Or just ask @ericbphoto to point it out for you. I think he got up close and personal with it last year.
You mean he lied to use when he said it turned out to be some kind of bacterial infection?!?! :oops:

My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
It definitely was NOT poisonous plants, though at first it seemed to be.

Sorry. I thought it was poison ivy. I'm not even going to ask where you got the infection from. LOL.

I have no clue where it came from. I started having symptoms the very first night. I seem to remember getting splashed by the guy mopping the restroom floor at Buccee's. Seems like a stretch. I'll never really know.

As if there could be anything growing on the floor of a truckstop restroom...

I would almost rather have poison ivy. :unsure:

Buccee's isn't a truck stop. They don't even allow Semi's in the lot.

Do they not have Buccee's up there in corn country??

Chiggers... beware of chiggers.

I couldn't say where I got them... I just know they tore my ankles up. It will be pants and deet for me this year.

Not sure I'll get a deluxe site this year... I'll figure it out and get reservations in.

We live about 2 hours from LBL. Should be out there at least a few times before then. We will most definitely be attending this one. Would very much like to meet some of you. I have only met @Robertmangrum.rm

I added @SenorNoob and @22RangerTremor to the attendees.

Like every year... I follow this list as a headcount for campfire pizza.

I guess we will plan that for Friday night again.

I'm still working the logistics on how to get all the supplies there and what will be offered. I'll add more on that as time gets closer.

@85_Ranger4x4 is the FIL and BIL planning the trip this year?

I'm going to try be there Wednesday and leave either late Saturday or early Sunday. I have to be back for work Sunday night at 8pm. As of right now I don't know if Brittney will be coming or not.

It's also important to know if you're bringing a guest or how many in your group.
