> I much prefer the V slot style tick removers. Simple to use and since piece device, so not much to go wrong. Tweezers are much harder to use properly. Plastic tick tweezers are even worse, i feel like i'm just squeezing the tick empty....


Thanks Tjin I'll give them a try, when the stakes are Lymes Disease I don't want anything to go wrong!

On a completely unrelated point: when I Wikied riverdance to look up how to spell Flatley (I know: it was pretty obviously really); I see he competed in the Chicago Golden Gloves.
Guess like the old Irish saying goes 'don't give a sword to a man who can't dance'.
The 1958 cha cha champion of Hong Kong was Bruce Lee.

As to how long intact tins will keep food fresh I found this:

Wikipedia:

>
The steamboat Bertrand, carrying cargo up the Missouri River to Virginia City, Montana Territory, sank on April 1, 1865, after hitting a snag in the river north of Omaha, Nebraska.

Half of its cargo was recovered 100 years later....

In 1974, samples of canned food from the wreck, including brandied peaches, oysters, plum tomatoes, honey, and mixed vegetable, were tested by the National Food Processors Association. Although their appearance, smell and vitamin content had deteriorated, there was no trace of microbial growth and the food was determined to be still safe to eat.

You might try to pack a dual use item: a needle threader
Around here they are also sold as tick removal tool (at a significantly increased price). In pinch you can also use to thread a needle. They work fine for both uses.

It often is the only tool for the situation. That automaticly makes it the best.
I converted to a multitool and a Buck folding hunter or a decent sized fixed blade. I still have a SAK for the superior can opener (I have one in my kitchen primarily for that can opener).
