It’s always interesting to read where and how the SansBug is being used in different parts of the world. Chris, Managing Director of LoneStar – Africa Works, an Austin-based non-profit is working with beekeepers in South Sudan to sell their honey in USA. He just got back last week after a month-long trip. Here’s part of an email from him:
The tent worked great. Used the four-fold with the strong cinch strap and packed it carefully in my bag. Kept it in tri-fold once I reached the ground. For the first time since 2009 I could wake up without bites.
In fact I had the best sleep of the whole trip in the SansBug, deployed on the mattress in a tukul hut at the remote farm of our beekeeper-partners. Unfortunately my camera was out of batteries by then.
But everyone who saw it asked about the SansBug. High quality item. Am recommending it to a friend of mine who has moved to South Sudan with his family.
Even when staying in hotels, he preferred to deploy the SansBug since the mosquito nets provided are usually torn.
