Zanfel is the shit if you get PI! It is over the counter. The only thing that sucks about it is it is $50.00 an oz. BUT, it works every time.

Lots of docs say that. I have proven otherwise too often to believe it. I think Teletumbler's position is spot on.

Maybe most people are not sensitive enough to get spreading from the oils in a blister's puss, but I know beyond a reasonable doubt that I do.

.......ivy protection.....

....yo, banks.....dawn dishwasher soap, the shit....bring a small hotel sized bottle of it....a super thin layer is all you need(ankles, hips, below the eyes on the face and on a thin layer on the paddle)...a portage suit sucks because it allows you to get lazy in there, and soak up more oil....might as well wear a suit made of paper towels!!!!!! fuck that....i have worn shorts only(no protection) on 45+ runs in MONTROSE COUNTRY.....the only place i get it is were i get scratched by rocks or sticker bushes....and thats ok...i have developed a likin' for the itch....back in the day i used to bring popsickle sticks to piss with.... and to avoid the MONSTROSITY SYNDROME....once the itch arrives you can quickly get rid of it by the use of clorox bleach......never tried technu, never will......i've never washed my gear at cave camp either...instead, i've developed a style of yoga....MONTOSE avoidance skills are impeccable.....but you will have it hit you in the face.....wearing gear in the portage also readies you for heat exhaustion and dehydration.....then you have to run some shit feeling subpar.....on a side note, it's fall now so the "heat factor" is slowly slippin''s good all the way til the last week in november....people used to get poison ivy riding in my vehicle....i've tried to grow it in the butte, as a house plant.....too high up is the color.....dawn is the brand that is most trused in MONTOSE COUNTRY......when are you going and can i join you guys?.....milozadik wishecouldski 420 cb........

Thanks Milo, Dawn Blue is what I will get. I paddled Gore today with Craig, He had poison ivy on his face. Technu failure? or application failure? Planning on going in soon, you are welcome to join, I will let you know when. I want to try two laps in two days sometime. I've got the perfect wheelchair setup with a 50 caliber for the dig your own grave race; If they will even let me compete.
