RV Bug Off Bag

In bushcraft and survival circles you frequently encounter references to bug out bags and bug in bags. Gary and I recently added our own term for camping: Bug Off Bag.

Our past week was filled with rain and hordes of mosquitoes. The blood-suckers were what made us build our bug off bag.

We used generous applications of all of the products so that the mosquitoes would not build up a tolerance while we were there. We shouldn’t have worried because they were already immune. Nothing stopped them, so I guess it’s back to the drawing board.
