Show Description
Thousands of slivering worms cover the runway at Cleveland airport. Spotted when a DC-10 skidded sideways on the runway. 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.
