    hoytedow Fly on the Wall - Miss ddt yet?

    It was a little chilly at night but the sleeping bag kept me comfortable. In the morning the no see 'ums were trapped by the hundreds by condensation along the underside of the tent top over my head. The screen openings were not enough to stop them from coming in. 40% Deet aerosol kept most bugs from biting me but I had about 8 sand fly bites. I killed one deer fly on my arm before he got me. Deet is good stuff. As I write this it is 51 degrees F outside in West Central Florida.

    Teotwawki may soon become a planter. :(

    It should make a good one, with seats at each end.

    Angel, where is your post re: zones? I don't see it. Thanks, Phil, for the plant hardiness map.

    I think the hulls would look good with a bunch of banana plants growing out of it.

    Part of the hull is being made into a new helm box for the skiff.

    I am adding new thwarts to the skiff made from the cross beams of TEOTWAWKI. Only one hull remains. It serves as a bench for the time being.

    Is that Peanut I see in the helm box photo?
