Justin, I had no idea that the mooses are on Facebook now too. Who will be signing up next, bears? Chipmunks?

I modified an older external frame backpack by pulling the pins and sliding out the top bar and replacing it with two U shaped sets of prongs. It works very well for carrying a canoe and the total...

Those are great pictures, especially the rainbow. Is that hickoryskier's Osprey that he built a few years ago?

Thanks for posting about the paddling on and around Tupper. I've been wondering what it was like, it seems like a nice area for sure. The cliffs on the islands and the main lake look especially...

I think I heard sometime that in state-run campgrounds there is a limit of 2 tents, or 1 tent and a camper per site, or something like that. Backcountry regulations limit group size to 8 or 9, but...

I made my first visit to Bog River Flow last month and had a very pleasant time. I was in a canoe, and I imagine you'd probably go faster in kayaks. I spent about 3+ hours in actually paddling out...

Me too, I often am gone from my campsite from early morning till late afternoon or evening, but I would be sad if someone took it away.

DSettahr, thank you very much. Your knowledge is, as always, truly encyclopedic. The WMA funding distinction makes sense, I was not aware of either of the Acts you referenced. I don't hunt or fish...

I had no idea that people could get permits to fly airplanes from the Thruway, I had heard of emergency landings on highways but I always thought that was a more informal arrangement.

Thanks, that's great to know. It's interesting that the 's got dropped from the name somewhere along the way, but I guess that sort of thing is fairly common with Adirondack place names.

Tick Magnet, thanks for posting, it looks like a beautiful place. Does anyone know the history of the name? Both halves seem rather odd, to be applied to fairly normal pond.

I'm glad you only stay at unique sites, your trip reports would not be nearly as interesting as they always are if you stayed at dull cookie-cutter sites instead.

Thanks for posting, that's some fast hiking and you certainly got a lot of very nice pictures along the way.

I'm glad it worked out so well for all concerned. I just didn't want to take the chance, I guess.

I've read in older books about the tradition of using hidden boats at remote waters, but I never tried it myself. I don't fish, so I had less incentive than some. Now I take a canoe with me and...

Rickhart, I'm glad I wasn't missing something obvious about the right way through the floating bog. I suppose that if it did break off from the larger bog and drift in there it's not surprising that...

Banjoe, good for you, that's a level of dedication to music which I have never achieved. It makes sense that a metal clad or spunover rim would work well for a camping banjo. You're very brave to...

The banjos I build are made largely from wood and are not waterproof, so I wouldn't want to take one of those. There are some old banjos made from bakelite or metal, and some new ones made from...
