      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

I have 2 they work great 1 for the camp and 1 for the boat. They work so well I'm thinking to giving the Thermoscent a go and see how it works ( same idea, just for scent dispersal not bug dispersal)

To make the refills last a bit longer, I cut the scent pad in half and then get butane refills from the Walmart beauty department. The butane cartridge used for Thermocell are the exact same as the ones used in a Conair cordless curling iron. They're pretty cheap too, as I recall. I don't notice any reduction in effectiveness by using half a pad. YMMV.

My brother brought a Thermocell up to Canada fishing with us one time and that made a believer out of me. We were able to sit on the deck of the cabin drinking beers without bug spray and without getting eaten alive. We had a few skeeters, but not enough to drive us inside.
