I see where you're going in terms of tax revenue, but easements are still privately held. By my count we're just under 50%.

My hope for the future was acquiring wilderness inholdings, but I'm not...

Oh I'm agreeing with you. I think the issue is that not necessarily that the road needs to go, but that it shouldn't take you all the way there. Perhaps if it was 3 miles hike and there were...

The specific case of Boreas ponds is actually probably set up counter to what I'm saying here.

In this case the boundary between wild forest and wilderness should be set at an appropriate limit to...

I was hoping for more feedback, but it's still early. Perhaps these discussions have no merit except to sour the water?

I was hoping not to get caught up in the semantics of wilderness, but...

Ideal Land Management

Completely hypothetical, but if we could better shape land management, would it be more ideal have a "matryoshka dolls" model where wilderness areas were surrounded by a "buffer" of wild forest, and...

No idea. Hope you feel better man...

I don't know a lot about poison ivy, it doesn't seem to affect me but I also know that the oils can really spread all over the skin if you're rubbing it around. My BIL got into some in his garden...

Is the rash everywhere you got wet? Or is it contained?

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...

Yeah, they are DEC signage. It's common here at trailheads but less commonly do we have the smaller trail distance signage like in the ADKs.

I've tried to remove my product placement brainwashing...

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...

This is true, but with the popularity of the CL50, I would expect to see some people where you encounter that trail.

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...

If shuttling is an issue, you can also start at Lows, or Lila and make a loop using Cranberry lake. There's some long carries going this way. I've never done this personally, but there was a trip...
