Geocache Description:

He makes me as surefooted as a deer, enabling me to stand on mountain heights. He trains my hands for battle; He strengthens my arm to draw a bronze bow. You have given me your shield of victory. Your right hand supports me; your help has made me great. You have made a wide path for my feet to keep them from slipping.

Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Survivor [4.9]

Survivor contestant/Colby: So here we are, in a region of Australia where out of the world's ten most deadly snakes, nine of them inhabit this region. It was harrowing. You come across a Taipan on the trail and you get bit: dead. Thirty minutes flat.

Holocaust survivor/Solly: Let me tell you, that's a very interesting story. I was in a concentration camp! You never even suffered one minute in your life compared to what I went through!

Colby: Look, I'm saying we spent 42 days trying to survive. We had very little rations, no snacks-

Solly: Snacks? What are you talking snacks? We didn't eat, sometimes for a week, for a month!

Colby: I couldn't even work out. They certainly didn't have a gym.

Solly: What? What are you-

Colby: I mean, I wore my sneakers out and the next thing you know, I've got a pair of flip-flops!

Solly: Flip-flops?!

Colby: I slept on the ground, on the dirt, ok? 118 degrees during the day, 98 at night with 98% humidity.

Solly: 45 degrees below zero!

Colby: Did you guys have a bathroom?

Solly: A bathroom?!

Colby: We didn't have one.

Solly: We had twelve people at a time, would go and $h!+ on each other!

Colby: Well, I'm sure you guys had toilet paper.

Solly: We had newspaper.

Colby: We had mosquitoes.

Solly: Mosquitoes. You see this glass eye? Eh? Eh?

Colby: Have you even seen the show?

Solly: Did you ever see our show? It was called the Holocaust!

After the death of Moses the servant of God, God spoke to Joshua, Moses’ assistant:

“Moses my servant is dead. Get going. Cross this Jordan River, you and all the people. Cross to the country I’m giving to the People of Israel. I’m giving you every square inch of the land you set your foot on—just as I promised Moses. From the wilderness and this Lebanon east to the Great River, the Euphrates River—all the Hittite country—and then west to the Great Sea. It’s all yours. All your life, no one will be able to hold out against you. In the same way I was with Moses, I’ll be with you. I won’t give up on you; I won’t leave you. Strength! Courage! You are going to lead this people to inherit the land that I promised to give their ancestors. Give it everything you have, heart and soul. Make sure you carry out The Revelation that Moses commanded you, every bit of it. Don’t get off track, either left or right, so as to make sure you get to where you’re going. And don’t for a minute let this Book of The Revelation be out of mind. Ponder and meditate on it day and night, making sure you practice everything written in it. Then you’ll get where you’re going; then you’ll succeed. Haven’t I commanded you? Strength! Courage! Don’t be timid; don’t get discouraged. God, your God, is with you every step you take.”

What is an Ankle Biter?
Someone or something that bites your ankles.
To a postman, an ankle biter is often known as a dog.
To an adult, an ankle biter may be a toddler.
To hikers, an ankle biter is sometimes a tick.
And so on.
"Dang ankle biter took off my whole leg!!"

Thanks to Ian Coate, we can see that an Ankle Biter is all that and more as they are masters of CAMOUFLAGE.

NAME: Ankle Biter
DANGER RANKING: Class 30 (low)

Ankle Biters are masters of camouflage.  They are so clever at hiding it is only recently we became aware of their existence. This Australian species of pixie have long remained undetected due to an uncanny ability to blend with the surroundings.  However, due to the Ankle Biter’s prankish nature we often fall foul to their mischief.  Ankle Biters delight in tripping up big people, (that’s us).  When we walk by an Ankle Biter, they may flick up a stick, pull up a root, push out a rock or anything that can get tangled in our legs and trip us up.  Their fondest pastime is ‘Big-People-Tripping’.  Designed by Ian & Sue Coate (Copyright - Ian Coate, )
