I survived and the majority was slept in the hammock majority of it 2 nights when we were at KOA they did not let me use their trees so I had no way of sleeping in a hammock and I was forced to get into a tent I hated it. But when I was in the back country I slept well in a hammock. I had Permetherin 10% I was not bugged by skeeters . But when I was not in a hammock skeeters were bad. In fact I got deet poisoning and was sick for a day while it went through my system. But man I had fun.
