I play with long Pants in summer now though I had played shorts putting it on before.
Because when entering the bush, it defends from the accomplishment, and it becomes an insect repellent.
How about you?
shorts and I have acquired the scratches & gouges to prove it. there are some courses in SE MI (Willow is the worst) where you can easily tell how well someone was driving by looking at the damage to their arms/legs. if I were more allergic to poison ivy or bug bites, I probably would go over to long trousers.
I understand it is very hard to translate from Japanese to English here on DGRUs. And I can understand what you say. But it really comes out looking funny on the printed page. I really enjoy trying to figure out what it is you are driving at and I mean no disrespect. Like your discussion question. You started wearing long trousers instead of shorts because of poisen ivy and insects. Throw out alot of the unnecesary words and your discussion comes out loud and clear.
Probably a good idea. Building Fort Custer for Worlds '08. I wore shorts all the time and got a bad case of poisen ivy rashes and ticks were a problem. Not to mention the mosquitos. I may have to try your idea out if I can find a pair long pants that are light and breathable.
Does my answer to your discussion come out funny on your computer?
I tend to ware shorts, I try to stay as cool as possible on those hot summer rounds, but if the bugs are real bad I'll ware long socks to keep them off. 99.999% of the time I ware shorts that is until the snow flies then its pants.
I like to wear shorts when the temp is above 40 F, but have paid the price. As a flicker/straddle putter, I find long pants annoying.
I will wear long pants when doing maintenance on the course (weed whips, razberries). When I disc in the winter (we have about 3 feet of snow on the ground) I wear gaitors over my pant legs. Those are money!
Except in Winter it's shorts. I have yet to find a pair of long pants which are not too warm for the summer.
On courses with long rough (so most courses) I wear long socks (soccer socks work best). Long socks may look weird but they do a good job of protecting legs from the underbrush.
When the underbrush is long, scratchy and/or wet I hate short socks. Long, scratchy and wet really sucks. There are times when your drive ends up in briars or thistle and without long socks you are donating skin just getting to the disc. The worst is when you are searching for someone else's shank in the briar patches. If it is your own poor shot then at least you are being punished for your own mistake and deserve the abuse.
Last summer I was on the Discraft private course in Holly , Michigan. On hole #2 there is a big patch of nasty, thorny things which look like raspberry bushes. This patch is so thick it is hard to penetrate even with care and patience. I deposited my favorite driver into the middle of this patch on a poor drive. So in I went, as carefully as I could and eventually took a stance and threw out.
Upon leaving I noticed that the misquotes were swarming so I took out bug repellent and sprayed down. It was then I realized that this particular bug juice stung like heck on any open cut and I must have had a hundred fresh cuts on each leg. I believe that was the first and last time I wore short socks on that course.
