radio blaring. I'm walking down to where he's parked when I spot a 5' piece of black and red intwined rope, I stuff it in my pocket when I walk by his jeep I toss the rope on his lap and say you forgot your snake. He has a 5-point seatbelt harness on, He starts screaming and trying to get that harness off. At first, I start laughing and then I started to run for my getaway car. At the same time my wife thinks there is a woman being mugged and starts to panic. On the drive back I was in the lead and no way he was catching me Indy 500 got nuttin on me. lol
