Ultimate Bug Protection?

I am trying to figure out what would be a workable system in case I do not make a camp site traveling the Everglades Waterway. My biggest enemy will not be the Alligators or the Pythons. It is the insects that will drive you mad!!! If I must I can get a few hours of shut eye right in the boats cockpit. Tie off to a mangrove and wait for tides or winds to change.

Getting equipment ready for the EC

A WaterTribe Challenge involves both physical and mental preparation.

I have to go over my gear to a point where the boat becomes a extension of my body.

EC Practice to Thimble Shoal Light

With the Watertribe Everglades Challenge getting near I went out today to put on some practice miles. The weather was warm with very little wind.

My destination was the Thimble Shoals Light House. The total distance was 26nM.
