    Good times

    Summer bug spray to ward off chiggers/ticks...15 dollars
    Multiple trips to the dr's office for a shot for poison ivy...40 dollars
    Summer filled fun of geocaching and 400 finds with friends...priceless!!

    Taking all precautions all summer. Bug spray, avoiding posion plants, poking around with a stick and not your hands.
    Finding a copperhead after making a wrong decision. No stick. Learning experience--priceless. Medical expenses still rising.
    To all geocachers .. don't stick your hand where you can't see.

    Yes I got bit by a nasty little Copperhead on Friday evening at Ft. Chaffee. Pretty scary for awhile but on the mend now. The report at the ER was that a lot more people have been bitten this summer than any other summer. Wonder if the hot dry weather has anything to do with that. I will defintely be more careful in the future. It only takes a second.

    I lifted one up out in the forest service the other day after looking around and in and when I pulled it out there was a snakeskin under it. I bet the ammo cans hold the cool a bit better than most other things around so they like to lye under them. just a guess though. Hope you make a fast recovery.

    and Yazzman was wondering why i haven't been going out after the Chaffee ones until it gets cold..... I can add snakes to the horde of ticks out there this summer!

    Judy,

    First of all, let me say that I am really sorry that you got bit!

    Second, I am really glad that you are much better and on the mend!

    But, finally, I just want to know .... DID YOU FIND THE CACHE AND GET THE SMILEY????
