[pct-l] flying, biting critters

new to the list.  hope to slackpack pct in 00 or 01...

a couple of ideas that work for me to keep the flying, biting critters

1) fabric softener sheets rubbed all over the exposed areas of the skin,
plus attached to shoes, shoulder straps, and hiking sticks.  this creates
an envelope of fragrance on and around the body that repells the

2) massive quantities of vitamin b1.  start before your hike begins.
