A friend of mine just returned from an Alaska road trip. He said that the mosquitoes were nothing short of TOTALLY UNBELIEVABLE !

YES, tell all your friends NOT to go. It's TERRIBLE up here, nothing but rain, mosquitos, crappy roads, reality shows, and terrible drivers NOT worth the trip................

They sell teeny tiny bear traps labeled as mosquito traps. That's a good clue right there.......

Oh Horse Poo. The mosquitos don't even bite up there...They would rather carry you off to the den and eat you whole!

A lot worse are the Black Flies. We went to go fly fishing and they were so bad wouldn't even go out until they all died seemingly overnight. One day they'd eat you alive and the next it was like they had never existed.

Or was that look THEN leap?
