First Aid / Re: Lyme disease
« on: April 25, 2014, 10:14:10 AM »
As prevention is better than cure I've been thinking of trying some of the Rovince range of clothing - It's quite expensive but probably well worth it compared to the cost of multiple visits to the quack.
Has anyone tried this Rovince clothing, & how effective does it prove to be - especially over time & multiple cleaning cycles?

On a similar subject - that of mozzie & midges - Last year I got some Nikwax Skito-Stop spray & treated my clothes with it. I was wondering if it helps against ticks too??? I still have a bottle & will be applying it to the trousers again this spring - i.e. NOW! as we are starting to get reports of massive infestations not far from here in the Highlands.
I just looked for the Skito-Stop on Google & it appears that it may have been discontinued ?????  The only product they (Nikwax) show is one with a built in sun screen & not the stuff for clothing & tents.  :-\

Thanks for the welcomes chaps! I look forward to participating & learning!
Bogyman - Deer stalking = Hunting  with rifle (for me) - Can also mean approaching to observe / photograph.
Andy - It really is all your fault!
Lyle - Here in Strathconon it's been a fantastic Easter weekend - still not a midge in sight although we expect them to arrive soon as the bats are more active this week.

Hi All
Living & deer stalking here in the Highlands, navigation is important to me & where better to keep up to date!
Thanks for pointing me at the forum Oakleaf.
I currently run MemoryMap on PC & PDA to help stop me getting lost & make a record of my movements (backed up with good ol' map & compass of course).
