: Glad to see you got your nomenclature correct, GATLainey! I laughed right out loud when I read it.
: Seriously, SSS is useless up here. I think it attracts them. Off helps a little, Cutters is better, but Muskol is the Cadillac of insect repellents. If you can tolerate them, bug shirts or head nets are great. However, in the heat down there, you may not be able to stand them. I've never tried Citronella (sp?). Where do you find it? I'm willing to try anything. (Unfortunately my Hawkeye didn't save any bear grease from his last bear.)
Trust me, all of these suggestions will be heeded. Muskol? Cutter? Cider vinegar. I'm there. Citronella? Where can you get the oil? And if you know of where I can find a bear who would make some grease available,I'll even be there. Because it tends to ruin an evening out when you have to excuse yourself early because your limbs are covered in welts...and yes, I've been forced to go the cortisone cream and Benadryl route many times...
thanks for the suggestions! Let's see what happens...( by the way, where can you find Muskol? A sporting goods store? A hunting store?)
