I second Old NFO. Looks like you're off to a good start. Don't get cocky.

Old NFO: Thanks and the kill the ivy outfit is: rubber gloves, rubber boots, thick jeans and a long shirt. It did good during the application.

B: Yep, I'm using the special Poison Ivy Roundup and its working good so far.

Knucklehead: Thanks, and your advice has been darn good so far.
