Yeah I think weve been over this before but it seems to me new sites that the dec are marking even follow the 150 rule. I noticed this a few years back in St Regis CA and that a number of open...

I don't want to drift this thread too much but I'm not sure that some of the "illegal" campsites are legal and the DEC doesn't waste resource marking them, or the markers have been removed by people...

I was wondering if it might have been published back in the wild west days before UMPs existed.

Nice. So I assume you have some nnn bc boots you like?

If so, then Id recommend a binding change on the woodies. You might not like the Montana (new ski boots are always a gamble) and itll...

Do you have nnn? On the other skis?

If so it would probably be cheaper just to put new bindings on the woodies. Plenty of people use them with system bindings these days

You bet. Let us know how they are if you buy them.

Knowing where you live you'll likely get some more modern skis at some point - there's a lot of great XC/BC skiing within an hour from your back...

For sure.

The Antarctics are awesome and less expensive, but will take some break-in and a lot of maintenance i.e. oiling/sealing.

Alpina does make some less expensive boots, but I've not tried...

Yeah, that's problematic right now, or so I hear.

Hmmm - the Alaska would be great for those. Very warm, supportive and great flexibility (zero hot spots for me). Might be tough to find though...

Thanks! I'll take a look.

What are you looking for in boots? I'd discourage against buying used boots unless you're confident about them, or they are plastic and you plan on changing the liners....

I'm actually not entirely sure what schools do these days, but I think most of the schools in my area integrate most kids, except those that perhaps need very specialized and/or intensive support.

Special Ed in the Adirondacks

Wasn't quite sure where to put this or if I'll get any response, but mainly interested in school districts in and around the park and how their special education programs are.

I can't imagine some kind of treatment going away on the major routes like the Northway (or in other parts of NY, I90, I81, etc..)

But... if one could remove its use from all other roads, I think...

If you are solo, there's absolutely zero advantage to this (draw it out, you walk the trail exactly 3X).

There may be some psychological advantage to this though. I know I've been absolutely...

I think part of the issue for a lot of people not gravitating toward the long route are the portages, and the amount of gear (food) you need to carry to complete.

I'd probably try this in 5 days,...

Good point backwoodsman. I hadn’t considered that an issue, but you’re correct. I might be able to get a friend to go because my wife would need to watch the other two.
