We spent the past 10 days on the road and had yet another new item added to the learning curve of Scamping.
We found a great little spot along a small creek in a township park with only electrical
hook up provided. There was water so we were able to fill our water tank, but no dump station. We considered this being in training (soft entry) for serious wilderness camping
It was relatively warm by Michigan standards so we had all the windows
and roof vents open. Actually this was the first time in the 3 years we have lived in the state I was almost up to operating temp having moved from the tropics.
We woke after a nice dark (no campground lights), quiet (no party noise), smoke free (no raging cooking fires replete with noxious smoke) night.
Surprise surprise like being home in the tropics again. A rough estimate only (no body count made nor standard biological data recorded) nearly 100 mosquitoes had filled our Scamp
Apparently while the side louvered windows
and screens are "bug" proof the rear sliding window (over the bed) has a sufficient gap even with the screen to provide mosquito entry.
We avoided smashing any of the well fed and engorged ladies* on the rat fur walls.
So another lesson learned do not use rear window in heavy mosquito areas.
* only females bite, males are plant feeders.
