F’in poison ivy. I’ve barely even started riding in the woods for the season and I’ve already gotten my first outbreak of the itchy rash. I don’t even remember ever going anywhere close to some. Damn my mother for passing on here genes for making me uber allergic to poison ivy, oak and sumac. I guess I haven’t exactly picked the best hobby to pursue considering poison ivy grows in the woods… There are a couple of trails in particular that I pretty much have to stay away from completely because even though I know enough to not touch the oily leaves, others aren’t as careful and end up spreading the oils onto other trees and bushes so no matter how careful I am, I still get it.
