    Well, I finally have almost all my things unpacked and I had some work to do before I can head for the swamps. I am doing the last bits right now and hopefully will be done in a couple of hours. When I'm done I'm going to the Green Swamp and stay a couple of days or as long as I can stand the heat, bugs and no food. I really need to pack light and water is a priority, along with bug spay, gps, and camera.
    I hope to find where the vft's were poached, if so I'll get pics.
    I hope to find some things that I've never seen before since I don't have any time restraints. I'll let you all know how it goes as soon as I get back.
    Everybody please pray that I can avoid the chiggers. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_t_32.gif[/img]

    lol No way you can avoid chiggers. Just take fingernail polish with you. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    I wish you had a live web cam to take...hehe. That would be cool!

    Don't forget your PHONE so if a snake bites you, you can call for help. Take some of that beef jerky with you. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Be careful, pee before you go and don't stick your head out the window. (Those were always my mother's instructions). [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Hope you get some grand photos for us. Have fun!

    Unfortunatly I know. Everytime I come out of the swamp I bring some new little red friends with me. Is it considered poaching if you take chiggers out of their natural habitat? I sure wish it was illegal to bring them out of the woods.

    Everybody should try getting a really bad case of chiggers and then take a flight on a crowded airplane. It's so hard to to scratch the sensitive areas when there is a person sitting right beside you.

    Pak I don't have any jerky made yet. You should send me some of that ham with VA gentalmen hotsauce on it.

    Hmmmmmmmm....have you ever made ham jerky?? Now THAT I might eat! lol Yeah that sauce is good. I also heard that the VA Gentleman BBQ sauce is good too but I haven't tried that yet.

    Doesn't take chiggers to make me itch...I itch anyway. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] But all you have to do is slap some clear fingernail polish on the red spots. Suffocates the chiggers. Of course you could use colored polish...then we could call you "Dottie". hee [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]

    I would rather have 100 ticks instead of chiggers. Chiggers are baby harvest mites. They are pretty much microscopic. They burrow under your skin, feed and in a few days dig back out of your skin and go on their way, leaving the most itchy red bump you'll ever have. I have never gotten one chigger. If you get one you'll get at least ten. The bump will stop itching in about two to three weeks.
