I can't say for certain if this works 100%, but rubbing baby oil or Gojo into your legs, then spraying down with insect spray may just create an oil barrier and prevent chiggers from getting a bite. It will also create an oil barrier for poison ivy. I know when I used Cedarcide, I did not get chiggers. The stuff is just expensive. Gojo is cheap.
You'll have no cell coverage so plan accordingly with however you cache "offline”.
A mile up the road from lost maples is foxfire cabins. Highly recommend. We've stayed there several times.
Chiggers, yes. Prepare accordingly.
Monkey Rock is cool. There is a cache there.
It's hot. Hydrate.
Garner and Texas Hill country SP are reasonably short drives from Lost Maples.
Garner if you've never been is very nice.
Wooo...I've activated all 7 of my Deadly Ducks...but only completed "info sheets" for 3, (yellow,red,orange if you're interested), so far...COUNTDOWN TIME!
I've put so much effort in filling out the sheets that I'm really wanting to laminate my papers. Do any/all Houston-area libraries have that capability? Or how have you done that in the past?
I've "matched" my Ducks with the following items:
Gluttony - measuring cup
Wrath - keychain flashlight (visit haunted, murderous places)
Greed - Scratch-off keychain
Sloth - freebie Pedometer
Envy - Ariel old aquarium piece...never put in aquarium
Lust - Fake diamond ring
Any ideas for the last one? Find a lion?
