This is one of the worst years we have experienced in terms of gnats, probably because of all of the rain and flooding. Any time spent outside becomes a flurry of swatting, waving hands, slapping and misery. Luckily, a few years ago I came upon the best recipe for gnat repellent that we have ever tried. This stuff really works! At last weekend’s Galena Adventure Ride, Dale shared some of our concoction with others at the campground where many were staying. It was a huge hit, so I thought I would share the very simple recipe. A little dab of this run through your hair and around your face and the pests really do leave you alone. So, here it is:
1 part Dettol (an antiseptic that I usually have to order online as you can’t find it in US stores)
1 part baby oil
That’s it! So simple and so effective. I make up bottles for friends and family and everyone raves about how well it works. So, give it a try, and let us know what you think.
We are so pleased to announce the very first winner of the Driftless Challenge! Nat sent us this picture of the VFW helicopter on the Maiden Rock Route. Awesome pic Nat! Thanks to all who entered May’s contest. Keep those pics coming as we begin the June contest tomorrow!!
Happy Monday everyone! Just a quick note to remind you that we have a page on the website dedicated to rider submitted photos and videos.
