Poison ivy produces urushiol to protect the plant from herbivores. In humans this chemical produces an allergic skin rash, known as urushiol-induced contact dermatitis. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Visual Description:  The hikers’ big dilemma.

SHAST  =  STASH,  DOORE  =  RODEO,  DITNIC  =  INDICT,  CATILI  =  ITALIC   —   Giving us:  SSHROEINDIAC

Clue/Question:  Choosing to take the shortcut through the poison ivy was . . .

Answer:  A RASH DECISION

(Poison ivy is no fun!  When I was a kid, it never seemed to affect me.  But, when I was in my late twenties I was clearing these vines from some weed trees that were growing on our property.  I was wrapping those suckers around my wrists, trying to pull them out of the upper branches.  Of course, they cut into my skin.  I was very successful!  But, a couple of days later . . . Whoa, Nellie!  Ever since then, all I have to do is pass by it and I seem to break out.  Almost always on my wrists and forearms, too!

Some good jumbles, today.  I liked “italic”, and it looks like “stash” is new.  So, it looks like ralis95 has more updating to do.  Excellent answer letter layout!  Beautifully cryptic, Mr. Hoyt.  Nice cartoon, Mr. Knurek.  Leaves of three, let them be!  Right?  Don’t think you’re immune, folks.  Enough exposure, and you’ll experience that unique sensation yourself.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Poison ivy gives me fits too, and I still don’t recognize it! Grand puzzle!
