It's been more than 24 hours since the wasp encounter and I have to tell you I'm alive and well.
The first 6 to 8 hours the stings hurt like hell. Then the next 6 hours or so they just stung. After that I was asleep so I don't know what they felt like.
This morning the spots were tender if I touched them, but most, if not all, the pain was gone. I can only imagine what it would have been like had I not had on as much clothing as I did.
I'm also thankful I'm not allergic to the stings because I was by myself, out in the middle of nowhere, and it would have been a much bigger problem.
So, thanks everybody I fine. Oh, the hands are OK too.
