I have been having a war with wasps.  So far, WDH 4, wasps 0.

There has been a development.  Was messing with the edger yesterday. 

WDH 4, wasps 3.

I tried to talk to them, but they would not listen.  Too busy stinging me.

Ya!! What is it with them ornery S.O.B.s? Usually you gotta rile them to get a stinging but lately they just fly on over and sting me for poops and giggles...

Which one of you guys swapped my nice laid-back wasps for your mean s.o.b.s?

She just kept drilling.

I.f.a.k. in the truck. One hand tourniquet with my wedges. Also augmented kit with a road flare, seatbelt cutter. I cut in a very rural area,helicopter's are pretty common way of getting to the hospital, figured the flare might help bring in the chopper.

If you are that remote, consider an EPRB. Set it off and it reports your GPS position to a satellite, and gives the rescue chopper your location to within a few feet.

And yes, where I live there are places that are 2 hours by road to a hospital, ONCE the ambulance gets there. If an EPRB goes off out in the hills, they just send the chopper as first response.
