    From the pics ya'll posted, it was all around you. That was one of the first thing I saw on the trail pics. Course I have to hone in the stuff since I am sort of alergic to it. If I am 50 feet near it, I'm going to have a rash! Bummer Old dog got it. Hope it dries up quickly fer ya!

    I didn't experience any PI problems. And I was into all kinds of off-trail areas.
    Glad it didn't find me...

    Yeah it was every where. Kind of expected it especially when I saw some beginning to bloom. Not my first time, probably not my last, with PI. I have an old traditional remedy that works for me. Oatmeal poltice held on location with guaze and ace bandage overnight. Seems to dry it out. Luckily was just calf of left leg. Should be gone in the morning.

    Sorry to hear about your misfortune, olddog.
    Poison Ivy and general stickers is why I hike in long pants, year round. I use some super lightweight nylon ones.

    Just one of lifes little inconviences. Put up with for as long as I can remember. Had a brother who was immune or something. The only time he ever had PI was after we had to sleep togeather at a relatives once, he cussed me for a week.

    I absolutely suck at identifying PI.

    If it has 3 leaves I leave it be just to be safe.

    Not completely cured but dried out and the itch is gone. Not sure about some of these old folklore cures but this seems to work. Maybe is just because it's covered and you can't scratch, or maybe just mind over matter. I'm ready for the next round.

    No, cramps were inside the left thigh. Your not jerking my string are you? A few more trips like the last and I should have all the kinks worked out.

    No Wasn't messing with you i just wondered if it was the same place cause I was thinking when you were rubbing it you could have spread the PI then. Just a thought, I stayed behind you for the second half and didn't get it. Come to thing of it though I don't remember ever having an issue with it so maybe I'm one of the lucky immune ones. And as for messing with you I think I was the only one that fell down, or at least the only one to admit it
