    Last trip to the swamp before the summer overgrowth takes over.

    Me and good ole Possum took our last trip to our spot in the swamp by the tracks. Hardest grown we ever hunted the shells and roots are the worst itís basically a shell mound. Iíve been sick in bed for the last 2 weeks with the flu and this was my first day out. Not only was it a bust but by me wanting to move a fallen tree to see if I was missing the one spot all winter I pulled my sciatic nerve when a swamp vine sprang the tree back when I gave it the heave ho....ouch! I knew what it was that very second and ended the trip.....bed bound again uggggh. Anyone who has dealt with the sciatic nerve knows what Iím taking about. I like to thank God and my friend Mark, who should me this spot, for allowing me to find 5 major bucket listers from this small high spot in the middle of the swamp. See ya next year!! 1852 Trime Click image for larger version.

    You should try to find a good licensed acupuncturist. Mine does miracles with any kind of pain. My first visit, I hobbled in bent over and dragging my right leg that felt like it was on fire. I walked out upright and pain free 1 1/2 hours later after 2 years of constant pain. I go for "tune ups" every 6 weeks or so to stay functioning.

    Nice finds! I have had the sciatica..and then the surgery. It took a long time to walk right again but now it's MUCH better. (I disintegrated 2 disks) I haven't been sick for a few years, but just this week came down with the projectile stuff, vertigo, nausea.. I hate it! On another note are you saying it's gonna be ANOTHER year before the Swamp is drained
