I'll take black flies over ticks and poisonous snakes any day.

ya gotta love the Platte. And hate f*%king rattlers. I think I already told the story where one of those nearly sent me for the big ride in TN. In '81 we were hiking in SoCal on the PCT with a 6'4" 240 lb. ex-bouncer who was carrying a .45 in a custom pocket on top of his pack because he was 'worried someone would f&%k with him.' Really, Mark? Really? Anyway, the trail was still pretty sketch in a lot of places then and we had lost it and were whacking up a steep boulder strewn gully with Mark in front, and then we hear the buzz and here comes this huge guy tumbling back down the gully screaming, 'Snake! Snake!' and just about wipes us out. And it was a BIG f**king rattler, I estimated 6' and totally unimpressed with us, and then this guy whips out his .45 and starts blazing away in it's general direction mostly hitting rocks and god only knows where these slugs are bouncing around, and I'm like 'god DAMMIT, we're either going to get shot or eaten.'
