    Joe! I hope you are kidding! Did you really have over a hundred on each foot?? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] How come I don't have any? I found a few crawling around my ankles but so far I have no itchy spots. I guess my blood is too sweet for chiggers. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Sorry I missed you all! Bad luck, and not a small amount of STOOOOOOPIDITY on my part. I WAS there, just never ran into everyone. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    Next time I will be more organized.

    We were so disappointed Schloaty. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] And I wanted to see Miranda too. But you gotta look for the good in every bad thing...at least you didn't get any chiggers! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]

    Hey,
    How come I didn't get any chiggers either? Could it be the gallon of toxic bug spray I applied every day. You know the stuff that says don't spray near eyes and face, and don't drink(duh). Spraying it on your arms and legs, and then sweating profusely isn't harmful, because there's no such thing as trans dermal absorbation(that's my story and I'm stickin to it).
    Or maybe I was standing close enough to the chick, I mean tick magnet. I hear they're a sucker for a nice set of tongs!
    p.s. had a great time, and it was a pleasure meeting all of you.
    there is a pleasure in being mad, which only a madman can enjoy!

    Your blood must be too sweet PAK! I did not exaggerate--at all. In fact, I probably underestimated. I did not apply spray to my feet, but did apply it to my ankles and legs. As you recall, I was wearing shorts, and those short athletic socks. I guess the chiggers on my ankles got a taste of the deet and moved south. Unfortunately, those on my upper legs got a taste, and moved NORTH--enough said...

    My chicken legs taste like chicken--only less meaty.

    I actually remembered to PACK bug repellent. I did not remember to USE bug repellent. But maybe that's why I didn't get any chiggers. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I remembered to use the bug spray. I didn't put a lot on because I didn't think they would be that bad. I'm use to the bugs in the green swamp and I thought the jersey bugs woud be that bad.

    WRONG

    I sprayed only my arms and face.

    So I'm sure you can guess where I got all the chiggers. See joe we do have something in common. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    I'm so sorry...You see, the North and South do have something in common--chiggers both North and South--Yuck.

    I scraped a great deal of these buggers off with a sharpened gerber blade. I don't recommend that you attempt this with a machete. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]
