We leave mid June to head North to Maine for the summer. I know ticks are a much bigger problem in the Northeast than they are in Florida. Our vet will do the Lyme vaccination, but she says it's not a sure thing. I've seen recommendations on the net to skip the vaccine and just monitor closely.
We will be living on a boat, so she will only be exposed during walks (I hope!). I believe there are lots of folks here who live up North and would appreciate recommendations.
(Here's the cover page my husband made for our "Road Trip Binder" for the driving part of the trip - this should be quite the adventure)
