My bags are packed I am ready to go!!!

Oh my, where to start.

I found a HUGE ugly spider that I have trapped and put in a shot glass for further examination. I am really scared because I found it on top of a stack of clean clothes and all the research I have done it appears to be a Hobo Spider THAT IS POISONOUS!!!!

Spiders gross me out. Obviously not enough to not catch it and torment it (lets face it I have 3 brothers so I have a keen skill for observations of gross stuff!)
I have preserved it and looked up local "termination" places to see if they can figure out what kind of spider it is, because if it is POISONOUS we need to bugbomb.

here it is in all its glory. I think it liked that I am afraid of it. It even posed for pictures...EEWWW see what I mean.. So gross!! And see how BIG he is?? He takes up the WHOLE bottom of the shot glass!!

Oh and did you know Brown Recluse, and Wolf spiders mate in May, and June.. Yep so chances this big nasty spider is what I think it is gives me the gebbies!!

So needless to say I did not sleep last night. Nope every hair that touched me I jumped up flicked in the lights to make sure the "mate" was not trying to find the one I have tucked away in a shot glass.

Fucking hell!!

Oh and I am packed. All my "to do" list has been done!!! Less than 24 hours!!! EEKKK

I hate spiders too and that thing is huge, hopefully it doesn't have a mate. Have fun on your trip.

I thought it was a huntsman to start with.. which is from oz and isn't poisonous, but looking further, it isn't hairy enough.

Once again...
