ADK Forum Outings

Hey All,

Over the years I've watched enviously from the sidelines when Forum outings have been arranged and then discussed afterward. My schedule usually has me working on weekends, which, although it leads to my going on trips mid-week and enjoying some solitude, means I can't usually go when others can and often have to go solo.

I'm wondering if anyone has any interest in organizing a Forum trip in the early part of the week- I'm thinking Sunday, Monday, Tuesday. I know that eliminates most people with normal jobs. I'd like to go around the end of April or early May. My typical late spring ADK trip has always been a 5-8 mile hike in to nice spot near a lake or pond, and then basecamping a dayhiking from there, but I'm open to variations. I have some ideas for a few different destinations, but again, I'm open to other ideas as well. If anyone has interest in this, we can get more specific about time and destinations.

Good idea, April and May are busy months for me. But, I'm fortunate to have Monday's off and in the summer months am always looking for fellow paddlers or hikers to join me for an adventure. I live in the Lake George area and often head within a 1-2 hour drive for a day trip. I'm at home anywhere in the ADKs. Keep the ideas flowing and maybe some folks here can join in.

Interested yes, but as you noted work schedule gets in the way.

Yeah, I figured work would get in the way for most people on those days. Might have to shorten it to a quick overnight on Sunday, or just go solo like usual. The vid of you and Justin in the Ha-De-Ron-Dah has me thinking of going back there again. The Middle Settlement lean-to is a great camping spot that I generally avoid in the nicer weather months because of the easy access. Early/mid week during mud season would probably be OK though.
