This is kind of technical, but on forums where I have a lot of pictures to post I usually put them in a table, with a caption beside each one. I just tried that in the Paddling section, and it...

I'm sorry that you had to endure such a miserable incident, Tbutler. For the loss itself, and for the way it makes us think about our fellow humans. Out in the woods and on the water, we want to...

OK, a few years ago my wife and I camped on Long Pond (the one near Floodwood Road) because she doesn't favor cruising trips, but we did two day trips. The first one was easy: the short level carry...

Or dis-organized ones?

I'm wondering if there are any organizations that put groups together for Adirondack trips of a reasonably adventurous kind. The NY chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club,...
