Yeah TCD, I read the amendment, I know what they are required to do, but the fact still remains they disturbed "sacred" ground. As Justin says, let's keep "forever wild", forever - not just when...

Not that I know of. Haskell Rd is easily avoided if you cut across private lands. There's only a small portion between Black River WF and West Canada Lakes Wilderness that one would have to cross...

Well technically from shore-to-shore you'd have to cross 28 and 8, but also if you needed to stay on public land, you'd have to cross Haskell Rd, I believe.

What are you talkin' about Willis? There's two public campgrounds on the lake, and access points all over if you have a canoe. If you have a motor boat there are marinas you can pay to launch from.

I think you can park at the Remsen falls parking area and that will cut off about 5 miles RT.

The gravel road is not gated during the summer and is very good to drive on. You can drive almost all...

What does it accomplish? And what did those videos accomplish? I didn't watch much but it seemed embarrassing. I feel bad for the beavers that had to hear that.

If you have an issue with how...

There are so many things wrong with these statements I can't help but say something.

Are there beaver ponds existent to the extent that humans cannot circumnavigate them?

If such a pond is...

:cool:



Or if you are really squeamish, a pack raft. Then you can float on your destination pond when you get there.

I guess that is true, TCD. I'm not sure it's been advertised anywhere that 5 Ponds is all that easy to negotiate, but perhaps someone not in the know would just look at a Nat Geo map and decide to...

I understand what you are saying, but I don't agree. There simply is no way for lesser used trails with lots of beaver activity to be maintained that well. If these trails were as well traveled as...

There are people who live in the area and update the trail conditions on facebook if you know where to look. It's not hard to find or figure out.

The problem is the expectation of always meeting one's goals. Does one always summit Everest if one tries? In this day and age of instant gratification, we expect everything to be easy and...

As you know, I do enjoy a nice, relaxing smoke of crack.

But alas, I haven't been to CRF in ages.

As long as you didn't have any marijuana or meth, you'd probably get a warning. I was actually serious about that in my other post (they'd probably ticket you for crack/cocaine as well, but...

It's not much of a trip, more a short day paddle.

You can't really start at Big Moose Lake because you pass through some private waters. I don't believe you can actually navigate the river...

Rode? :cool:

I wouldn't say education does NOTHING. Without it, it would probably be significantly worse as it does work on some. Then there are those who don't notice it and break the rules out...

I don't know the answer to your question, but perhaps it has something to do with the NPT which runs along the east side of Long Lake. That section would receive a fair bit of use due to that, but I...

This is always my tell-tale sign if I'm going to the right spot. If I don't feel spider webs someone beat me there and I'd best change my plans.

I notice this wherever I go.
