If it's contained I bet you got into something thrashing around in the bush, if it's all over - I have no idea.

I'd doubt with the...

I don't know what it is, but I really dislike the signage they use. For some reason I love the signage that is used in the Adirondacks, and everything else seems sub-par to me, aesthetically. But...

I typically like to visit at the end of September, but anytime mid-September to...

I think this thread has run its course, but just to clarify, I mentioned avoiding the lower Bog River which is part of the Whitney loop simple due to carries and rapids. It's definitely an option if...

It's an old boat, but in great shape. Lightweight kevlar and touring...
