[RC] Spiders - Stephanie_D_Adair

Thanks for the clarification of those nasty things!  I was reading the
posts scratching my head, having been a resident of Florida and Texas, and
I thought we were all talking about the same spider.  Now that I saw the
picture, yup, hit those more than once in both states.  I'm with Dawn, HATE
'EM!  They are hard to see when your in thick woods, just see it and blam!
you're in it.  (Whoa!  Whoa when I say WHOA! dangit! You can stop and spin
like a Quarter Horse when YOU want to!  How about when I want you to! )  I
mean, you see the web, see the spider, then the web is on you.  And its
really creepy because you never FIND THE SPIDER.  Ride for an entire hour
with your skin crawling, swatting at every imaginary "touch", just to find
it's your own clothing, hair, breeze, or just nothing at

<<In reference to:
Now riding down here in the tropics - especially in the late summer when
the banana spiders are carrying their eggs and bulking up for the winter

Texas has a lot of those too.  The real name for them is Golden Silk


The females are about 3 inches across...  I always tried to be second in
when I rode in Texas.
