Don't go walking on the grass trails in shorts! Advice from a Northern guy who discovered Chiggers last October. Still, a pretty area - 2013 Trip, Day 22.

Looks great, Happy Thanksgiving.

How long are you staying? I'll be there next weekend as will the Tin Can Tourists.

Speaking of Tin Can Tourists, look at this gorgeous 1961 Holiday House:

How difficult is it to learn to stand up paddle? It looks interesting, but then so does hang gliding....and I'm afraid of heights!

Cedar Key is on my agenda!

It comes really easy to most folks. If you can ride a bike you can stand on a board. The trick is to keep your center and the board's center in line.

What a difference a day makes! This morning I'm back at work wearing a coat and hat in 40 degrees. This picture was 18 hours ago at Low Key Hideaway:

Just what are "chiggers"?

I am a retired Floridian. Standard UoD (uniform of the day) for me are shorts, flip flops and tee shirt and here in Florida I wear the same attire the year around!. I only wear long pants if you die or marry and often still wear shorts at marriages, especially if it's on the beach! I even wear shorts, like many other Floridians (or recent-Floridians) to Sunday religious services. I have never seen a "chigger"! Are you trying to start some misplaced rumor down here in the Sunshine State? Now, we do have a mosquito or two on occasion down here, in some places, but it's only the females of that lot that bite. The males are docile and friendly, much like us happy Floridians!

I've go nothing against shorts (or the Sunshine State), but chiggers were new to me. They produce itchy, red "bites" around your ankles. Just in case you really have never heard of them, here is a link. I found it by doing a Goggle search - key words red bites, ankles, socks...

I've lived in Florida (@35 miles north of Tampa) since 1985 and to the best of my knowledge, have never been bitten by a chigger. Now fire ants, that is a different story. Also been stung by scorpions twice, as well as yellow jackets, wasps, and honey bees.

Chiggers aka Red Bugs live in tall grasses and bushes. They love to get into areas of tight clothing such as socks or around the waist line. We were camping at Suwannee River State park in October and my wife got hit badly after walking the dog in a field. They are worse than Mosquitos because the itch last for weeks.
