I don't go out in cold weather, but for general summer use I find a poncho works well on the bike or on foot, and even fairly well in the canoe. On my first several trips when I was biking and...

Who does SAR for missing threads? Do they use string and flagging like human SAR workers? Do they crawl through electronic swamps and and spruce thickets?

Creekwader, that's interesting that you got the oysters on a tree by the garden, ours are usually in shadier places. We only inoculated the oysters once, after that we have just gotten wild ones,...

Thank you all very much. Creekwader, you may be right about the identification, taxonomy is not my strong point by any means. We inoculated some aspen logs with oyster mushroom spawn around 12 or...

It sounds like a great trip. I can't seem to get into the album, probably because I'm not registered with Facebook. I hiked through that area in 2013 and visited most of the lakes, but it must be...

It's deja vu all over again: Indian Lake by bicycle with canoe 8/22-8/28

Some things don't seem to change, and one is that I always write more than I meant to in my trip reports. Here is a link to some pictures which tell the story in a less verbose fashion.

I'm sorry to hear about Jenny. I never met her in person but she seemed very nice in the videos and I'm sure you'll miss her.

I'm sorry, I should have been more specific. You're right, I meant the Cascade Lake near the hamlet of Eagle Bay, in the Pigeon Lake Wilderness Area. I've never set foot in the EHP, though I'm sure...

I have an old nylon stuff sack, but it's getting pretty worn out. I've used it for 10 years now and it was far from new when I started. I use a 50' piece of camo colored paracord with a metal jar...

That's great, good for them. I would think that late summer in New England should be extra nice after getting through the hotter weather further south.
