I'm stumped. I think I have an idea of the general region, but I can't quite pin it down.

There are a number of Dead Creeks, which don't help matters.

I have the heavier version of the Copper Spur UL1. I can't recall what it was called but they don't make it anymore.

I like the asymmetry of BA designs and maybe that's what I didn't like about...

I bought a MSR solo Hubba NX like the one pictured and returned it. I'm struggling to remember what I didn't like about it, but I bought a comparable Big Agnes model instead, which I like a lot.

I'm not calling anyone's tree id into question, but I'd be curious to know where there are significant stands of oak, as that is rare in the Adirondacks. And AFAIK, only red oak occasionally...

Really :eh?:

I'm not nearly as intimately familiar with this area as you are, but most of the Adirondack dome is pretty void of oaks.

Where are these "groves" and what species of oak are they?...

Totally different management strategies. One is intensive use, the other is wild forest.

Not sayin' the sites on LSL are good or bad, but they tend to try to keep the wild character more in tact...

I don't use the attachment system, but I've tried it. I'm not a fan. It has the same shortcomings as a bag if you move - you get all wadded up. Granted, the system mine has is not great (don't...

Actually a fair bit of USL shore is forest preserve. I don't have a percentage for you though. I've camped out there at the "old" sites, and they are really nice. Some are far, far, far better...

There's a difference between riding them on mountain bike (pedal only) approved trails and riding on roads where other motor vehicles operate. I believe it's only a matter of time (as stated above)...

Since Pandora's box has been opened, the real reason I believe there is such resentment for e-bikes in the mountain bike community is the hard fought advocacy that mountain bikes worked for and...

I actually don't know what the state regs are, but many local systems have banned e-bikes. They've been pretty clear about posting this at all the trailheads though and I've seen people drive in...

Said "mountains of PA" in the credits. Maybe Poconos?

Sounds good to me. Our deer population is already rampant. Maybe the coyotes will help control them more downstate where they are really over populated (I don't know much about Tug Hill). And FWIW...

There's no real evidence, and a single wolf cannot take down anything that large unless it's completely spent.

Most coyote I have seen in the Adirondacks are small, like 20-30 lbs. A large coyote...

Although invasive, I don't see the coyote as a problem. If anything they are filling a good niche. They aren't large and aggressive enough to be much of a bother for the things I mentioned,...
