    I know what you mean. I tried taking a lunar this past spring when the
    bugs were bad without using any DEET. I couldn't do it. I just couldn't
    hold the sextant still long enough to get a good reading. Taking lunars at
    -30?C is extremely uncomfortable, but it's still easier than trying it in
    a swarm of mosquitoes.
    BTW, do you recall the altitude of Rocky? About 4000', I think?
