I've done it once. It was more of a test-run of my new Bugsaway clothing than anything (did catch some fish too). I was happy to report my weekend was bite-free. Was like having an invisible shield all around me.

Nice! 45 reports on E-Bird, creating lots of buzz.

I never knew you could catch sardines in the park.

Just this weekend I saw dozens of birdwatchers (and you know they are boomers) tightly clustered in parking lots overlooking melted ponds to photograph Canada Geese.
Shoulder to shoulder.
For Geese.

Ribeye of the sky I've heard them called. I know we can't hunt them in Ontario, but I'd love to see the population grow to a point where this can happen. 

Probably never happen as they are too easily confused with Whoopers

If it works for you great. For us dinner is the largest meal of the day, so no we don't consume roughly equal amounts of calories at each meal. Eating patterns vary a lot between people and I personally know people who will go off for a multi day trip with pretty much nothing but a bunch of granola bars and other folks who plan gourmet meals. Overall I hear far more people saying they need 2  pre-packaged dinners per person than I do people who are fine with one.

This is where i am as well.  Two meals a day plus some gorp. Often i skip breakfast simply because i enjoy extending my fast, even while i'm tripping. Breakfast is often consumed around noon or 1pm.  And then diner is around 6pm - little to no snacking at night. My meals are as fat as i can manage without carrying any unnecessary extra weight. My lifestyle is keto and my body has been in ketosis (running off ketones [fat] as apposed to glycogen [sugars] for fuel and energy) for awhile now. Although I have no issues suspending this "diet" temporarily, i try to remain as focused as possible, even when vacationing or tripping throughout APP. Ive manged some very interesting meals that keep me fueled and alert and i'm rarely hungry - even with all the calories burned while portaging and paddling.

But the bottom line here is, dehydrate your own meals if you want proper nutrition and low sodium.

I have the Sunset. Weighs more than my tent but it's worth it. I use it while watching the kid's baseball, hockey, and basketball also. Real back saver.  Also use it in my treestand during deer season.

I follow the directions and it works great. Why would I want pesticide on the inside of my clothing? The bugs dont come anywhere near me. That's pretty effective. But please, continue to try and prove me wrong http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/lol.png
