    So anybody want to guess how a backpack with a gun in it gets “left in the woods”. Sounds a lot like some more survivalist crap. What’s next, land mines?

        I’d say odds are that rwnj murderer that’s on the run in the woods of Pa has his hideouts boobytrapped. Mines along the approaches would not surprise me.

          Eric Frein? Really interesting story. I Google his name daily to see if he’s been captured. He’s like a younger, more energetic Cliven Bundy sans the militia.
