How We Roll in our RV: Cooking on the road and fighting black flies

Written by on May 29, 2013 in How We Roll, Videos with 3 Comments

Two very different questions from readers this week as we continue our “How We Roll in our RV” segment:

blackflyJennifer answers a question about cooking while traveling in our eTrek and I assure a reader that the fabled black flies that invade Michigan’s Upper Peninsula every summer should not deter him from traveling to one of the least visited but most beautiful places in North America.

I did a video called  “The curse of the U.P: Black flies” last year you may want to check out.

    Regarding black flies: I spent 4 summers working in a northern Michigan river fending off the black flies. There are a few strategies to keep them from making dinner out of you, like wearing light-colored clothing and keeping skin covered. For some reason, they tend to be attracted to the tallest head in the group. One strategy that works for me is to take a tall blade of grass or stick and situate it in my ball cap so that it rides a foot above my head …. try it next time you’re in the woods w/ black flies, you’ll be amazed!
