I'd like to finally get around to paddling the Raquette from Long Lake to Tupper Lake.

Training for the Yukon 1000, so much of my paddling will be for marathon distance with crew... or solo when not. Long distances when able on weekends, a couple of hours solo after work otherwise. We will do several times on the Black River from Lyons Falls to Carthage, Oneida Lake, Saint Lawrence River, and will enter a number of local races.

I'll do another solo cannonball 90, and a couple of Hornbeck trips Stillwater into the 5 Ponds interior waters and elsewhere.

I was on Lila twice last summer. Is it ever not blowing with gale force winds and heavy rollers with whitecaps?

LOL. I remembered approaching Lila from Shingle Shanty and the wind was so fierce, I thought the current had changed! I have been on both Lila and LTL when they were very calm, but I guess it is rare. I think the time of day plays a part.

The first paddle trip I went on with my (now) fiancée's father... He took my to LTL. Not being a rookie to paddling it, I had a sinking suspicion he was testing my mettle on those rough rough waters There have been times where LTL had "higher seas" than did Lake Champlain on the ferry ride over. Totally unfair situation, here I'm in a little Hornbeck and these guys are in like 60-ish pound kayaks! ...Now if I just had to hike it into the woods

But... You're right, if you hit it early in the morning, it's at least better.

I usually do a couple trips early each year, one on the Lower Osgood and one on Little Tupper. The Lower Osgood (which I've only done twice, but plan to do again and again) to check my obstacle skills and LTL to make sure I'm doing ok "faring the seas". These are kind of my standard "conditioning" trips now. So those are on the docket for sure. As well as SRCW, which has kind of become standard fare (but, it's like a wicked good burger: It always fits the bill and is awesome).

You guys are already daydreaming well The only thing I really have in mind for next seasons is; speaking of such things... An out-and-back of the Lake Lila Traverse from LTL, now that they're taking out the wire on Shingle Shanty.

Now that I've got a light enough boat... I kind of have some "analysis paralysis" -- I'm like a little kid at a candy shop who sees so much good stuff, he can't make up his mind. Luckily: I have a good couple months to think about it

At least one ambitious trip planned...

I've got tentative plans to visit in June (yes, I know, BF season) to paddle the NFCT section down the Saranac River from Saranac Lake village to Plattsburg. Not sure if it will be with gear and camping along the way (camping opportunities appear scarce below Union Falls) or as a series of day trips without gear (to make the carries and rapids easier to deal with). Any advice in this regards is welcome.

We may also extend the trip right the hell across Champlain to Vermont while we're at it.

And for an encore, we may visit in September after Labor Day to do the Long Lake to Saranac Village stretch.

-rs

My tentative paddling plans:
- Lows Lake, spending 4-5 days with my sons exploring and fishing it
- Little Tupper & Rock Pond (at least 2 nights)
- Lake Lila (at least 2 nights)
- Long Pond, SRCA (at least 2 nights)
- The Oswegatchie to High Falls, taking enough time to do some fishing
- Jessup River to Indian Lake (day trip)
- Huckleberry Lake in Wolf Lake State Forest, spending a couple of days fishing it

May sound ambitious, but I get July & August off my bus driving job and work my own schedule in my taxidermy shop. Last summer I was blessed to be able to camp 25 nights!
