Interesting insight. Not sure it makes complete sense to me, but I'll say this, it would be more akin to leaving a tire or door in the parking space, not a whole vehicle. I wouldn't touch or move...

I didn't see anyone mention Alger Island on 4th Lake in the Fulton Chain. The campground is managed by the DEC and has many reserveable lean tos. It is also boat access only, but there are plenty...

This was my thought exactly. Only if it was obvious that no one had been there for a couple days would I do anything.

Honestly I don't pay that much attention to most other campers, but I could...

If I think it from the other point of view, and I came to site that I left abandoned and someone packed my gear up, I would be a little peaved, but in reality, I'd just grab my stuff and go get a new...

Well I'd only do this in a case like the OP state where I KNEW this is what they were doing and I'd risk it. I'd like to see them prove their tent was there on Thursday and that I took it down. It...

I'm kind of a dick myself.

I'd take down their tent and pack it up for them to nicely pick up on Saturday morning while I enjoyed a nice breakfast at "their" site.

Congrats on the move. I'm very jealous!

Some people paddle right up until the water literally does have ice on it. Def late Nov/early Dec. Lots of people paddling in Nov for big game season. ...

And just to add, both Xanax and Klonopin are commonly prescribed to people for situational anxiety. A perfect example is fear of flying. These short term anxiety meds help people relax enough to...

Addiction shouldn't be an issue for the OP if he were to use it for this specific situation. It's pretty mild and doesn't really have any "feel good" kind of symptoms. It makes you a little tired...

I'm not a MD, and it's hard to say without more gross and specific info, but it could be IBS.

Easiest way to treat an intermittent IBS flare up is some kind of short acting anxiety med e.g. Xanax,...

They seem to be pushing them to older guys. We'll see how it goes.

Around here (western NY), I see them pull up to a trailhead looking all shiny on the back of someone's car, then eventually the...

And I guess illegal use is another concern, but I don't see it being any worse than illegal biking.

I think most people will ride them on dirt and gravel roads, which is a perfect application, and...

I really doubt it Johnny. To make that deduction we'd have to look at bikes. Mountain biking is pretty limited in the Adirondacks and I wouldn't expect this to be any more popular than that. It's...

The issue is not so much trail impact - TM is correct on that. The issue is more intangible, and why it's so much more of an issue. It's really about drawing the line for motorized use.

Well I'd say seen as how the reg is there to prevent stripping of the sites, I'd say it would probably be illegal, technically. Would anyone say anything? I highly doubt it.

I know we want to...

My suggestion would be Blue Mountain Lake, or one of the lakes connected to BML. There are a number of sites out there, and I find camping out in that area enjoyable. There are motor boats, but not...

I think most of them will be OK with using on CRF but getting a transport there may be a tall order. I know Mountain Man and St Regis both shuttle, but I've never heard of transport to and from a...
