Re: [CentralTexasGeocachers] Re: Must-do San Diego caches?
- We got chiggers. I've suffered more chigger bites than ticks.
Now, Northern California's foxtails came in wonderous and painful variety. And I'd rather fight with greenbriar than blackberry cane. But that's NORTH....

Texas, rattlers.Ticks, well, with my experience, California 1, Texas 0.Caching fun? I recently asked that question myself, while extracting cactus thorns and trying to detach Devils head thorns in 102 degree heat. But still I cache. Crazy sport.Carlin/1CarlinLast log for "It Sneaks up on San Diego" (GCZ1VE):"We took the adventurous way to the cache by crossing the creek unnecessarily and dodging LOTS of poison oak. Very cool location and set up for the cache. The container lid has some cracks, but the contents are dry. After putting things back, we went the easy way out which consisted of bulldozing our way through walls of plants a foot taller than we were. This is where I came just inches from stepping on an angry rattler. I never saw it because I jumped 10 feet in the air, but Triple Crown's eyes got as big as his head as he looked down at my feet. I also removed a tick from inside my pocket as TC was "wrapping things up." Isn't caching fun???!!!"I don't think so...Mary Bethemmy-n-sapphie
