    thought it was banned? is that the same stuff the mod used in the 70s/80s? if you put it on your forehead and the sweat ran into your eyes it burned like ****!! and was found to be a carsonagenic? if so ile have some of that!! the old stuff works best! just look at fly spray nowadays,spray it on the fly and it laughs at you!! may aswell hit it with the can health and safety dont you just love it!!!!!

    Made by a leading cosmetics company if i remember right, it never kept the mossy eating you either, just glad i never had nylon webbing then, it would have melted the kit big time ,it use to melt the eye pieces on the binos, no wonder ive had cancer twice with some of the crap that ive had to use .

    That's when i really started smoking. When i asked my father for advice after getting my orders for Belize, he just shook his head and later handed me a tupperware container full of cheap cigars. The only thing to keep the critters off.

    Jesus...u remember the Fer de lence snakes? Locals call them Tommy Gofs - those buggers were nasty! We had one guy get bitten with one of them a then another guy was bitten when a jumping viper came in one night. Didn't matter how desperate you were for a piss, if you could do it from your hammock then u just held on.

    Avon - Skin So Soft bath oil and a midge hood.
    Apply the oil every couple of hours.
    Or
    Smoke a pipe!
