I never paid much attention to Mosquitoes as a kid in Missouri. Sure I got bit sometimes, but they never seemed to be too big a problem. When I got to young adulthood and starting doing wilderness stuff in a broader area (southern Missouri, northern Arkansas, southern Illinois, western Kentucky, central Tennessee, and then eventually all of Tennessee, northern Alabama, and northern Georgia) I did start to notice them more.

I'd say the rule in that large area I just described is: mosquitoes go wherever they want, though true, on hilltops without much vegetation to break the wind, they might seem more scarce, but I doubt it is because they "don't go there:" they're following your CO2 trail to get a bite of blood . . . hmm, similar to some political parties . . . but then they get caught on a breeze and windup way off course at which point they either find something/someone else to parasitize for a meal or they die.

The first time I went out to the Sierra's I learned how different true alpine conditions can be. At that point, I had probably spent several thousand hours of my life engaged in wilderness activities, either underground or on the surface, so between that and studying the maps I was pretty confident I knew what I was doing. My wife and I had done a few day hikes in Yosemite valley area and we were heading up to Tuolomne (which was way too much elevation gain without some acclimatization, but that is a different story). An older fellow who noticed our gear chatted us up and asked us where our mosquito netting and hats were. Luckily I had the humility to hear him out when he warned that "You REALLY want to have wide-brim hats and mosquito netting for your head" (as well as long sleeves which we had covered already). I forget exactly what we did, but there was a shop that sold gear-probably back in Yo Valley-and we luckily had one last trip back there before we headed up to high elevations.

Lucky thing too, because going to high elevations (like Vogelsang Pass where we were headed, in the Sierras you find there are about 10-times as many mosquitos higher up than there are lower down!

Indeed Kamo needs work, but the the outback where he lives in, nothing is available. :(

And I wouldn't describe myself sulky, grumpy is more to the point. But Old Grumpy is already reserved for OE, like Old Crusader is for Andy. ;)

And the Old Sniper is just for you. :lol:

So, according to the recent press conference ,Trump and Netanyahu told us that a one-state solution (meaning a Jewish State only) is an option we should consider.

Now imagine the reactions if the Palestinian PM was saying something close to what Hamas says...

Something along the line "A one-(Palestinian) state solution is an option we should consider."

Next day, the press would have the following headlines

" Palestinian PM is not sure if Israel has a right to exist"

"Palestinians do not exclude a Jewish genocide"

" Palestinian Prime Minister is siding with Hamas extremists"

"Palestinians do not want peace"

the list goes on...

The "Palestinians" have never considered anything else other than a one state solution and genocide.

Funny that Hamas is a monster created by Israel, to undermine secular Fatah and Arafat. ;)

What Anthro says. I the summer in the Sierras you can absolutely get massive swarms of mosquitos even above 10,000 feet.

The minute you stop or the breeze stops they will be on you like vultures. I was fly-fishing for golden trout above Saddlebag Lake (near Tioga Pass) at over 11,000 feet and got bit so bad I had to retreat. I had a hat, long sleeves, neck cover and about 1 gallon of DEET and the little f****** got under my sunglasses and sucked all the blood out of my temporal arteries. There was still snow on the ground too.
