Hi Lynn, an fyi for motion sickness: ginger has been shown to be more effective at controlling nausea, including that of motion sickness, than the leading anti-motion-sickness over-the-counter medicine. One of the meds I take has nausea as a side effect, so I've consumed a lot of ginger over the past few years. the best form, if you can get there to get it, is when it's been made into a chewable toffee-like candy, sold at Honey-Tree and other natural foods places. I think the brand name is "The Ginger People". Besides it being better, it has no sleepy side effects like the medicines can have. If you're going in a boat, I'd have something along unless you know that you aren't subject to motion sickness. Even if it's just ginger soda (not ordinary ginger-ail, but the kind you can buy at New Leaf or specialty foods which is made with lots of ginger). I'd wear shorts if I were you, old shoes you don't mind getting really dirty, and I'd apply sunscreen every hour (I know that sounds like a lot, but some governmental agency just came out with a report that says the claims for water-proof sunscreens just aren't true). hth, Chip ------------------------------ Chip Orange Database Administrator Florida Public Service Commission Chip.Orange@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (850) 413-6314 (Any opinions expressed are solely those of the author and do not necessarily reflect those of the Florida Public Service Commission.)Check out the TABI resource web page at http://acorange.home.comcast.net/TABI-----Original Message----- From: tabi-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:tabi-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Lynn Evans Sent: Monday, June 08, 2009 3:38 PM To: tabi@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [tabi] Angler's weekend WITH FDOA I will be going fishing with the FDOA this coming Saturday.
