Very nice. I was in Eagle Bay myself this past weekend. Unfortunately it was all business and no paddling or hiking.

I know several other words that describe "alarmists" much better. I was trying to be polite.

I'd be interested. I was unaware that there was any way to access those cliffs without trespassing. Please do share the info (privately if you prefer).

My boss just gave me his copy. Said he enjoyed it. Thought I would too. I put it in my backpack. Rainy day lean-to fodder. Based on my initial perusal, I estimate I won't enjoy it. Looks a lot like...

I think that what you have written here is offensive. It makes broad generalizations, and casts park residents in a poor light.

Those of us who live here don't come on this forum and cast...

Talk about slumming it, it was freezing rain and terribly dangerous out here last night so I couldn't get to the store for fresh supplies. I had to drink Coors Light that someone left here during the...

Re: What's Your Drink of Choice "By the Fireside"?

You didn't hit a nerve. Evidently you just aren't acquainted with me well is all. I'm just one of those people who speaks his mind. Not everyone appreciates that aspect of my personality. That's ok...

Re: "Adirondacks" or "Dacks"?

I concur. 'Dacks' is not a local thing. I don't know anyone here who uses that term, but I know tons of folks from elsewhere who do. I cringe when I hear it. Its just an awful bastardization.

Re: L.L.Bean IS THE BEST STORE I HAVE EVER BOUGHT ANYTHING FROM, HANDS DOWN!

Good to know about the Asolo slide in quality. Being a Scarpa guy, I probably would not have bought them anyway.

Garmont is another possibility I forgot to mention.

I fully agree about the...

Like many things, it not the Bean it used to be.

Scarpa, LaSportiva, Asolo, and to some degree Solomon all still make good outdoor footwear.

I personally wouldn't get a pair of hiking boots...

Boy, I'd hate to be a Dolphins fan today.....

Once in awhile being a Bills fan can be rewarding. Mostly though, its like watching a train derail.
