    Starting this week, they can add fly-bitten to the weary and burdened. :)

    The tent would provide good respite and would give one time to ponder God's true purpose with respect to the creation of deer flies. :)

    Very thoughtful; might have been even more so without the donation canisters on the table. Just sayin' ;)

    If we could figure his purpose in creating Deer Flies it mat well explain Smilax as well.

    At least Smilax is good for trail nibbles on a hot Memorial Day Weekend :)

    Oh Ye of little faith ! They could very well be citronella candles or butt buckets. Or for me, a spittoon would be a nice amenity. :)

    Of course, a spittoon!!! How silly of me. A little tobaccy juice to keep the flies away. The Lord moves in mysterious ways.

    I used this stuff in Maine when I was a kid. It made you smell like a heavily creosoted telephone pole. I think it actually worked too.

    Chug enough of this and you won't care about the bites, until you wake up ;) or sip apple cider vinegar several times a day, eat a clove of garlic a day(start each of these a few days before you hit the woods), or rub the inside of pine branch bark all over your exposed skin. Maine is a wonderful state, during the colder months :D
