Oxshoe with nephew & the Snake Eater

Went out to Oxshoe on the 14th for night. Absolutely GORGEOUS day. We drove up from Loudonville and got to the lean-to about 11:00. We cut a few standing dead trees before we had an easy meal of freeze-dried lasagna. By the way, the Silky Big Boy saws are absolutely amazing. A bit pricey at $90 or so, but cut through those softwoods like a hot knife through butter. Below is a pic of the folding two-handed one I use. After that, I set up my hammock and fell asleep with just some shorts and socks on. . . actually got a nice sunburn! While we were prepping dinner (homemade kielbasa and baked beans), my pup Orion managed to dig 2ft at the base of a tree and found a tasty garter snake. It got pretty cold at night - not temp reading but had to be low 30s or high 20s. A lot of critter movements at night. . . had the dog growling quite a bit which is unusual for him. I ended up breaking my saw blade, but I originally planned on leaving a bunch of dry wood for the next campers.

Cutting standing dead trees is against DEC regulations. Trees must be dead and down.

The fishing isn't very good if you cut standing trees and leave behind a fresh new stump for anyone to see.
