That would have been my first idea but he is a bit skittish about being in a canoe this late in the season...he's 72, great shape but I think he really wants to test himself with a backpack again.

Funny, just got off the phone with him. He has ALWAYS been reluctant to stay at a lean to if there was someone else there upon, no issue. Unfortunately he is not going to bring his I'll load up my seldom used SD 3 man tent...Been so long I forgot the name but it looks like my Vapor Light 2.

EDIT: SD LIGHTNING XT3. 6 lbs. I remember when I bought that how incredibly light it was. It is 4 lbs more than my BA Fly Creek and 3 lbs more than my go to SD VL..not that I count ounces. But I think it makes sense to bring it....Figure it would be easier to argue with him tomorrow night than now.

I have to get my ADK trail book out but I assume there are primitive sites along the way to the lean to?

Going to be great! 23 degrees Sat morning. I love this time of year.
I sometimes put a wool hat or mitt over my nose, across my face, but not to cover my nostrils, just to keep my nose warm. You have to pay the piper somewhere for this kind of fun
