Why wasn't it a good year? I have heard of the decline in honeybees and hate to see this. :(

We are having some cooler weather after 90s for a few days- which was too hot for my taste. :)

A neighbor across the road had honey bees. A few years ago I unknowingly walked into a swarm and thought Oh boy, this is it. :( But they weren't the least interested in me and I just kept walking.

Their has been a decline in them in the last decade or so. I've not done too much research into it so can not tell you much about it. Usually as long as you don't swat at them or bother their hive to much you won't get stung. It also depends on the species they are too. The Italian ones are pretty docile but the Black Russians are very temperamental to say the least.

I agree with you B much more then 75 and it's too hot for me

Great I went camping !
Did you know outside is full of dirt ? Its every where.
When I Put my cloths in the wash the water was really brown.

I'm glad I got short hair for the trip because it would have been a real mess if it had been long.

Did you camp in a tent? What else did you do when you camped?

Well I hiked around got lost found our way again before getting lost again then threw dumb luck ended up where we wanted to go. this happed every day ...it was to cold or to hot, it rained on me, my very yellow rain jacket was at the bottom of my pack so I got wet while wearing my tee shirt which was embarrassing. Decided that putting my rain jacket at the very top of the pack might be a good idea.
fed mosquitoes.

I had a small bivy tent with me.

It doesn't sound like much fun. Would you do it again?
