    Was in NY (CT border to Dennytown Rd.) two weeks ago. Very dry. Relied on the wells and towns. Carried 3L often. Bugs were virtually a non issue. Enjoy the trip.

    Iím with you. I use a bandanna as a wash cloth and bronners. This gets all of the salts and oils off of my skin. I wash clothing (underwear and socks) in a gallon ziplock.
