something like wo hee ha or ho wee ha?

Nothing else similar listed in my collection of the “Discover the Southwestern Adirondacks” guidebooks, which has done a pretty good job with updates over the years.

Sounds like maybe Ha-De-Ron-Dah wilderness, although that is more west central Adirondacks. Also I'm not familiar with any roads with roadside sites near there.

that's the name I was thinking of!
your right doesn't have roadside campsites
for that Powley-Piseco Rd desattahr mentioned is more likely the campsites I was thinking of
I may have been getting the 2 confused

Seems like a stretch to get Ha-De-Ron-Dah from woheeha. I looked for a while and even considered it as a possibility, but did not think it sounded close enough. Besides, there is no road going through with campsites.

Its a lot easier to remember if you recall where the word "Adirondack" came from.This name was contemptuously bestowed by the Iroquois upon their rivals, the Algonquins, back in the early history of the Adirondacks. The guttural Iroquois pronunciation of this name sounded, to early white traders, like "Adirondack". Ha-De-Ron-Dah is the Anglicized word of the Iroquois name for "eater of trees". Sounds a bit like "Adirondack".

The name "Adirondacks" is an Anglicized version of the Mohawk ratirontaks, meaning "they eat trees", a derogatory name which the Mohawk historically applied to neighboring Algonquian-speaking tribes; when food was scarce, the Algonquians would eat the buds and bark of trees. Adirondack is also the Mohawk word for "porcupine" whose diet mainly consists of bark.

Haha same here, that was my first thought also but figured there has to be some confusion. That’ll be the new nickname I use for that area now for sure.

There's also roadside campsites at North Lake- that's a bit more strictly "southwest Adirondacks" that the Powley-Piseco Road: https://andyarthur.org/map-north-lake-reservior-2.html

Is it also possible that you're thinking of the town name Ohio? That town covers a good chunk of the southwestern Adirondacks. The above-mentioned North Lake campsites are also within the town of Ohio.

Kind of reminds me of an area I remember as a kid, it had a snowmobile trail through it & sounded something like “Ma Mem O Rees Chot”.

When Justin has to leave the woods, I expect a No-Wa-Na-Go.
