Good for you. I hope that the overnight idea works out, it sounds like a good plan. I haven't tried a SUP yet but am still hoping to in late August or September once I am living up there full time.

I have had a few incidents when dogs ran up to me while their owners were not yet in sight and then growled and raised their hackles. I don't carry a stick, so I don't have anything to hold them off...

It's the boat launch on the Raquette on Route 3 east of Tupper Lake. It is called that because a stone crusher was parked there when the highway was being built some time ago, from what I have been...

It sounds like one of those could be pretty alarming. I'm glad you were in a relatively safe place when it came by. I guess it's like being hit by a falling tree, unlikely but always possible out...

Bugs were not bad in Piercefield this week either, hardly any during the day and only some in the evenings.

I have been told that "Arab" is most likely a corruption of the French word erable, which means maple (as in "sirop d'erable" on bilingual maple syrup containers).

Thanks, that's very nice to know. A lot of the plants up there are the same as here on the western side of Tug Hill, but some are new to me and I'm hoping to get up to speed on them at some point.

Mount Arab, May 31, 2022

I was working at the house in Piercefield Monday-Thursday last week and decided that since I had made a good start on putting up the woodshed on Monday I would climb Mt. Arab on Tuesday morning. I...

I was in downtown Piercefield till yesterday at 5 and didn't see any black flies yet, but Lows and that area are in the southern end of the town, so perhaps the black flies would get there sooner. I...
