:: My first graybanded kingsnake was found on June 22, 1982, on pandale dirt road, about 50 yards North of the top of "blairs hill", which is 2 miles +/- North of US 90. My friend Mike Puckett, was the actual spotter on this snake, as she was laying in a washboard (dip in the roads surface) and fortunately Mike was shining a 2 cell flashlight onto the road out the passenger side window & yelled snake after we had drove by her. This happened at 2:20am on that June night & was nearing the end of our weeks stay in that area. At capture time, this snake, a female, measured about 14-15" long, was a light phase black-headed blairs, Hollister saw us that night & congratulated us on the find, we felt great to have spent a week there on a first trip to the trans-pecos ever for both of us. That set my obession into play for alterna...... John
