The new most important camping gadget

The kids spent the day with us yesterday….along with Kate’s inlaws.  It always blesses my heart when I can witness my girls being loved by their spouses parents!!  

Being a gadget and electronic junkie, Adam seems to feed and encourage this by introducing me to them….like my Apple Watch that I cannot live without.  And the electronic bug zapper tennis racket!!!  Who knew?!?!


When the sun went down last night, and the outside camper lights came on our prey was plentiful.


The sound and the sparkles of hunting mosquitos was very satisfying not to mention the upper body workout.  Even while He was putting out the fire in the microwave while trying to warm up his hot dog (and I’m not kidding), we were zapping the mosquitos and other pests which snuck in the door so we had no buzzing and bites overnight while we slept.

Amazon or Walmart for $5…2 double A batteries and your life will be changed forever!!!

Until next time.

  1. We had one of those swatters at work. When people would come in the office, they would let in flies from the warehouse. Black house flies make the most satisfying pop when they contact the swatter. They also smell like burnt hair. Crickets and grasshoppers will also pop, but you have to look for them. I’m not sure bug torture is kosher in the age of animal rights. Even so, there is a sense of accomplishment.

    A guy that lived in my dorm when I was in college in Cincinnati found a praying mantis once. He tied a thread around it’s neck and flew it down the hall on the thread. He said he was out walking his mantis.

    Just thought I would throw that in since we are talking about creative ways to use insects.
