Have stayed in Chadron before and it is SERIOUSLY TICK INFESTED. Same with some places up from there in SD. As long as you stayed off the ground and out of any tall grass you were OK. Maybe it was just a seasonal hatch out or something. But I think you made a good decision skipping that area for now.M1
Ty! Yes, something like Lyme disease would not be a help right now. Should I wear multiple layers all of the time tucked into socks be a defense barrier against those little critters.
