Camping stool

When I was in the south of France this year I met lots of people from Holland and they all seemed to be using a camping stool that was off the ground with a back rest I tried one out and found it to be very good, does anybody know where I can pick one up.

Mosquitoes

Just had this sent to me.
How to kill mosquitoes-NOT A JOKE.
Might be of use on tour,fill a small spray bottle with LISTERINE and spray around you whenever you see mosquitoes if it does not work back to square one its a mouthwash.

Re: Is my Insurance expensive?S.American Trip.

Try Snowcard insurance they cover sport and cycling touring they rate C/T as low risk I dont think my annual cover for Europe and the USA was as much as yours.
