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...

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...

After I posted I found their site on internet. They say they practice flying low to avoid radar. I say faster than sound because if you look where the jet noise is coming from you'll miss them.

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.

Ok, what's with the Military Jets?

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...

Your pictures have peaked my interest. I intend to check it out this week on bike. I had heard it was beautiful but your pictures have given me added incentive.

In order to take down large prey coyotes form in packs. I consider humans in that category and no single coyote is going to attack aggressively unless cornered. The video clearly shows a lone coyote...

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?

Halfway between Newcomb and Long Lake. I'm 1.5 miles back in. There are two swamps about a half mile away so that explains the Moose but not the bears or lack of Deer.

If there were a simpler way...

The ride to the Great Camp is one of my favorites. Did it about a month ago and noticed right away they fixed up the road. Gone were the sand traps in the middle of the road.

So that's what they are. Another mystery solved! I was thinking they were just mean houseflies. They are indeed worse then Deer-flies. At least I get the satisfaction of killing the deer-flies. ...
