Reminds me of last year. I was riding my motorcycle and had a deer rush out of
some cover and leap over my front tire. I was doing about 50mph at the time. No
contact was made but I distinctly remember being able to see the individual hairs
on that deer's butt. Pretty close call.

I'm glad you and your Dad made it through your nature encounter unharmed.
