I got two used wild country flex stem cams, two old sets of tele skis(with no bindings), some pieces of static rope, and some new socks for anyone that posts YouTube video of them eating a salad. I'll even pay shipping if it is a big salad. Who knows, if you put some pan seared tuna and wasabi on there you could sell it as medicinal for $50 a plate.

This reminded me of an article I read a while ago about treating allergies in very severely allergic kids:

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/10/magazine/can-a-radical-new-treatment-save-children-with-severe-allergies.html?pagewanted=all

The strategy to get rid of the allergy is to start by feeding the kids very tiny, tiny doses and then gradually increase the dose. This has to be done over a long period of time.

WRT the peanut desensitization it should be noted that one isn't something to try on your own, results may include death (like climbing), so get a doctor to help. And don't go spiking your allergic buddies' beer!

I don't much like poison oak, or rather it doesn't much like me. Keeps me away from some places I'd otherwise really like to go. I'm not willing to start eating the stuff though... I'd rather just avoid it.

Hope that immunity is real for you, and that you're able to maintain it.

Mr Way would turn a 5 min approach into an hour to avoid the stuff.

Daniel, when you told me last November at Balch camp that you are doing immunization from poison oak by eating it, I took it as you are joking 100%.
wow, I still can not fully believe that you are serious, but looks like it works..
congratulations...
