Swamp Rule #3: Watch out for knees!

Over the next week, when in the field I will be tackling some grasses in drying down cypress fringes. One of the things I learned the hard way in the past is to always ALWAYS watch out for cypress knees! Again, I do often get overzealous when I get into a nice spraying rhythm and sometimes this passion leads me to make bad choices when picking a path through the off-road areas I need to treat. Smaller cypress knees for these fringe areas are often hidden in dense vegetation. While funny, it does delay me. All I can say is thank goodness for winches!
