    Looks like a good entry port for the old flesh eating bacteria. Time to rock the wet and dry sand for a while. Be safe...

    Yikes! I did something like that in July... I was on a camping trip with metal detector of course and on the first night there, I was trying to break a big rotten log from the bush in the dark to throw in the fire and as I stomped down hard on it, there was a sharp stem on the log where my foot slammed down and it went right through my flip flop and deep into my foot. It went in quite deep, basically had a hole in my foot now and the first thing I thought I canít metal detect in the water, never mind I couldnít even walk on it. No way was I gonna let this keep me from detecting in the water. Next morning I put a thick layer of ozanol on and in the hole of my foot, got the wifey to drive to town for water proof bandages and away I went limping to the beach and in the water I went. I detected for 3 days limping in the water with a hole in my foot, never got infected and healed up in a week. Ozanol will save your life, I always keep in my truck. Hope you heal up fast.

    I posted about this before with Casper...this film will seal those stitches, I just had the same on my back...apply and it's sealed..never even shaved my back, my cut was 1.5 inchs long

    A film that is like a second skin you can put over wounds and it is water tight. The Tegaderm film will conform to just about any shape needed also. These are perfect when you have a sore or cut and entering unsafe water that may hold bacteria. I've used the film many times and taking it off you would think it would hurt but not at all. Like pulling sunburnt dead skin off..

    Hate it when that happens. Such a surprise, you know? Hey, cash in some of that treasure you're hoarding, and pay someone to do that yard work! Glad you're OK.

    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    The Bald Eagle photo...he/she posed for me, gave me it's best American look. I felt privileged to get the shot.

    Anything that keeps you from detecting is a bad thing! I reckcon 2 weeks to inspect, clean equipment and sort your treasures!
