The big midsummer show is 18 and 19 July2015. It is forecasted to be hot and sunny. I don't expect it to be half as big as the spring show but I usually find plenty of interesting people and things. It is on RT 85 in Colchester, CT just south of the Hebron Town Line. Good Luck, Rick

   No go for me this time, to many summer projects to get done while the weather is nice.

Close enough for me. I always wanted to go. Is one day better than the other?

I've been told Saturday morning is the best. You can see it tapering off in the afternoon. There is some on Sunday but it is much smaller. Have water and a hat with you because it will be very hot out there. Good Luck, Rick

You are right to take preventative measures. Twentynine years working in these woods has taught me that the repellents aren't reliable enough. I am surrounded by woods that are loaded with deer and ticks. The best prevention is to go immediately into the bathroom, throw your clothes directly into the washer and take a hot soapy shower. That DEET is nasty stuff if you get too much on your skin.

We learned the hard way back in the 80s when Lymes Disease was still denied by the government. It is a germ warfare agent that escaped from Plum Island(off the coast of Lyme, CT), in the 1950s. My wife and I have each been treated twice. Our dogs were treated many times but it finally killed the three of them.

A big plus is a hot shower feels good after working outside. Good Luck, Rick
