ello all,

I am moving to Bend just after July and am looking forward to exploring some new trails I hear great things about Bend.

What is the poison Ivy/oak situation like on the trails. Here is CA we have a ton of it and I unfortunately and very susceptable to getting it.

Almost always come home with some when we hit the single tracks.

Heres to hoping the situation is better up north.

thanks

The mosquitos I have found are the worse thing in Bend in middle of summer. They seem to eat you alive no matter how much Off you wear. Maybe that was a bad year? Anyways, go early in the morning or something. They don't seem to be a problem in the city, just in the mountains and by the river.

In town the mosquitoes aren't bad. Just near water, and just for a limited time.
