    That's not real is it?

    A couple of years ago I got tested for tick-born illnesses and found out I've already had Rock Mountian Spotted Fever so I just don't even think about them anymore.

    In the middle of a very clean woods we were detecting a week ago the guy I was with found this rubber tarantula under the leaves, kids toy. We took this picture to show our wives. My wife went pale when she saw the picture, I told her it fell out of a tree.

    I don't know what to think about that...Not Having Lyme Disease In Missouri? Do We or Don't We? I've heard both.

    One of my cousins who's city to the core and considers camping...being in the Motor Home without her pool... was diagnosed with that several years ago... she couldn't remember Ever being bit or anywhere a tick was. I didn't believe it at all...mainly because if she would of ever known there was a tick on her..I think she would of had a breakdown and been in therapy over it.

    Her Lyme Disease Dr (there's only one that specializes in it here) scared her so bad she moved West where he told her it was safer and better for that condition. She comes back every 4 months for a check up.

    I've not been tested for it.

    I was walking barefoot in the yard here in WY and some hours later went to relieve myself, and discovered that 3 dog ticks had embedded themselves in my manhood. I ripped the suckers out but the next day felt ill, and spent most of my time for the next week in bed with serious fatigue, chills and aching joints. I'm pretty sure it was Colorado Tick Fever, and while it's hard to say I don't think I've been at 100% since then. That or I'm just getting old, heh.

    I determined that my lazy "disabled" neighbors never groomed their dogs and let fat bloated ticks lay their eggs all over and infest the area. Maybe found 1 on me hiking all over the place here, but plenty would crawl on me when I went in the yard. It was nasty.

    I actually live in Arkansas and I'd always heard on the news about Lyme disease and even know of a few people that have it but according to my doctor who ever it was from the state that called to confirm that I'd had RMSF there has never been a confirmed case of Lyme being contracted in the state. Apparently all of the cases around here are people who are believed to have contracted it while traveling.

    I requested the test because I had counted 200+ ticks that year (not all had bit me). The tider test came back positive for having had RMSF but not as an active infection. Meaning I'd had it at some point in my life and can't get it again. Strangely enough I have no idea when that might have been.

    Have a lady friend with lymes disease, you would never know as she is a fire ball and from Indiana/Wisconsin. She works in landscaping and other outdoor enterprises.

    I was a fire fighter and have been an Outdoorsman my whole life, have had rocky mountain spotted fever before so that is not a problem.

    Dang Horses from UK etc. On tour brought the USA lymes disease, Thanks a lot.
