Seriously, it works
Avon Skin so Soft worked for me during my days on Mountain rescue up there, and the farmers around Ballachullish and Loch Ewe have the best skin in Scotland :lol:

Cheaper versions are also available down to about 5 quid.

Piccy taken wild camping down Glen Etive, chopping wood for the fire with an axe head I found. It might be from the old (colonial) Wars ? Anyway I've stored it under a bridge for next year ;)

Enjoy your trip, hope you're lucky and the weather holds. cheers Mul.

p.s. Skin So Soft works for me too. I always double it up with jungle formula too.

p.p.s. Tent inners are good at keeping the blighters in as well as out - how do I know ... doh ?

chemist told my mrs to start taking a daily garlic capsule a week before and during camping.

any good? or are you just going to attract gourmet mozzies?

re; tent inners keeping the bugs in, true. i always give my tent a shot of RAID before bedtime
