What? Maybe under a full moon you'd notice the difference.

Doesn't anyone enjoy sleeping under the stars anymore? You'll only
catch me in a tent during the winter. Looking up in "the big sky"
while snug in my sleeping bag is part of the love of being outdoors
for me.

But I can offer you some advice. I have a yellow Bibler that I have
used once or twice in the summer, when my wife comes along, that
attracts lots of curious bees during the day. I've been told that it's
impossible to take a nap during the day with so much buzzing going
on. I've also heard that the lime-green color also attracts the bees.
