My favorite umbrella is a canoe, they really work well except for weighing 40 pounds. I've thought about carrying a regular umbrella but I think I would snag it on branches since my head sticks up...

I think many organizers will likely be holding off for now from announcing or booking people for group events for 2021 until it becomes clearer what the COVID-19 situation will be by then. It would...

My preference is for a rock that's at least twice as long as it is wide, so I can tie the rope directly around it without it slipping off too easily. Also I have found that rough or bumpy rocks are...

I've found that the key to successful throwing is making sure the rope is not tangled so it will fly up after the rock nicely, and finding a rock that will not slide out of the rope. I've always...

I had a mouse attack on my food bag way back in 2010, on my second Adirondack camping trip. On all ensuing trips I have had a metal jar lid about 3" in diameter on my paracord, I punched a hole in...

If everyone was left individually in charge of deciding what does and doesn't 'cause harm' I think we would soon descend into chaos. I believe it is important to have rules, even though they may...

I doubt that natural gas is available in much of the Adirondacks, but I could be wrong. Costs for heating are hard to predict, all of the fuels are commodities and are subject to wild fluctuations...

I think the SL that Woodly is referring to is Saranac L, which is in two counties in some way. I don't fully understand it, but I've run into references to that situation.

It's great to be able to narrow down and focus on specifics of each area. I hope you'll be able to find the place you're looking for.

I missed the third one somehow, but having viewed it now I agree with that sentiment too. It seems like festivals are a long way off, but I suppose it's all a matter of perspective.

Thanks for posting the link, it sounds like you both had a great time and I'm glad you were able to avoid the crowds. I fully agree with your first video statement, I can't swim fast or far at all. ...

It's very pretty work on the inside. Is it just me or is the center of the bottom of the canoe dished in? A canoe with a hogged keel line will be hard to turn and will handle oddly, they sometimes...

I've been giving a lot of thought to these kind of questions in the last couple of years. My situation is like yours in some ways, but different in others. My part time banjo making business has...

I haven't been to Round Lake myself, but it sounds like a nice area. In regard to whether you can tell if a site is occupied without disembarking I would say usually you can, but it may depend on...

My guess is that folks who have 180 million on hand would probably rather keep the riff-raff out than try to manage them (or should I say us) and promote good behavior. I'll be interested to see...

It sounds like a really nice trip, I hope you'll enjoy it. I made my first visit to the area last year and made a day trip from my campsite on Lows down to Lila and back. It was not too hard to go...

Your pictures are beautiful. I haven't been to Chub in several years, but it was one of my favorite spots back before I made a canoe and began going to wetter places. The rock is nice for swimming,...
