First Tick of the Year — 2016 Edition

2016FirstTickSince 2005 I’ve been posting on PDD about the first tick of the season to crawl up into my business. There’s probably no reason for it, other than to let you feel my pain and generally announce that it’s the time of year to check yourself after you’ve been in the woods.

I picked up this year’s inaugural tick at Ely’s Peak, where I never left the trail, so don’t chalk it up to bushwhacking.

A number of years ago I visited that really old cemetery in Jay Cooke State Park, the grass was mowed, very short, got back to the car, had about a half dozen crawling up my pant legs. I hate them so.
