FYI

I have been working on blowdowns after Sandy, and 3 nights in a row, I came home
to small ticks, large ticks, all sorts of ticks each night crawling on me.

So, be extra vigilant on checking for freeloaders when you get back from
a ride, and also shine a light up and down your camelbak, and on your
MTB shoes to ensure no critters are hanging out...
