Default Ticks (Beware)

I ended up getting a little complacent as I had not had many ticks since the spring show up on me. Well I ended getting one in a place that was hard to find. Ended up in the ER to have it removed, it's only me at home, I couldn't get at it. It was painfully removed. I sent the tick to be tested, paid $200 plus dollars for everything. Fortunately for me the Tick had not been engorged, there was no blood (human or otherwise) inside it, and they estimated it was on me for less than 7hrs. Unfortunately, it tested positive for Lyme Disease, 2 other Lyme related diseases and the particularly nasty Powassan virus. This got on me in Tuftonboro. So be aware out there.
