    Absolutly! Any type of manufactured fragrance like soap, shampoo, conditioner, perfume, or cologne brings them in droves. Always amusing to have the most gussied up getting the worst of the bugs. A dunk in the lake and a dry in the sun is all you need in the summer!

    Currently on vacation, but coming back on July 31.
    Those mid July turns looked surprisingly legit. Skiing for the sake of skiing for sure, but far from the usual July 4 snow arch sketchiness.

    I'm thinking about Thursday, since I've never skied in August out east.
    Plus would be hilarious to end my ski season out here after thinking I had wrapped it up on Friday.
    Need to get some beta though first...

    End of ride today, as soon as I was out of the woods and rolling slow, deer flies swarmed in like a group of Zeros. Trust me that my 3rd ride unwashed kit was not perfumed nor had I doused myself in Axe.
    Also washing the car and felt something land on my arm. Before I could turn my head to see what is was, I got bitten by one of those invasive faux ladybugs.

    Contemplating bring my rack up to climb. Have a sport rack and some trad pieces. Know nothing of the Maine climbing scene. Lead 5.8 sport. Also don't mind being belay bitch. Trying to get back into teh climbing game.

    Not much rock that I know of around Bigelow for trad or sport, there are some boulders but I’ve never climbed them. Closer to Weld is Tumbledown that has a few sweet multi pitch trad lines in a very enjoyable setting. The AMC route goes about 5.6 and is a fun way to the summit. Shag, IIRC, has 1 or maybe 0 routes in the 5.8 range, but things may have changed. Clifton, Acadia, Camden, have numerous lines in that range but are a fairly far drive from Bigelow.

    I live in Acadia and here's a climbing resource page to get you started if you come down this way. Good climbing, great views.

    Awesome time after biking at K. Killington slays the mtb scene, must have been 500 bikers there with a half hour Ramshead LL.

    Band was a fun listen, heard a bunch of people say Hayley reminded them of Janis.
