How do you do an effective Tick search?

I don't even really know what I'm looking for as stupid as it sounds, I'm not sure I've ever seen a tick. I'm designing courses in remote areas all over the country populated by deer and am sure to pick up some ticks along the way. Apparently tick borne encephalitis is now here in the UK too which is great. If I had a tick I'm not sure how/If I would identify it? Are they obvious? I've got hairy legs and other hairy areas, do you spot them easily in those areas or am I going to have to drop and bend in front of my wife for a thorough check every time I get home (I'm not sure our marriage will survive!)

So the question, how do you perform a tick check? How do you make sure you haven't missed one? If I have a bath/shower will they come off if they haven't attached yet?
