    Well I just got back home from the trip to Wharton Park in the New Jersey Pine Barrens. Although it was all to brief for me, I had a blast. Not the least of which was finally meeting more forum members...Joe/JBL (again), Steve/Elgecko, Bob/NJNewbie and Mark/Ozzy. Everyone was SO nice...just like I knew they would be. (Well...OK...except for Ozzy who was lethal with his snake tongs... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] ) Steve, Bob and Joe got there a day or so before so they got more time to explore. Although the time was waaaaaaaaaaay too short, I had a blast and saw some beautiful sights! There were purps all over and sometimes you just couldn't help from stepping on the sundews. There was a green snake, frogs and even a horse in the bog (with a rather snooty rider).

    I'm sure there will be pics posted soon. I have to download mine tomorrow.

    But what I reaaaaally want to know is...how many people are itching?? There were CHIGGERS! I found a couple on me but I think Ozzy found a lot more on him. I'm wondering, Steve, since you were in shorts....have you felt a tad itchy? Got any red spots? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] I'm wondering who got the most chiggers?

    Thanks everyone for a very fun boggy experience. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Had a great time also.
    Glad to meet up with some other members as well.
    I'm going to try to work on getting my pics up ASAP.

    You guys were great, but the chiggers are now my best, BEST friends! I'm covered in them, along with ticks in unsavory places. Where are those tongs when you need them? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    Ohhhh...ticks?? I hadn't thought of that. So far I haven't found any. Maybe I should check myself again.... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    Shall I give suggestions of where to look? Have someone check behind your knees for one. I had a deer tick there once for three days, and it was only discovered when my brother saw the bulls eye rash...

    I'm sure you'll be fine.

    I used to get ticks all the time when I was a kid. I'd find them in my scalp and one time in my ear. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    I just got home 11pm.
    It was nice meeting everybody, including Joe. LOL

    I am so glad to see, I'm not the only one that poached chiggers. I bet I poached more than anybody else. I have 30 of them. I knew I was in trouble last night after I took a shower and started finding them on me. I picked off about 8 chiggers last night. I have around 20 or 30 bites mostly on my ankles and feet. I guess I'm a chigger magnet. I told you guys I always get them. I knew I should have used more bug spray.
    I can't wait until we do it again.

    Do I detect sarcasm? Listen Tong Boy, I beat you cold in the chigger dept. I had well over one hundred on each foot, not to mention unmentionables. I knew something like this would happen just standing close to you! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
