Very well written, Klaus!

Certainly, fall/winter is much milder in GA than in other areas, but I have
done some of my best collecting in the cold. In fact, this time last year I
didn't even own a pair of waders, but that didn't stop me. Although I don't
recommend this method (for safety reasons), I put large, double-thickness
trash bags over each leg and tied the tops to my belt. It looked really
goofy, but it worked for awhile. Eventually, they do tear and leak, so you
don't want to be too far from your car and dry clothes. I really hate cold
weather (one of the reasons I live in GA!), but at least all the snakes and
bugs are asleep.
