Well it looks like your lawn was "navigable" for them. Better be careful - soon they'll find some judge who says they have a right to drive on it. :D

You can repair most of the gouges in an XC ski with PTex, the same as you would for most skis. If the fish scales themselves are damaged, that's a different story and those are much more work to...

Good questions. And there is an ongoing controversy about filtration, as detailed in the 46er magazine recently. I err on the side of caution.

As far as survival situations in the Adirondacks, I...

Me too. If I'm going to need to get water, I just carry the filter.

Sure, a "minority" of sources are contaminated. But for your health, "most of the time" isn't good enough. All our food and...

Hi Sero,

Sorry if I confused you with my water well information.

Your posts are always interesting.. but I have to admit, most of the time I don't understand your posts, either.

I followed that flagging too, a few years ago, over towards Hedgehog (looking for cliffs). Did not find anything interesting, but wondered about the origin of the flagging.

To add to your data - I had my residential water well hydrofracked about 3 years ago. A very small earthquake had caused a lot of gravel to fill in the well hole (about 550' underground). The well...

Good news. I have long said that the "Wilderness / Wild Forest" divide for bikes was stupid nonsense. There are numerous trails in so-called Wilderness that are very well suited for bikes, and...

Years ago on this forum we used to discuss the idea of a "true" wilderness area; setting aside an area where no people would go at all. Close the area to all visitors. Including "scientists",...

Well, not so much. Poor analogy. Sidewalks almost always exist in a strip between private land and existing public land (the road; hence the term "SIDEwalk.") Where a walkway passes through...
