    Back in the late '90s I remember reading an article in a bike magazine... A rider had stopped to take a photo while riding out in the desert somewhere on morning. He walked off the road and as he stepped back to get a particular angle he said it was like if he'd been hit by a 2x4 in the hands of a big man... Twice. The rest of the article was about his struggle to find a way to survive, and then rehab. He was out of it for months. Seems that he was riding just as spring came about and the snake may have just come out of hibernation. The photos of his leg looked pretty bad. Didn't lose it though.

    A Rattle with Death (Outside Magazine, June 20, 2018)
    When Kyle Dickman set out on a month-long road trip with his wife and infant son last spring, he was fueled by a carefree sense of adventure that had defined his entire life. Then he got bit by a venomous snake in a remote area of Yosemite National Park, and the harrowing event changed everything.
    Advance notice, if you find such things unnerving, which I do -- when you click on the link above, your screen will be filled with a picture of a buzztail, close up, front and center.

    I've know two people who were bitten by rattlesnakes. One, a herpetologist, suffered total loss of the use of one hand. Another person, who was handling a rattlesnake (Here! Watch this!), also suffered major tissue damage to to his hand and arm from a bite. My ex was on a rafting trip in the Grand Canyon when someone on the trip was bitten and suffered zero effects (dry strike).

    Sister and aunt have been bitten by copperheads; the hospital didn't use antivenom, but just let the bite run its course. This was quite awhile ago; I don't know about current treatment options for humans. My brother's dog was bitten on the leg by a copperhead last week; the vet gave anti-inflammatory and pain meds. All the snake bites in this paragraph happened in the area around Cuero. For my late aunt and the dog, on the same ranch. Interesting that in my family's history with that ranch, since the 1940s, no one has ever seen a rattlesnake, although Mr. JB did see one about a mile away while we were gravel grinding last year.

    I'm a heat-o-the-day warrior. Pre-hydrating is huge, usually with Nuun. Sure wish my Yeti had a usable water bottle cage.

    I keep multiple pairs of gloves stashed away. They get completely soaked and start dripping from the fingertips, which sucks, but it sucks even worse when the sweating stops.

    I have some magical limit around 1hr 45min when the temps get stupid. I can keep going but it gets a little sketchy. Crossing through Travis Country and those bits of direct exposure take their toll pretty quickly.

    I really hate using Deet-based bug lotion but it's the only thing that keeps the deer-flies from eating me alive. It hinders sweating pretty badly.

    These guys are my new friend this year that just barely fit in the wide-mouth CamelBak bladders. 4 gigantic ice cubes keep my water cold but not freezing which kinda makes me feel sick.

    I know, I know. My brother keeps telling me that. Thanks for the link. I just haven't researched it and would otherwise prolly rub poison ivy all over myself. Thanks, mang.

    Use chamois cream and get your shorts off as soon as possible. Wash shorts before next ride.

    Ah yeah, all the above I know. It's just once the swamp ass settles in it aint no joke to get rid of, plus I work in the heat. After nearly 30 yrs of riding/racing I've never had it this bad. I did take a dip into BS by the HOL to cool off before riding home last week after a long ride which prolly didn't help as who knows wtf is in that water right now

    Well we certainly know what's in it "right now"!

    I work in the heat also. Had a case of crotch rot last year that wouldn't go away. Think I got from keeping shorts on too long after ride. Assos chamois cream has an antibacterial in it to help prevent these issues.
