Good Times in Hoel Pond

Tried to paddle Saturday around Hoel Pond this weekend, but spent most of the day in camp dealing with weather like this

A bad day in the Adirondacks is still better than a good day at work. Wish I were there dealing with it. I am sure that you had some Long Trail Ales to help the attitude adjustment.

Actually, it was 'Dark and Stormys' (Rum, Lime and Ginger Beer)

We did have a great time, not a lot of paddling, my 5-year-old grandson got to learn more about camping. This video is the 5th blast we took on Saturday.

We were on Indian Lake Saturday afternoon and night. We had two rounds of wind and rain while we were setting up our camp. Cleared in time for a nice campfire! Sunday morning was beautiful. Thanks for posting your video.

That was the last blast of the day, we also enjoyed a quiet night around the campfire and a leisurely breakfast on Sunday before loading out.

Did you build the trailer? Looks like a sweet combination of gear storage and ability to carry multiple boats.

I like the Kelley Kettle and the reflector oven.

I built the trailer on an old boat trailer frame.

I have the large and the smallest KKs and is not the only stove I take now.
The ROs were one of my best finds, $22 for two of them! We don't always bring with us.

a man after my own heart, with the Honda Element. I have had a 2004 model for about 2 years and love it as a camping rig.

Ours is also a '04, STD. We bought it a couple of years ago with only 54,000. It's a great running car.

If it's just me I take our Nisson Versa

I love camping at Hoel. When I go at iceout in April the Floodwood sites are usually not open yet and Clear Pond sites are waist deep in snow.

This and one last year were planned to get my now 6-year-old grandson and my city dweller son into the wood on a Base Camp trip. SRCA and SWCA offer a lot of variety for paddling with short carries.
