You've inspired me to go in solo, but I really do hope I have a camp neighbor. I guess #59 is popular so there is a good chance. This will only be my third solo backcountry trip and it gets a little creepy out there.
I know what you mean about not being able to see you feet. I was following a little overgrown fisherman's trail at Pretty Hollow only to have a huge snake cross about a foot in front of me. I only saw him as I was about to step on him.
