About to go camping in the Catskills in a month. Ticks and Lyme disease are already getting some big headlines that 2017 might be a record year. The CDC has some pretty good data to comb through:
They even have a cool map by year of confirmed cases. The problem is that you really cant see the progression over time. So i copied the maps and made a nice quick GIF!
Now we can easily see what has happened over the past 15 years. Seeing this... I have already bought some tick removal gear from amazon. :) T minus 30 days till camping!
