Around Our area we have several Scourges
the first three make you cuss and sweat, but the last one will leave its
revenge on you. My Daughters Boyfriend ( we will call him L ) got
the Oak or wood herpes as he calls it.
If you never have had it count your blessings, if you have ever had it
you know what I'm talking here. Not pleasant, There are a few things
you can do to ward of the evil of the Oak, our friends just down the road
at Tec Labs make a substance I swear by (not at) Called "Tecnu".
Getting the oil off of your skin without getting it into your system is
a pain in the Buttocks, and this stuff works well, we even wash our
woodland fire gear in it.
My Father-in-law said the Local blacktail deer ate loads of the Oak
and never suffered from it and that if you ate the deer you would
become immune to the stuff. It's a homeopathic sort of thing but I
think he was right. Also my Daughter brought home Honey that
is made from Poison-oak blossoms…..and its good, once again
homeopathic principles at work.
Have a stomping good week
