Re:more PI was/Re: Hammock Camping Newsletter
- JWJ-Not only can the smoke get a person through his clothes, the smoke can cause a severe problem for the lungs. They were lucky!R(SNIP)
I know someone who cleared his backyard and burned the weeds.
Throughout the day, the winds shifted and started blowing on their
clothesline. Not such a big deal...until they found out the weed
pile had poison ivy in there! How did they find out, you ask?
His daughter (18 at the time...a bit older than I was then) ended up
with PI all over her upper AND lower parts. Yep, those parts. I
saw her once during this ordeal...didn't look too comfortable.
Someone else told me it's just a myth that PI can infect you through
smoke...I said just tell her that! Sure wasn't a myth that day.
