Just yesterday morning I was out taping in my backyard with a couple of the “North American Hunter-TV” producers. We like to be “done” with most of our taping come the heat and heart of the summer here in Minnesota, but Can-Am just became a sponsor of our show, so we needed to get some running footage and tip segments with the new Outlander 650 XT.
I knew what to expect as we ventured onto the trails in the thick hardwoods across the road from my house. It’s been a wet summer here in the North Country, and there’s standing water everywhere—perfect for a bumper crop of mosquitoes.
The first thing I did when I walked out the garage door to get things ready at 6 a.m. was fire up a ThermaCELL and strap it to my belt. From then on, I went about my business without another thought concerning the bugs, even through the next 4 hours of prep and taping.
One of the producers showed up in short sleeves and short pants! I offered him spray, but he wasn’t too keen on that because he didn’t want to go back to the editing suite the rest of the day smelling of bug dope. So, I went back to the garage and grabbed one of the ThermaCELL lanterns my wife and I use when we are sitting around the fire pit in the backyard.
Not having much experience with ThermaCELLs, the producer wasn’t real positive about its effects—for about 5 minutes. From then on, I noticed him carrying that lantern everywhere he went for every shot setup we made. By the time we were done, he was another ThermaCELL believer.
