Dear Kenneth,
This is not a Vinegaroon.  It is a predatory Solifugid, sometimes called a Sun Spider or Wind Scorpion, but unlike both Spiders and Scorpions, Solifugids have no venom and pose no threat to humans, though large individuals including Camel Spiders from the Middle East, might deliver a painful bite that draws blood.  The much smaller North American Solifugids pose no threat to humans.
