I picked up a tick once in the UK - totally freaked out and had to resist running to A&E.  I waited till the next morning and went to the emergency GP who happened to be an Australian locum.  I said you probably think I am overreacting and he looked at me and told me I had the most sensible reaction he had seen in Britain.  People need to learn that these critters are bad, bad, news, and take precautions.

 

Ticks are gross.   I spend lots of time in Canadian Rockies & pick up few every spring.   Couple of years back,  2 days after the hike morning coffee and absent-minded started pulling on small lump on my neck.   Pulled harder still not thinking won't come off, went to mirror and there he was.  Sucker was lodging in my neck >48 hours.   Needed tweezers to pull it out and it hurt.  Went to doc because it was in for such a long time, and despite assurances that "there is no Lyme in Alberta" had blood drawn and tested.

 

This spring after hike,  shower and I find it in my privates. I am a guy and it was right on, well can't get graphic in public forum, but you get the idea. How the hell did it get in there??? 

 

They are hard to kill and persistent.  Even if you shower it off your body down the drain it can swim back in.  Bottom line -- check yourself out thoroughly and if it started digging itself in don't throw it away, but put in small box and take to doc.  Easier to have tick tested against Lyme than to have your own blood drawn.

This was used in a UK online newspaper, in an article about the National Trust evicting an outdoor children's nursery from its base camp in the forest.

A couple of $$, travel marketing, repeat use for 10 years, put me over last year for revenue. Averages still well down.

Thank you very much. Being self-critical, they look a little over-lightened when viewed indoors being that they were edited out on the pier. The back lighting on the day was harsh so needed a bit of pushing.

I wasn't going to mention that out of professional courtesy-  I might have pushed the highlight slider down a bit, but they'll jump off the page in print.

Very well done.

Didn't it used to be like $5? I did notice an increase in payments for UKNS recently but $$$?
