    I was there as a DoD contractor working at the hospital back in 93. “Fort Lost in the Woods”! Best Chinese and German restaurants in the country right outside the gate! Even saw Big Bertha at the original BPS in Springfield.

    There used to be a pack of dogs around the south side of the lake that used to chase the deer out into the lake

    Probably a lot of phrases originated from such relationships:
    Yes Deer! Right away deer! Whatever you say Deer!

    I went again yesterday...I won't be doing that again for a while. Ticks EVERYWHERE. I tried not to touch anything but almost every branch I brushed up again left ticks on me. I probably picked off 15-20. If I went bushwhacking back there the way I used to, I would have literally had 100s on me. This is from the dam and hiking toward the West.

    This is a link describing a little known aspect of tick life cycle and effects .seed-ticks-the-scourge-of-the-earth . Adult or Larval known as a tick bomb . I had an infestation of this sort when I lived in Virginia , my feet and legs up to the chins looked like I had a bad case of measles . Nothing seemed to work until I stood on the beach fishing and abraded the skin with sand while in the water ,never had anything itch like it , lasted for weeks . WR

    I think a side effect of Covid is tick infestation. I went to Loveland today, brushed up against one bush and had 8-10 ticks on my pant leg.

    I've never seen anything like this. I'm used to finding 1-2 every couple of years but this is ridiculous.
