    Let’s just say they aren’t from this country and if I elaborate my true feelings I’ll probably get kicked off this site.:speechless:

    That's disheartening. I've been Traeger curious, but maybe it's a red flag when a grill actually has tech support.

    I have a vague recollection of someone recently posting about some miracle treatment for poison oak, but I can't find it. Did I imagine that? F@cking Joplin.

    Take a non-drowsy antihistimine daily for a week or so to minimize the allergic reaction.

    Scrub down with some degreasing soap(dish soap, Fast Orange Pumice, Simple Green). Yea, even after the break out....the oils are still there.

    Wash all you gear....clothes, pack, pads, shoes

    Wipe down the bike with Simple Green.

    All good recommendations because you can re-infect yourself if you make contact with the oils that your attire and equipment is likely contaminated with.

    Massive exposure (from waist to ankles) just prior to a trip to UT. I "bathed" in Calamine Lotion for five days and took Benadryl at night to control itching. When we returned my doctor provided a prescription for Prednisone which helped dry the sores up in record time, and Ascend Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream which kept the sores at bay. If you can't tell, I'm extremely vulnerable to PO.

    Stop running into poison anything! I can't say that has been my plan as I have plowed through it all and came out unscathed and wonder how...

    Oh no... It's not a miracle cure, but I found the Tecnu spray on Amazon to offer the most relief.

    And like the others have said, wash everything with Simple Green- including the seat in your truck. I re-infected myself a few years back from the residue that was on the driver seat.

    Drive down to Tijuana and buy a cortisone shot at a local drugstore. Stick it in your arm or butt, and you’ll be good to go in 2 days.

    I didn't run into nuthin'. I was minding my own business descending a treacherous rock garden when the PO pulled the ground directly out from under me, sending me sprawling into its poisonous bosom.
    Agreed, the Tecnu does help. It's just one hot spot, luckily. Good thing I washed my gloves and pads as soon as I got home, as the infection is all over the small area of exposed wrist skin between my glove and elbow pad. I washed the seat cover in the truck too, but neglected to wipe the arm rest. Did that this morning. Hopefully that got it.

    Oh no @buggravy ! I can’t even say the word PO without grimacing!
    Rubbing alcohol helps too:confused:

    pay attention to where you are. If you get a strike after you get home wash with Tide. It works on PO and Poison Ivy. 9 out 10 times you will be ok if the sticks do not break your skin. Now that it is cold soon it will be all sticks, harder to identify but once you do its easy to identify. The sticks are potent and normally break the skin.

    I was outside washing the house windows/screens and noticed a little bit of water out in the street. :confused: At first I thought it was someone draining a pool but as I walked over I could see water bubbling from both sides of the street and from a crack in the middle of the street.

    Hurried and took a shower because I assume we will be without water soon.

    My neighbor across the street: Their kids and their cousins are outside playing with bikes and scooters and balls, etc. and it pumped me up. I found myself walking in and out of my garage with my chest pushed out and a pep in my step, haha! They’re new to the neighborhood, but I planted a street hockey seed that hopefully will grow into a mighty oak. I remember Kirby Court in Upland like it was yesterday. The more things change the more they stay the same, particularly with kids.
