those crazy swiss

Recommended Posts

we used to do a redneck version

 

pickup a tarp and some camping equipment in a trunk or tack box.

 

sleeping on the ground is not advisable you could wake up with friends

scorpions, snakes a few bad ones , spiders,, fire ants chiggers, ticks, we even got leaches

palmetto bugs {big roaches} and no seem's oh yea sand fleas bad bed buddies

and mosquitoes that can stand flt footed and hump a humming bird

 

fishnet hammocks do not deter mosquitoes have to line it with a tarp or a blanket

that is why i carry DEET and a head net as well as long sleeve shirt and pants and gloves

and long socks i was not born stupid and I ain't natures chew toy

I carry a citronella bucket candle as well as DEET and fogger if I am fishing

or camping in one area

yes as long as your in it but try to get dressed in the morning and walk all day

some swamps and bog areas are so thick with mosquitoes or gnats and black flies

you cannot breath and they follow and swarm around you.

 

an accidental encounter with a bee hive and you won't forget it.

 

and scorpions can get into anything except a dry bag.

 

a net is great as long as it is not rough terrain they rip too easy and they are great to have

but I believe in having durable backup.

Get dressed and undressed inside your net. Why should your net rip in rough terrain? You set it up when you go to sleep, take it down when you wake up. The zip is off the ground, so long as you do periodic inspections for holes, there is no way even scorpions could get in.

 

If you're being followed by insects, spray around your net before you get in. I've used mine for years and have yet to have any problem other than hearing the whine of mosquitoes trying to get in
