First night at beaver tail and they were pretty bad. We had a screened in canopy, which allowed us to be out of our tents without too much trouble from the bugs. Without that we probably would have been in tents pretty early.

Black rocks wasnt bad until dusk. Same story with the bug tent.

You just had to go there. mikesee is pretty much everything that is still right with the buzz and you calling him a troll is pretty immature. He posts interesting content and photos. Loved the 'guess this rapid' thread too. He participates. Is fairly genial and I am glad he bangs around on here, without ever having met the guy.

I agree with what he said about 'if you have to ask'....and only speculate it could have been gentler.

"I suspect...that you are an idiot." Is actually pretty offensive compared to what he said. I understand you didn't like his reply but...it's ok to put your big boy pants on...this is the interwebz.

Unlike someone paid to be here, I volunteer to do this, because I like the community and I like the Buzz. As slow and clunky and wonky as the Buzz website is it is still the place that I have met several of the best friends I have in this life. Didn't start that way, but the river has a way of bringing out the best in people and after you work and rely on someone on the river it changes things.

For some reason the interwebz doesn't bring out the best in people. So I try to temper my responses based on hoping for the good in people. So I didn't give an infraction for the 'idiot' jibe even though it goes against the name calling and personal attacks thing we try to do.

The Buzz isn't dying. It is being strangled one insult and butthurt reaction at a time. "I don't like what he said so I am picking up my marbles and going home." Grow up for Gods sake, it isn't perfect but it could be a lot worse.

And to those who consistently bitch about moderation. There isn't much unless you spam or name call. Or bring politics to the main forum.

I second this response. His job is a thankless one, and he does it well. All of the moderators do.

Bring the armor

I was there a week ago, it was 30K. They were awful at Beaver Tail as the sun dropped, but we had a Clam shelter that offered a fine refuge, bug zappers, etc. BR #4 required no such protection.
It's dropped 12K in 1 week. Mosquito incubation = 8-10 days, so they'll likely be getting even worse for awhile.

Have fun!
