Stillwater

Don't recall there being any outhouses, or even 'thunder boxes', on any of these sites. I did find where someone left a bucket with a toilet seat on it out behind my site, but I don't believe there...

If I had a Hornbeck that weighed ~15 lbs I would consider it, but my kayak weighs about 50 lbs. I could always put it on wheels though, but how I got there, to me, is irrelevant unless it was...

re: Kunjumuk cave

Don't know the name of the road, but if paddling up Kunjumuk from Route 30, its the first bridge you come to, then get out and head east. It's about a quarter mile from the bridge, then about 100...

I usually donate stuff like that to a local Trout Unlimited chapter so they can sell it at annual flea markets or use it or a prize at fund-raising banquets, etc. You get a minor tax write off. I...

re: Stolen kayak

I always worry a bit when my kayaks are on my roof rack and if I should get those anti-theft straps or cables from Thule, etc. to help deter thieves. There are a couple gear swaps I saw posted on FB...

re: Poachers

It's weird, and probably jinxing myself, that I've NEVER been asked for my fishing license in NY or CT since I had to get one as a teenager(~40 years). I've seen ECO's drive right by me when I'm...
