Another round of Prednisone. Arms and waist covered. Glad I was wearing pants at St Joe park O. Feel sorry for all the ROTC kids wearing shorts. Couple checks on the south west side in a field of knee high ivy.

At the risk of being unsolicited advice guy (I swear I'm trying to cut down)...what is your decontamination protocol? YMMV - the central piece of mine is keeping a bottle of Tecnu in my shower and applying liberally if I have any suspicion.

I am PI sensitive, and the only time I got nailed this year was skipping protocol when I didn't do the math on flip flops, untrimmed trail, and one stupid Nitro flag pickup (near the Halfmoon boat launch).

Your correct. My post contact protocol of wet wipes and a shower later is not wotking. I'll pick up some Tecnu. I've never had this much trouble with PI. It really is a bad year for it.
