Also, I can share my experience on the Upper Works/Mud question with a caveat. When I used to go to the HP's more frequently before the turn of the century I was usually coming down from the North...

Just want to add something to D's advice. Store the canister AWAY from your camp.

I have generally avoided the High Peaks area over the last 20 years, but have overnighted at Lake Colden a few...

Ok, so...percolator was a mixed bag. Not sure it's worth it.

On the upside the coffee was very good. My small percolator was able to make 4 good size cups for each pot and we could make it as...

I just got back from Forked Lake and instead of bringing the Noah's tarp I splurged a bit (for me anyway) and bought a Nemo Bugout before we left. It's the exact same thing as the Noah's tarp, but it...

A couple years ago I was there on a Dads-n-daughters trip and one of the other guys caught a good size walleye. We cooked it up and added it to our taco bags for dinner and with the Spanish rice and...

Well, that didn't take long. Hadn't even finished unloading the canoe and he was yelling to me that he got one. Luckily I had already flattened the barbs so he was able to get it off the hook no...

Boy, I think I need to eat a slice of humble pie. After all the years of tisk-tisking over hikers and campers who don't bother to read the rules much less educate themselves about LNT, or boaters who...

Thanks for the input guys. I'll pick up a licence this year just to be on the safe side. And I'll squeeze the barbs down on his hooks. It's always bothered me when he was younger, and I had to get...

Ok, now we're cooking with gas! This morning's pot was even better. 2 tbs/8oz was a step in the right direction.

I always forget how much I love my old pocket rocket. Since I've had kids and done...

Ok, so I think I need a little education. As a non-fishing person I assumed that everyone "targets" something. Maybe you decide you want to hook a walleye so you pick the right lure and drop your...

Ok, so I made a pot with a dark roast and this time, rather than letting it boil away, I turned down the temp as soon as I saw the first blurp. I was amazed at how little flame it needs to keep it...

I'm a bit confused about the bass season. I had previously looked at the regs and it seemed like bass was fine all year as long as you weren't keeping any.

Not sure if I needed to specify, but he...

That's an option too. I have an old french press accessory for my jetboil. I tried it a couple of times in the past, also with not good results, so I had given up on it.

I was considering the...

Percolator coffee help

Kelty Noah's tarp. They have a 9, 12 and 16. I wouldn't call it ultralight by any stretch. If you are looking for backpacking you might want to look for something else. For canoe camping or car...

Non-fishing Dad needs help

Hey guys, heading to forked lake next week and could use some help. I have never been into fishing but my son (10) seems to be hooked (sometimes I just crack myself up).

He wants to target bass,...

I wonder if we could lobby DEC to put plaques in each lean to that say something like "Remember to share your lean to".

While my experience certainly doesn't constitute a formal survey, my hunch...
