Then Sons and Daughters in law/girlfriends and my sister and her crew for dinner, watched a movie with the gals while the boys played croquet and broke a stick, flew kites, and babysat the grands... and Robbie now says papa when referring to grandpa, no words for me yet, and Baby Eli rolled over from his back to his tummy for the first time, and then repeated it twice after that! Then it was back out to the farm...came home with a bunch of eggs. Farm folks home tomorrow afternoon. So I'm catching up and pretty tuckered from all the activity today!

Colleen, very good to hear there is some interest in your S&B,
Steve, sounds like you are making tracks.
Herb, go team! don't get hoarse from screaming.
Dave, sounds like you are trucking!
Ya'll be careful now... ya hear?
Thinking about going camping locally next weekend. Not many out and if the weather is warm, would be fun. My sister usually tries to get out weekends starting in April, wonder if she is interested... too much going on to ask her today.
Sounds like a good full day for you. Thanks for the well wishes on our S&B.

Has anyone tried the electronic mosquito zappers that are out there?

We have one and it works so so at first but really well from about 10 hours of running on until taken down to go forth and further.

The one we have we paid $90 for and these shown are only $20.

Nothing beats the thermo cell. I use it hunting and I have deer walk up and blow in shara's ear. I scared the deer from Lmao. Used in the south ga swap where they are so thick they could suck you dry in a hour and I never get bit. It works the best. And yes we have the electric tennis rackets they are fun to see who can kill more mosquitoes. She wins most of the time.

Morning all Mutants near and far!

We are close to the old stomping ground and in the very spot we started our full time journey. Back on November 1 2014 we drove Bonita from storage for the last time. We're a few miles from MCD - a few from our favorite small Freightliner shop and about 20 minutes from the old hood.

We are even closer to 75 North and the sounds of freeway traffic rolling by, happy with yet another (and the same) picnic table made of splinters lol. It's nice to be in familiar territory but the rainbows pull is strong here as GC1.2 Redux grows near.

Have a great day mutants.

Bug Zapper Electronic Flying Insect Killer - Walmart.com

Have you looked around the base and below those things? Mosquitos are mostly attraced by your scent, not so much by the light. we had a bug zapper similar to that and mostly got moths and other light attracted bugs. We wuit using it. never noticed a decline in mosquitoes.

We have the tennis racket too. We use it in the s & b for flies or spiders. Actually DH uses it most of the time. It is very entertaining. LOL. I will have to get a second one for our new baby.

Our decline in mosquito population coincided with going F/T and fullfilling our primary goal of "never hot, never cold", and leaving skeeter country afore they hatch.
There ain't none in Lancaster County PA; no standing water!
K. My done gloating.
After hop-scotching for a few days, tis time for ac"ZERO" day. Brefast (w/bacon; DUH) and chillaxing.
I wish all of you STMs as much NOTHING as we will have today!

Happy it is working. I actually have not used mine yet, but I think Earlene does when she is walking Miya. I'll ask her when she comes back in. She has the pink one. (Hmm! Wonder if that matters)

There is nothing like the voice of experience. I have heard many raves on the product. I sure would have liked to have seen a video of that dear huffing in Shara's ear.

Deb, the primary ingredient is "d-cis/trans allethrin" (plus the butane for fire) so you can research how those may affect you.
