I think I had posted in another thread that my skin is a magnet for mosquitoes. That’s my main problem when going on a camping trip that’s why I always have the Off lotion for the insect repellent. But the bonfire is one good way of driving away the mosquitoes. Especially on a cold night in the wilderness, a bonfire is good to give you warmth and at the same time discourage the mosquitoes and other insects as well. And as s bonus, isn’t it nice to be telling stories in front of a bonfire?
