As No. 75 in the 2002 Flight of the Bumblebees I joined
Steve ???, KD1JV, who took most of the accompanying photographs.
No. 575 is a close-up showing the attack on the arms and the blots
on the pants, compliments of thousands of black flies. We found out quickly
that repellant didn't work.
No. 577 is a longer shot showing the dense woods and ferns that surrounded
our operating position. It was beautiful and smelled good, too.
No. 579 shows just how dense the Maine woods can be. If you aren't
on the trail, you're in trouble. We're under the dark tree in the center.
