Don’t bug me

We have been scrambling these past few weeks to prepare everything we need for the trail.  Today we finally had the opportunity to treat our clothes with permethrin.  This is a chemical spray that binds to fabric and helps repel bugs like mosquitoes and ticks and will last through a handful of washings.  This is a terrific option for folks who don’t want to douse their skin with bug spray on a daily basis.  We will still bring some deet spray, but only as a backup for particularly buggy evenings.
