    Steve. Thats my left leg from breathing in sandy soil dust with fungal spores. I have pics that are even worse. Blastomycosis put 6 wounds on my body and is in my lungs.
    Its worse in wisconsin.
    I was saying WTF? for 6 months, took about 800 pills that did nothing until I finally got a diagnostic. I am trying to educate people that there are more dangers out there besides hitting a tree and breaking your collarbone.

    I haven't been paying attention. You got this from riding a dirt bike in the sand?

    My phone is slow.
    I am trying to bump my complete story.
    I got it from grooming my trails with the tractor and a yard rake. Also when I took polaris ranger through a swampy trail. Both these times I felt a tingling burning in my sinus intake. A bike or group of bikes would be even more effective on inhaling this dust.

    The sand is not the enemy, it just the transmission delivery method on getting fungal spores airborne and into your lungs. This is toxic and spreads in your body. The body has many lymph nodes which filter this out and push it to the skin surface in a nasty ulcer which doesn't heal.

    I used some bondo on my leg, sanded it down, and gave it a repaint.
    Looks real good now.

    XC skate skiing was perfect. You missed a good time Mr Smudge.

    I'm going to the homebrew shop in St.Charles to get stuff to make a barley wine. Lots more fun.

    I hope you'll post up about the process. I've had a 5 gal homebrew kit for 20 years and never used it. Not confident enough to jump into an all grain brew, but felt like a cop out using extracts, so I compromised and did nothing. I'm thinking hard cider might be more my speed.

    I drove to get groceries this morning. Then looked at my bike in the basement when I went out back to get firewood. Maybe one day I'll ride again. One day.
