+Cymbaline Posted May 14, 2004 Share Posted May 14, 2004 I'm sure this is markwelled somewhere, but my cursory search didn't find anything. I don't normally cache during the summer months, and anything above 80 degrees is "getting pretty danged warm" to me - unless there's a lake or pool nearby. Unfortunately for me, I live in a suburb of Atlanta, GA - which means heat AND nasty humidity. I like cold-weather caching, which means jeans. "Warm/Hot" weather caching to me means shorts - REI, Old Navy, Umbro whatever, but lack of material is a good thing in regards to heat. As such, I've been pulling ticks off me left and right recently - with or without bug spray. I realize ticks are a necessary evil during summertime caching. What's been getting me lately is the abundance of barbed vines/weeds/etc that I've enountered. Granted, my legs aren't anything Betty Paige would own (no, i'm not that old, but man she had the gams!) due to multiple softball leagues, soccer leagues, hiking, whatever. They ain't pretty, but I don't like bleeding. The problem I have is that I can't get myself to wear long pants even while I'm getting torn up - too frickin' hot. Outside of the obvious "watch where you're going", anyone got some hints/trade secrets they're willing to give up? Salves? rubs? anything? Quote Link to comment
