Dave, You were lucky it was just your hindquarters. I've just got back from a couple of afternoon's climbing @ Duntelchaig. Jumped in the bath after a quick bedroom session & soon spotted a tick on my side. My parter came through with a towel & immediately exclaimed "Oh my god!" as she'd spotted a really big one with its legs waving, sticking out of my belly. She managed to burn these off with a fag. However, she then suggested checking my John Thomas & was horrified to discover one there, particularly given what we had just been up to in bed [I kid-u-not]. Didn't fancy burning that one off so tried pulling it but head got left in - any ideas? Also my friend Ewan says they give you Lyme Disease!
