Good advice from others. Both my father and elder brother had knee replacements, so it may be in the cards for me. For now, at 53, my knees let me know they are there but no where near the pain I...

We have about 17 peaks under out belt. We also enjoy canoeing and camping in general. I was getting concerned about contributing to the overuse of the 46 peaks so we usually make a point to come at a...

Thank you sir.

This will certainly come in handy. I am starting to realize that all of my hiking in the ADK's does not have to be up hill towards a peak.
