I was an avid biker for 25 years. Each year I was able to increase my average MPH. Eventually age caught up with me and I simply did not/ could not summon the energy to go over 18 mph. At that point...

When I was having bear trouble 7 years ago I found them to be not very helpful. It was bad enough they blamed me (even though I pointed out I had not done anything different the previous 11 years...

This road holds memories for me. I really enjoy the seclusion and scenery but it holds one bad memory. About 10 years ago someone intentionally ran me off the road. Fortunately I heard him coming and...

I prefer the lower number that way I can brag to friends that 1.25% (5) of all Adirondack Moose are on my lease property.

Seriously I think this is a more accurate estimate. A drop of 600 moose is...

Thanks for resurrecting the thread. Just read my post from 5 1/2 years ago and I still agree with everything I said.

I'm right next door to the Minerva Club. In fact our lease is also with Upper Hudson Woodlands. A Camp down below me was thinking of demolishing and building a new structure. They were told that they...

Maybe it's older age but I feel real uncomfortable riding with traffic even with a wide shoulder. And the NYC "incident" didn't have a calming effect. To think I used to ride to Vermont, what the...

Heading up tomorrow but a week and a half ago I had Moose tracks right in front of Camp. I set up game camera again. Can't wait to see if I have pictures. For that matter I can't wait to see if I...

Nice story and pictures.
Henderson is one of my favorite lakes. I've canoed it. Walked to Preston ponds from it. Best of all I like biking from Newcomb to it. Very pretty area.

I think sightings are unreliable. Based on my game cameras I have way more Moose and Bears than deer. I know that's not true. I have dozens of bear and Moose photos yet my neighbors 1 mile away...

Couple of years ago I was in the Goodnow Mountain Fire Tower when they flew past. They flew in the valley between Goodnow and Windfall Mountain. Since both mountains are 2800 Feet tall I say the jets...

Had it been on the list I'd have voted for the stable fly. They were bad this weekend. Just think, the bite of a deer-fly with the quickness of a house fly. A marriage made in hell.

This past Thursday afternoon I was sitting in a lawn chair by my Camp when a military jet flew right over the top of me faster than speed of sound. Not much higher than the mountain I'm one. Within...

It's amazing what lurks under the cover of darkness. I'll never forget the first time I put a game camera in back of the house. I was shocked at all the nightly traffic. It was like Grand Central...

This poll has been going on for over 3 weeks and not one vote for noseeums? Is it because no one believes in them cause they're hard to see like Bigfoot?
