I bought my first personal car last month, in preparation for (I hope) moving to Tupper Lake this year or next. Prior to that I have been a frequent cyclist but have (when needed) used a car that...

I am a Subaru owner, but I will never stoop so low as to have a dog, let alone take it to the woods.

I pulled our taps yesterday, last boil was last Monday. The buds are swelling here and a lot of the sap was running green with the warm weather last week. We had a good year, way better than last...

For an upcoming project I will need to read the name of the Au Sable river aloud, and I am wondering how the first part is pronounced in the area. My very limited knowledge of French would incline...

My canoe is about 14-1/2' long and 29" wide as I recall, but I can't move out of the center 1/3 of the hull without at least feeling like I'm going to tip it over. This may be poor balancing skills,...

I tapped a week ago yesterday, and have boiled twice so far, 5 quarts of syrup per boil from 38 taps. Our snow is melting fast here.

I did a maneuver once that seemed very similar to Hickoryskier's situation in the photo, except there was no canoe under me at the time. I had just stepped out, not realizing what happens when both...
