Wow, that would have been scary! 11 feet of snake is no joke! I am glad you could reach the alcohol. Out of curiosity, is there any specific type of alcohol, or does anything work? I am thinking of say rubbing alcohol vs Vodka vs Rum vs oh a Beer or something. Just curious. I would think rubbing alcohol and Vodka might work, but rum is sugary...it is still hard though... anyone know the specifics on that?
