70+ ticks. From #1 found on Russ to #70-something found on me at home, we officially are calling it the "Tick Plague of 08". We might even make a graphic for it. We must have walked through a nest, or maybe it's because I applied Flirtatious Body Better (Arbonne lotion) before the hike, but for whatever reason, we spent the afternoon with a herd, school, flock, drove, pack, gaggle of ticks. I don't recommend hiking at this local state park anytime soon unless you're comfortable wearing scuba gear while walking up and down hills in the forest.
