#1 Rule: Do not Partake by Rees Lake.

I would try to camp in a shaded place like by River Road or Rees lake. A lot of field camping, but take a compass because you do not want the sun blazzing in your tent at 6:30 a.m. after you went to bed at 3 a.m. It will be hot as s#%t by 8 a.m. so a shaded place will help lots...

You can buy ice there if you run out but essentials are:

Bugspray w. deet (mosquito's, chiggers, ticks)
Sunscreen and REAPPLY & Hat (It will be BRIGHT )
Lots & Lots of water.

You should be fine. A daily dip in the Suwanee River will help too. I usually buy some environmentally safe soap form REI or the Army Navy store. You are going to sweat all day so it is nice to clean up.


what goes on by rees lake?

Skeeters aren't so bad; give them what they want and they will leave you alone. What you really need to look out for are the flying Sturgeon. If you get hit with one of those it's gonna leave a mark. :o

He means Rees Lake area is where the undercover cops like to go to shoot fish in a barrel.

I think the best advice for the mosquitoes is to use insect repellant AT ALL TIMES. Dont wait until you start getting bitten, and dont even think about being outside after dark without spraying! They make some stuff that has a very high concentration of deet and comes in a small vial with a spray nozzle that you can easily fit in your pocket, I think its made by OFF and If anyone wants I can confirm it tonight when I get home. I plan on keeping one with me at all times! If you sweat alot or if rains or you decide to take a dip, you will have it with you to reaply. Those things are relentless and will attack if you dont spray, especially you ladies with the sweet perfumes. Its gonna be bad enough being hot and sweaty, I dont want to be itchy too!

Kujobie, if you have one of those bug zapper lights bring it. We can hang it in camp and watch the sparks fly :D


I do have one. I think you gave it to me. I'll bring it, but those woods skeeters are probably too big to fit thru the bars! :D

I don't know about the mosquitoes but it sure keeps me away. I hate that stuff! I'd rather breathe diesel fumes. Besides, wookies are drenched in the stuff!

Yeah. It repels many things. Haha. Just thought I would throw it out there for those worried about these Florida skeeters.
