Makes sense. I have a rip cord inflatable I wear while canoeing. They make ones that auto deploy when they get wet too, but I calculated the odds of me getting knocked out and needing that feature...

I forgot the deet last weekend and got bit up pretty good by the mosquitoes. Luckily it was cool enough so I was mostly covered except for my head, neck and hands. No other bugs to speak of. It...

I second the possible IBS. As someone who had it when I was younger, I found that certain foods as well as stress were triggers. Anything high in fat was bad. My doc gave me an antispasmodic that I...
