As usual, some of us got off topic a few days ago on this thread:
We got into a discussion about insect repellants, what works in some areas and for some insects, etc. I have a question and decided to start a new thread, on this specific topic, which will also probably get hijacked.
My specific question to 2Valen is: what concentration of Permethrin are you using? I have some spray stuff but it's only 0.5% Permethrin. I doubt that's what you are dilluting. Also, you say "add the correct amount...". Could you be more specific.
I get eaten alive by chiggers and although spray Deet works OK, they still seem to find a way around that to a limited extent.
Steve, how about selling detector prospector hats with your logo and our username on them. Would be very handy identifying others when out and about. Also, what attire works best in the desert heat? Watching videos I see all kinds of clothes worn but it's hard to tell the heat they're worn in. I'm planning on going to the veterans outing in June as are others. Would be nice to be able to recognize the others easily and to know what to wear for the weather.
Thanks, and love the form,
What do you guys recommend for walking a creek where one encounters soft bottom pools that can be chest deep water and no way around it? I will be in a situation like this Labor day weekend and need to plan ahead? Need to get my little highbanker and camping gear past the spots too. Might float them in a large cement mixing tub with foam slabs bolted to the sides and a towrope but doubt it will support my 200 pounds too? Soft, gooey bottoms give me the willies as you can get stuck quite easy and nobody to help you?
I had a high speed blowout on one of my detecting boots yesterday but due to my amazing physical abilities and fast thinking I was able to maintain course and continue detecting.
I'm a pretty even tempered, mellow kind of prospector and I keep my cool ,even when the world is collapsing down around my ears. So back to the subject at hand------------
WHY ^%(&#@^!!* CAN'T SOME ^&%+)$&@& COME OUT WITH A ^%_)$!* PARE OF %&$#(#@ DETECTING BOOTS THAT WILL LAST FOR ONE &%$(%#!@ SEASON!?
Thank you Dr. Herschbach for the therapy session. I feel much better now.
