    Yellowstone back country trip

    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.

    Sounds great! I bet that was a real adventure! Sorry about the KOA, that's a bummer.

    10% Permethrin, undiluted? I bet that worked, but you might do just as well using the recommended dilution of 20-1 for 0.5%. Plus treat all your clothes next time, you won't need near as much DEET.

    DEET poisoning? Wow, that sounds awful. You might consider swithching to 20% Picaridin. I have never noticed any kind of noxious experience like I do with DEET, and work GREAT for me, ESPECIALLY with Permethrin treated clothes.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    Yeah I used the sawyer permethrin 10% I am thinking of getting some 36.8% permetherin and diluting it to .5% so I barely have to use permetherin. I have a bigger background in chemistry then most kids my age I will have to whip up some Permethrin and treat all my clothing that I use for camping. My next big trip will probably be in the uintas.

    Yeah man I love the Uintas! I have camped at a place called Christmas Meadows and at a lake below ( west of ) Dead Horse Pass. But I was on the ground in those days. Some day I'll get back in a hammock. But hey, by the time you get up to the Uintas, you are not that far from the Wind Rivers in WY. Now there is a place I have used a hammock in! Yeah baby!

    I live in American Fork, UT so I am just about an hour or hour and half from the uintas I am thinking of training to do the high line trail in about 1 week. I need to get a bit more in shape. Canoeing I can handle but for some strange reason I get really weakened with backpacking. I love wilderness camping all other campsites make me just shake my head in pity for anyone who camps there. I am yearning for the back country even now and I just got back. Man I love the wilderness I love the fact that nature if it wanted to, it could squish you flat. Oh man I miss back country it is how national parks should be ran but alas stupid pepole have to be pandered by campsites with showers, fire pits , no worry for wildlife making life miserable. Now days campsites are like outdoor hotels that is why I hate KOA's, camping trailers and giant tents with a passion. The point of camping is to make it a challenge to survive not to make it an outdoor hotel. I saw the stars at 10 pm in the back country at the KOA I had to wait till 12 because of light pollution. Campsites are spoiled and it is so annoying.

    Great report and pictures ninja; a lot of those Yellowstone spots sure do look familiar!

    Just a friendly reminder, the saying around here is HYOH. I've met and hung with plenty of other folks who are perfectly content to stay close to amenities offered at established campgrounds, and who are far from stupid. They're usually quite friendly and almost always like-minded: just good folks enjoying our beautiful parks in their own quiet, respectful way. I certainly understand your love of the backcountry and get out there as often as I can myself, but remember that some folks just aren't able or willing to trek deep into the piney woods. I'm sure you meant no harm.

    I can also honestly say that I've met more than my fair share of obnoxious jackholes in the backcountry, and am never surprised at the amount of trash I pick up out there. More often than not, it's left behind by some unthinking kids who are out loudly enjoying nature on some big group trip.

    And whomever tossed the water bottle into that hot spring should be drawn and quartered and fed to the Mollies.
    Simplicity in all things is the secret of the wilderness and one of its most valuable lessons. I think the matter of simplicity goes further than just food, equipment, and unnecessary gadgets; it goes into the matter of thoughts and objectives as well. When in the wilds, we must not carry our problems with us or the joy is lost. -Sigurd Olson

    Geez, I remember KOA from when my grandparents and I went Airstreaming up that way about 40 years ago. Can't imagine staying in one now - the horror!

    KOA was started and their headquarters are still right here in Billings, MT, about 2 blocks from my house. Not sure if that's a good thing. LOL
