so you got bit too Tony? you saw my blisters... they left scars and i'd really like to know what insect did it... the only horsefly bite i ever saw left a long gash, which is why i didnt think it was horsefly... my hammock and tarp were tied to a tree that had big ants ascending, so i wondered if it was them getting all territorial :/ i'll google Eurax cream... I also wondered if it was because i had a higher amount of sugar in my blood, making me a tasty option... I also wondered if it was because of the dip i was camping in with lots of leaves (don't remember the correct term for that)... This next moot, i shall have less sugar in my blood and will keep my eyes peeled... will probably hang my hammock on firm ground too, see if all that makes a difference.
