This is important information to remember, dont let your bravado, or haste trick you. when crossing 100 feet of black berry briars,DON'T WHERE SHORTS!!!,even if you do have a machette.oh and if you have just spent 5 hours on a riding lawn mower and your sun burt from the knees down. yeah thats gonna only make it worse.

A lesson you will never forget I'm sure.
I learned what poison ivy is by walking into a thicket of it to answer the call of nature years ago. I learned real quick to not do that again.

Another lesson I thought I had already learned ..... reminded me again this morning..... If you are walking in the desert and something is poking you in the leg (like a simple stick or thorn) LOOK before you just reach down and try and remove it!!!
I was stalking a 'yote and keep eyes on him.... not the ball of Teddybear Cholla that was now not only stuck to my pant leg but now three fingers of my right hand.
They hold skin like barbed superglue!!

lol ... thanks for the walk down memory lane ... those wild blackberry bushes are BRUTAL ... My dad planted them in his hedgerow around his property to keep people from crossing his land. Worked like a charm and we had more blackberries than we knew what to do with to boot! LOL

the smoke from burning poison ivy is very toxic to your lungs.be careful around brush fires
