The trip is getting close.  I thought I would have to bail out due to a nail caused msssive infection in my foot but my doctor nuked it with large doses of 2 powerful antibiotics.  It is still swollen and painful but the infection is under control now.

It might have helped my face but I wasn't lip walking.

Us "older types" have to be extra careful about infection, it seems. I guess an "older" immune system isn't as good as "it used to be' Undecided. I picked up a thorn in my hand, a few weeks ago...plucked it out, as I always do...stuck a band aid on it, and forgot all about it , until the "red streak" started running up my finger !  So, Doctor visit, and , as you say, some "high octane" drugs !

It's closer for me.  I leave Sunday on my Phenix 10 day on the Excel!  I'll be back before you go with some tips on what worked... and didn't.  Keep taking those antibiotics Lee!

 Have a safe and productive trip Mark.

The bottom of my boots always have some kind of manure on them, this time it was chicken.  The nail was a ring nail too.

These are the nails that you should have been dealing with:



...nail knots that is.

100 lb hollow core connection on the 100 lb Izorline mono top shot side.

Two "nubs," about 1.75" apart, with nail knots to "lock" down the hollow core. Two consecutive nail knots on the hollow core tag end.

Same configuration on the opposite end of the hollow core to the 100 lb ProSpec Metered.

TWELVE nail knots total. Glue on all as the last step.

I'm happy for you for going on the SOA.

Easy does it.

I have been on 4 different oral antibiotics and 3 IV ones over the last 2 weeks, healing but not "feeling better".  I am currently on only 2 oral ones but still feel like crap from them.
