    That seemed to be an above average sized leach, at least if it was around here it would be! Leaches LOVE Bruciehi5! I think I’ve worked out how to “leach proofish” myself. Special Inov-8 socks with gaiters attached and long plastic rain pants that have pull tight shock cord things on the bottom. I pull the cord tight, then for good measure I wrap the shock cord around my lower leg just above my ankle and attach a small carabiner to hold it in place. I only got to try it once, at the end of the last summer rain season in a leach infested hell hole. Seemed to work pretty well.

    hahaha im an expedition leader, scientists, film/documentary crews, groups etc

    I also do conservation work and disaster relief work when i get the chance.

    other than that im just fascinated by anthropology and linguistics so use my spare time to learn as many languages and cultures as possible.

    not your everyday nine to five but it still has all the same problems, just presented in a different format... i.e leaches instead of annoying co-workers....
