Hell, I fell in Georgia on a flat, dry section of trail a few weeks ago... Hmmm... Says something about my conditioning and abilities too, I guess... Section hikers have a tough time staying in shape, especially for the Whites, and especially for that weather... That's brew pub weather.

The worst I've ever been hurt while hiking was in The Whites 
last year...and, my conditioning and ability had nothing to 
do with it...as I was standing perfectly still when it 
happened.  Which just goes to show ya... anything can happen 
at anytime.
