    Sept 30th Eastern NC update: BRING REPELLENT!

    Folks, if you are camping in eastern NC, BRING REPELLENT!!!!!!!!!! Hurricane Florence left so much stagnant water, the mosquitoes are not only breeding like crazy, but I think migrating from other places like Louisiana. I have not seen mosquitoes the size that they were since I left the bayous right before Katrina. We are talking mosquitoes the size to fly away with small children.

    Scout troop went car camping, and I had on picardin, and deet based repellents, and they still kept coming. Someone brought a propane fogger, and that did the trick.

    Can't wait for cooler weather.

    Thanks for the heads up. Am planning on kayaking and hanging down east soon and normally don't carry repellant and rely on bug net, but that only works when you are in the hammock.

    The skeeters have been extra active and will remain so until we get a freeze.
