First off, please forgive me if this has been covered, I did a search on this board and came up empty!
I live in Louisiana and only average a few days per year of mosquito free weather. If you have never overnighted in this part of the country, the bugs around here can be tough, even when covered in bug juice!
I have been toying with the idea of sewing one half of a plastic/nylon zipper around the peremimeter of a silnylon tarp and the other half to a bug net. I almost always set my tarp in an "A-frame" style setup and would cut the net so that it would be long enough to lay my floor tarp on top of it after setting up the roof. The netting and zipper would only add about 8 or 9 ounces to my pack!
Does this sound like an idea that would work, or am I just wizzing into the wind?
