    correct, it can be on the bottom of your shoes.. you shit on your coutch later that night, and the next day, your wondering why everyone in the house has it. yes, its like motor oil.. it will spread over anything. including toast! yummy.. NOT.

    try wearing long pants, with long socks, then when you get back home, TAKE THEM OFF. i hunt in the forrest, and tramp through brush all the time, its easy to avoid.. dont toutch anything with bare hands, and you’ll be fine.. lol

    guess you never got poison ivy over 90% of your body.. yes, its happened to me.. and its not fun. camping out in the woods cutting brush for a fire without knowing what it is that your cutting, can get you in a world of pain and suffering.

    no kidding.. i dunno about anyone else, but you should ALWAYS wear pants when hiking. and its always a good idea to have a belt on to. so your pants dont fall off! or so you can hang your self, if you ever feel the need to just end it and call it a mercy killing.. lol

    why would you need to build a shelter or be afraid of poisonous stuff if you are close to a ranger station?

  18. Funny, I’m so at peace in the woods I always get that shit and I already knew what it looked like. But I like tramping through the woods so oh well.

  19. I cant see at the end.

  20. Learn more dude, and when you demonstrate something, make sure there is no bright light patch behind you as the lens will automatically contract like a human eye does and it will appear dark.

  21. you can go like this…o…oh ah! on a poison ivy and it wont do anything lol

  22. well you take a leaf and rub it on your nuts and if it looks like you got a std then its not a good plant

  23. You dont have to pick the leaf & release the fluids in order to get the effect of the plant
