Has anyone out there recently come back from the Grand?

I'm heading down to Phantom in a couple of days, and I wonder if anyone who has recently been on the river might have some info on active stinging insect nests/hives at camps or lunch spots. I'm allergic to wasps, bees, hornets, fire ants and the like, and although I have epi's and drugs and an eye out for those little assassins, it's always good to have a heads up on where they might be hanging out. Aside from wearing a tyvek suit , beta is one of my best defenses. If you have recently returned and remember seeing any areas that were particularly pesky, would you post here and let me know what sites to avoid? Thanks!!

Just off the rio monday morning and still trying to deal with re-entry...No bugs of note were seen this time , but could be that it was a little early in the season yet....Good luck and keep an eye open for them. The flowers down low are beginning to show, you should have a lovely float. If you've been down before, you'll notice lots of beaches have considerably less sand this year....Keep the bottom side down !!
