    Has anyone been camping in the "near north"?
    We're heading to Killbear in a few days and wondering how bad the bugs might be. They are horrible around us right now thanks to the cool damp spring. We can't do any yardwork without bugspray.
    Just wondering if we need to try to borrow a dining tent or come up with another plan for bug control.

    Especially with the wet, cool spring we've had and are still enduring my bet is you'll get eaten alive - sorry, but that's life in the near north until summer heat has had time to burn 'em off. Here's an interesting read on the subject from Algonquin Park.

    Just spent a night on St Nora Lake in Ontario, north of Minden. Bugs were the worst I can remember in many years. We were confined to our Mantis bug tarp/tent.
