Old Tyme Woodsman. A friend and I were out on Little Tupper a few years ago, each in our solo canoes. I was trying to avoid the black cloud around my head by slathering with Ben's DEET, while my buddy was wearing OTW. When sitting still, he nad nothing anywhere near his boat , like an invisibile barrier surrounding him, while I was swatting and trying to paddle fast to get away. Even that seeems highly variable, sometimes it works, other times not so much. Research will show that the formula for OTW has changed significantly from the original formula that my dad used and I know worked well many years ago. Probalby due to one of those special California cancer risk warning scares.
