Chigger please! Yeah, there were a lot of bugs there.

I've had them before. They suck.

I got poison ivy at the fest. I can't wait for cold weather so I can wear full sleeves and long pants without dying.

Dude I hate those little bitches....Put lice shampoo on your legs dry and let it sit for 5 or 10 minutes....Jump in shower and rinse off....Good thing is they don't jump from person to person....They stay on the host and won't leave till they die or are killed off....Yup I've had em before:mad2:

Mike and MIG - You got them at Allaire no doubt. I dont think any of the northern parks even have them. I have had the worst chiggers in recent memory this year all from Allaire.

Chiggers live in tall grass, not rocky mountainous areas. If you ride Allaire and cross hospital road at the snow-fence, over the street, over the dirt hump, into the tall grass(by the care center), you are in the most Chigger infested spot on earth.

The only cure is time, scatching, and some chigger-x. If anyone is unclear about the spot I speek of just raise your voice and I will throw up a little map.

My arms, and behind my right knee, are just now starting to heal after the TM at 6mile. Building a new trail with a lawn mower, and weed whacker left me with poison ivy and chiggers.......ah yes,.. good times,.. good times. Glad it wasn't too hot that day.

I think I got them there or on the coke trail the funny part ( and I am dooming myself now )
mine don't itch at all just a bunch of little red dots on my ankles and the back of me knees..
I think the Jim+Val alcohol works on the outside of course I also think alighting the infected area on fire works also... :)
so who is down for a ride sunday? it will mosy likely be a beginner as Nick C. aka PIPER69 is going to be back...:)

yo MIG n Mike

I think those be hometown Allaire chiggers u gots. Don't be claiming North NJ import chiggers to be all fancy pants. Two days after the mooch, we all went on a 501ers ride (I'm pretty sure) at which time, I got MORE chiggers. Allaire has been evil with them this year, this is my first year ever having them, and I lived in the South for a decade.
That article referenced in an earlier post was very interesting.
