I really like the sound of all the different types of shelters everyone here discusses, but, how does everyone deal with the hordes of chiggers, ticks, and mosquitoes? Here in kansas, I am afraid that I might not be able to handle a tent without a floor in the spring and summer. The weeds here can be well over waist high. I can't tell you how many chiggers you can get walking just a short distance. Please tell me your solutions?

Solution B: Flamethrower??

Get a product called "Neutrapel." It is based on the citronela plant and keeps all bugs away. Or get a "bug suit" that keeps them off from you. Then get out in the weeds and enjoy yourself and forget about the bugs. Good luck Sam.
