God is very, VERY Good!
(So there must be some good reason why He created mosquitoes.)

This morning I woke up in a dew-drenched sleeping bag and was summarily greeted by a zillion hungry flying pests upon exit.

I ran into my pink Poly-John refuge and spent the next 60 minutes inside reading, swatting mosquitoes and waiting for the sun to shine and the wind to blow.

It took two hours for the sun to finally clear the surrounding trees.

The wind wouldn’t begin until 10 AM on this particular morning.

The mosquitoes must have checked their weather reports also, for they were making the most of their opportunity to enjoy some half-fast food on this particular morning.

Sleeping on the ground is NOT my favorite sport, and, as usual, I didn’t.

That is, I didn’t sleep: at least not for a few minutes after cautiously shifting from side-to-side.

Hwy 34 Camping Near Gitanyow, BC

When Shawn and his three children finally arrived to give me a ride to Prince Rupert, I was more than ready, and perhaps at least a quart or two low on fluids, too!

Again, thank you, Shawn, for your kindness and for making my life much, MUCH, less filled with insects!

Along the way from Gitanyow to Prince Rupert, BC, the five of us enjoyed lunch, several hours of road closures, and some very cool DQ treats.

I also managed to take a short nap in the truck AND replenish my liquid levels for the next wave of predators.

Prince Rupert here I come!…
