I like the Peterson guide to trees, but it probably isn't as small & light as you want (though I often take two Peterson guides plus a smaller dragonfly one). There are smaller, basic tree field...

I know the dog is named already (I think Jasper is a neat name) -- but have to add that I met someone on the trail this year with a dog named Summit. I thought it was a fun name, for us...

I thought it must be something like that. The ALC is so entrenched & wealthy that it was a hard scenario to believe -- like hearing that the Ausable Club had to leave their reserve. We're not...

Wow -- I didn't know that. I know that leantos work that way, but I always thought the canoe camping sites were one party only. And frankly, while at some of the larger ones you could have two or...

I've used them some years and they do seem to reduce the number of ticks, but not eliminate them all. To put enough out is pretty expensive if you buy them, but there are various directions online...
