30 Day SAK Stack Challenge Swisschamp
« on: March 27, 2017, 01:09:35 AM »
I've been neglecting my mighty Swisschamp as of late, and really enjoyed putting it to use today, so here goes: 30 days with 1 awesome piece of kit!!  I've got a hike with the boy scout troop that my youngest belongs to in a couple weeks, so I hope to get some good use out in the woods for two nights out.  In addition to work, I've plenty to keep us busy here on the ranch so hang on for the ride!!

Thanks everyone!  Day 1 saw the pliers getting put to use.  Springtime has hit Pennsylvania and with it we've had issues with Deer Ticks.  I used the pliers to grab one each off the coats of our two sheepdogs.  They're just tiny enough that I couldn't get a pic to post.  Just 10 minutes ago, my son used his Swiss Spirit pliers to pull one off me that had started to bore in.  Mild winter didn't do us any favors with these guys!

Who says these pliers aren't handy!  I had a stubborn watch stem that the Swisschamp pliers are tailor made to fix!

I had a borrelia infection caused by tickbite in november 2015. The photo shows the telltale red ring in the back hollow of my left knee. I was on antibiotics for two weeks and suffered no ill consequences (as far as I can tell).

BTW Succes on this challenge! The SwissChamp will handle almost anything!

Thanks everyone!!  It should be a lot of fun!  Thanks for posting that pic Ronald.  I've never seen the "ring" before so now I know what to look for.  I've known a few who've had Lyme disease and hope to avoid the ranks in that club if I can!!

As you probably know, almost everyone with outside jobs will get bitten every now and again. Many farmers, foresters, military personnel carry borrelia antibodies as a sign they have been infected. About 1 in 10 bites will get you an infection (in the Netherlands), about 1 in 10 infections will get you Lyme's disease if left untreated. Beware though that the ring looks different each time.

The Swisschamp and I wound up hanging a door yesterday.  That wonderful inline Philips screwdriver is a joy to use!
