Angela Maxwell Is Walking Around the World for Women

On May 2, 2014, with $12,000 saved, Angela Maxwell left her best friend’s home in Bend, Oregon, to start a five-year walk around the world. There’s no pre-approved path for the small ranks of pedestrian circumnavigators, the dozen or so people who’ve claimed they’ve walked around the world —so Maxwell devised her own route. She traveled the 175 miles to Portland, and then across western Australia. She next headed to Vietnam, where she hiked 60 miles from Da Nang to Hue and then spent three weeks recovering from dengue fever. A year into her circumnavigation, she arrived in Mongolia. One night, a two weeks’ hike from Mongolia’s capital city of Ulaanbaatar, in a valley surrounded by mountains, a stranger entered her tent and raped her. “It was the moment that every woman is afraid of before they go out into the world,” the 37-year-old former business consultant says. After the attack—“it was over in minutes,” Maxwell says—her assailant left. Maxwell packed her gear, hiked a few miles

Question: Is it safe to use expired mosquito spray?

I’m sorry if this doesn’t fit here. I can’t think of any other subreddit that would have an answer for this.

So I used expired mosquito spray, the Coleman brand. I didn’t even realize my mistake until after I had put it on. If it was just a couple years old, I wouldn’t be concerned, but this particular spray from is from our camping gear from over a decade ago. It smelled fine when I first put it on, but now it kind of has a cold spaghettios smell to it. It’s also sitting on top of my skin. It’s mostly dry, but it feels like I put sticky oil all over my skin. Am I going to get like some kind of messed up all-over rash from this? For what it’s worth, I am aware that I am a dumbass lol.
