If you have ever heard the new song "Tick" by Brad Paisley going places where ticks are could come in handy.

I heard over the winter that the extended warm weather through January might make the tick and mosquito threat much worse this year. The long cold weather will kill off many that didn't this year. Be careful.

I've never had a tick on me in my life until this year. I've had three of the Michigan genus in the past 2 weeks, and another today from along the Mighty Maumee River either at Sidecut or Perrysburg. I guess I'm going to have to start spraying before caching

Glacier Trailing is one of the oldest caches in the area but I never found it yet.

I interpret "this year" and "overall" as two different items. Any way you slice it it's "creepy".
