Tick season is here!
My partner and I counted at least 20 ticks in about 15 minutes of sitting on the top of Gallatin Tower(Montana) today.

I just got out the shower -two hours later- and one was crawling up my leg and another is firmly latched onto my back. We'll get the little bastard...

Look Out!
Know how to safely remove a tick and know the symptoms of Lyme's Disease. It can have very real and serious consequenes.

WebMD and a few other sites have reputable info.

Enjoy the warm weather and climb safe

For as old as that book is it is still so applicable. I haven't finished it yet but I plan on it. It's a real pleasure and an instant clasic.

Ah yes, a fantastic book. Though its not that old. The Complete Walker IV was published in 2002. Tho i guess overall it is old, if you count the other versions.

I didn't realize there was that recent of an edition... hmm. I'll have to look for it. The last one I saw was pretty ancient and hiding in some dusty old shelves here at MSU-Bozeman.
