New Arrival to the Freedom29 Family

It is my great pleasure to announce that on October 7, 2010, four days after returning from Rurrenabaque, Kristin's hip gave birth to the Amazonian Jungle Tick pictured below (still unnamed). It was a difficult delivery, highlighted by squirming, screaming and gagging on Kristin's part, but the Tick finally emerged healthy and hit the ground running (literally). Mother is recovering (emotionally) and, several days later, can now be considered to be resting comfortably.


  1. EEEW, I hate ticks! Unfortunately not only in the Amazon... I picked one off Nellie earlier this summer....Sask is crawling with them in the spring, you can't even walk in long grass! SO disgusting!

  2. Yeah, we're not fans. At least we can be thankful that it was Nellie and Kristin and not you or I.
