Ticks, Snakes and Tires.

August 20, 2018 04:30AM avatar
Del & Patsy,

We had an over-supply of ticks in all three townsites earlier this year during our 7th WTHO on April 26th thru 29th. Kind of early for such a heavy dose of ticks, and all I can figure is they didn't like all the summer heat and traveled on because I never had one on me, or on Miss Rikki, or even spotted one in the sagebrush and other weedy growth.

Snakes are always a concern because I don't care for snakes, any kind of slithery critter. And after Rikki getting bit in the face in 'Lost' in late April two years ago, I am always on the watch for a snake and armed to deal with them. But no snakes spotted on this trip of any kind.

Tires, of the punctured variety, I have experienced before. One I noticed as a slow leak in 'Lost' and the other in 'Lonesome Arch,' but I was fortunate enough that those were weekday events and the leaks were slow. Slow enough I made it back home to Vale and Les Schwab tire center in time to be taken care if. Nails.

So it looks like ticks and snakes are not a problem now, just various debris to cause us fits .... and flats..

Hopefully your next journey up there will be problem-free.

Monte
