We just got off the river yesterday. Friday night (7/22) we camped at Banjo. It has now been officially renamed Mosquito Bay. Everyone became raw chum for these bandits. In the morning people were popping the sneaky bastards that had snuck in their tents the night before like zits on a wall. Even with Deet and other repellents, there were people that look like their whole back was covered in a rash.
That being said, Saturday night at Mee 3 was on the pleasant side with mosquitoes that were respectful enough to stay away after we applied the Deet.
