Having an outdoor wedding in Bay City Michigan the end of June and I am wondering if anyone knows of an effective and safe way to eliminate mosquitoes from the area for several hours? I really want to be sure no pets, people or the environment itself are toxic, I just want the nasty blood suckers to leave myself and the guests alone!

Are there any alternatives to the (Boy|Girl) Scouts that are secular in nature?

I have a son, almost 12, and a daughter, 9, and have been thinking about getting them involved in more outdoor activities. They're home-schooled, so they do get the opportunity to get out and play in the yard and with a few other kids in the neighborhood, but I'd like them to be introduced to a wider range of activities that outdoors-type groups like the scouts might provide (and not being an outdoorsy-type myself, might be able to better instruct in), but I'm put off by both the nationalistic and religious overtones that seem to pervade the Scout oaths. I'd prefer something with more of a global/wildlife focus. [more inside]

Happy camper. Or not...

I have scored a week long wilderness trip. Hurrah for me. Except the last time I went camping was when I was, oh, 14. And I hated it. This time, I'll be working as well as camping. So my question to you, gentle woodsfolk of Metafilter, is what can I do to make my week in the wild productive and fun? Rather than the living hell I remember camping to be. [more inside]
