Thanks for the advice, but you know what? I did wear light colored clothing, long sleeved shirts And tucked my pants into my socks and still somehow managed to get two ticks sneak their way past me and right into my flesh. It was so gross, I can't tell you.
If not DEET, do you know of any other repellent?
