camping pests - stealth or otherwise
Here in Texas, where there's lots of livestock along the local roads, a body can pick up any number of misery-generating vermin - most significantly among them, ticks and chiggers.
Sleeping in areas that haven't been chemically beaten into entymological submission would seem to be bad form based on this fact if nothing else.
Any Southwestern US touring campers that have developed effective defenses for this sort of thing?
