    So when I hike solo, do I have a fool for a leader or do I have anarchy in a group of one?

    If historical records going back to 10/20/2007 exist, whatever that number was, it's too high for safely making the crossings on the way to Owl's Head. I would estimate they were at least a few...

    We ended up on Vanderwhacker on 6/1. Black flies were out in force. The 25% DEET we had only kept them at bay until you sweated some. Never seen them this bad in NH.
