Yea, we got skeeters, but to tell the truth, they are no worse than on the gulf coast, but bad enough in both places. 
That is what they sell DEET for.
Too bad you can't make another trip up, the place is big and a guy really needs to take a year to see a big part of it, it just can't really be done in a short vacation, in my opinion.

I just a few days ago got the go ahead to start getting ready for the logging job on the coast, sooooooo I hopefully (gods willing) will be spending the summer and fall on the coast a hundred miles or so from a town or road.

Years ago an old Yooper logger said "If I saw a bear in the bush with a gun I'd shoot it!"

My wife had never seen a bear until one day about ten years ago she saw five within half mile of the house! Headed to home town with my mother saw a big bruin cross the road and run across a field. About an hour later headed the other direction taking mother to Dr. appointment they had gone less than half a mile and a big old momma with 3 cubs ran across the road! Only time I ever saw one in the woods was about 65 years ago when searching with the hired farmhand for a cow and calf, saw a momma with two cubs. I got really excited being a kid but his excitement to get out of there was way beyond mine! I donít remember finding the cow or calf that day...

That seems fair - a bear in the bush with a gun could shoot back.
The best shot wins!

Ran into this one the other day logging. She was going up the tree to get her cubs. Shed grab one and bring it down and go back up for another but the cub she brought down would climb back up behind her. I could tell she was getting irritated so headed to the other side of the property to cut for the day.
Saw you tomorrow!

Not to side track the bear thread - spring here is the local flock of wild turkeys trying to mate
