To help out, we’ve rounded up everything you need for a perfect picnic day.

Of all the creepy crawlers, ticks keep me on high alert. They can be very tiny in the nymph stage and difficult to see. They love to hang out in tall grasses along the trail and hitch a ride on hikers passing by. I plan on treating most of my clothes and gear with Sawyer Permethrin.

I would often just drink directly from the sawyer squeeze if I was feeling lazy- which by the way works wonderfully.
