I'm just doing a little experimenting here. . .

Shep tells about his experience landing in Florida an finding a turtle right in his path.
Other animals found on the runway are the moose and bear.
A pilot landing in the jungles of the Amazon gets shot at by the local natives. Shep decribes the blowguns they use and the poison darts. Gives a detailed description of how they are made. A process which takes almost a year. Mentions the blowgun he received on his trip to Peru.
