Re: Land.

Yeah you can find some plots of land, mostly in the western Adirondacks for around 20k. I don't know that I'd compare that to an adventure vehicle though.

I tend to think of it this...

No, all the DEC campgrounds close in winter, but many of them are plowed at least partially.

There's a big snowmobile connector there by Bug Lake, so it seems to be always plowed or packed down at...

I was down that road, and again, it really depends on how much you are going to tow.

I was in a situation where I wasn't towing much more than a ton and I had both a V6 SUV and a V8 pickup. The...

This is EXACTLY why I never invested in one, or a second property. Even going most weekends during the winter and using hotels I never spent as much a year as I would paying on a RV. Spring through...

I'd seriously take the time to check out the van options. I think in the long run it will be less costly and more effective. Outfitting it can be done in steps if it's well planned i.e. strip it...

MRP is snowmobile access only during winter. The road is usually groomed though.

If I was in that area I'd just camp at 8th Lake - a parking area has always been plowed when I have been there.

If you're serious about having an adventure vehicle that can handle 4 season use I'd ditch the truck and consider a van.

There's a lot more you can do in terms of building it for 4 season use and...

Rochester area it depends on where you go. You can reach the western edge from most parts of Rochester within 3 hrs.

It usually takes me around 5-6 hours to get to the high peaks region. Now...

Yeah, there's apparently a difference between tailing and overburden. Overburden is relatively inert rock. Tailings are what was separated from the ore that was mined, which is sometimes unstable...

We have an early 80s Sawyer as well, 17', Kevlar, the same green as the one in your photos TB. We have more "modern" canoes as well, but we've kept this as our "kids" boat. It's still better than...

Pic of the lodge looks like a zoom of the previous shot from Frederica. I can see the exact same aspect in both pics.

Not familiar with any of those myself. I'm not aware of any of the views either, but I've never whacked out there.

Lost Lake is, per the Nat Geo Map, 1.5 miles west of Middle...

I suggest you purchase a paddler's map and an accompanying guide book. There are just too many options that fit this criteria in the Adirondacks.

I'm more interested in what it would take for teachers to team up with the DEC and become gainfully employed over summer break as Stewards or AFRs.

Obviously people who work in education (and love...

Yes I know stewards and afrs cannot enforce. They can however detain or acquire info that can be relayed to an eco. Read my previous post.

That would be my suggestion on how to handle that

OK I watched this.

All I get is they are asking for more Rangers.

I get that, to some degree, but I also think perhaps the job of Ranger should be a higher level job and they should have more...
