Actually now that you mention that, I should have done exactly that -- pulled it out and left it next to the toilet in hopes that the DEC would grab it.

Oh man, it was actually surprisingly crowded. Not necessarily on the water, but we worked our way around the lake from site to site to site and all were occupied. We eventually landed at site #13...

Welcome back. Curious to hear about the portage from Low's Lake to Big Deer and onto the Oswegtachie. (My wife and I are doing that the week after next.) Also, where'd you end up camping on Low's...
