    I like John Oliver's comedic style so I liked it. Economics and human hubris is driving too much of the Everest trade. In this particular instance, Darwinism is multi-dimensional. Most of the...

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

    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.
