For what it's worth.
Also for what it's worth...no joke on the ticks. I was in Tennessee last week on spring break with the kids and was sitting on the curb at my hotel and found a tick going up my leg after just sitting there two minutes. And that was in clean cut short grass!

They are no joke with me my friend, in fact ticks is where I draw the line on authenticity. Just made a trip to Dick's Sporting Goods today and am spraying down my clothes and blankets with permithrin as we speak. It has always been rock solid as a tick repellent, and btw is no longer sold at Walmart.

Wally world in PA still sells it, the lable has changed.
I hope everyone is hydrated. Looks like the water will be coming from the inside, not the outside.
