I'm not Justin, but I've been using Gaia GPS for 3-4 years now. It's very intuitive and provides a lot of available data.

Thanks Jburn,
I'm definitely not the best person to ask for advice on technology, but I use Expert GPS which works fine for my needs. Honestly, I only use a GPS (Garmin eTrex 20) for recording data, not for navigation, as I'm not exactly sure how to...Map & compass are much simpler.

Me too Jim.
It was there 2 years ago, but nowhere to be found last weekend, and I looked around for a while, even checked to see if it was in the creek.

Not far from the stone foundation there was a noticeable large flat area that was no doubt once used for some agriculture, with a few rock piles scattered & piled around the perimeter. I'm sure the plow was most likely horse or mule drawn back in the heyday. After all, there once were 4 different routes leading to the camp, one from each cardinal direction. More info about the camp and its history can also be found in this book: Discover the Southern Adirondacks.

It's now too bad that others can't see artifacts in the woods. I guess someone needed it more than everyone else.

It should be noted, and I'm pretty sure that removing historical artifacts from the Forest Preserve is a violation of DEC rules & regulations, but unfortunately I can't seem to find the proper link to the regulation at the moment...
Any help?

great trip report and pics, that's exactly the kind of exploring i like to do! hopefully you can get the puter to cooperate so we can all see the video.

shame about the plow, always amazing to me what some people will just abandon as junk in the woods, just so a 100 years later someone else can come along and call it treasure.

It's also against federal law as well. If you were to go to Forest Service, or other federal lands, you legally cannot remove items. I imagine that other states have similar laws to cover their own lands.
