Fantastic.

And I was hoping to have a tick free climb there in the gap between storms.

Guess I will get my fix on the other side of the river.

Ive been there quite a few days recently and only picked up a couple. Its worth going now before they get worse during the summer, it's bone dry down there as well.

Real shame. I have unfinished business at goblin and want to repeat that route, not necessarily flying wise :-D . It's going to be hard to convince Howard to go back. It was nice meeting you. See you next time.

Its fine down there, at least for the next couple of months, unless you go rolling around in the undergrowth!.

9 of the Little Lyme disease carrying vampires is the count now. Was only there couple of hours.

If going, Leave fido at home, and Shorts Probably a bad idea.

In reply to Choss: Before we discovered Front line we used to cover the ticks with tooth paste ( not recommended now) she looked funny as we had different coloured toothpaste! and a spotty dog.
