The idea of a 'green' house is very interesting for sure. I lived in a passive solar house in Maine till I was 15 and someday if I get the chance to build a house I would want to make it passive...

I don't know which size your cart takes, but I'm wondering if it could be practical to carry a spare wheel somehow for those emergency moments in remote areas. I suppose on the other hand it would...

That sounds like a very frustrating experience. Do those tires use an inner tube? I imagine they would be very hard to repair while out and about. I hope you won't have to wait too long for...

My winter coat is black, it's one of those heavy duty nylon things that only comes in that color but never wears out. I do wear a red hat with it, so that might help a bit. Also all the boots I own...

The interior pictures look great. It must be a wonderful feeling to finally be in and get to experience the result of everything you were working on for so long.

Antsy is indeed the word. Next...

It looks like a handy improvement, and it's nice that you're still able to use the old thwart. That's great about the house, you must be very pleased to finally be in it. I'll look forward to...

I've only heard the bittern a few times to know what it was, but it's a really fun sound.

10 or 15 years ago we had a visit from a lady who was about 90 at the time and somewhat hard of hearing....

I've heard them in late summer/fall too, though not as often. Someone told me once that it's the young birds practicing so they'll be good at it in the spring, but that may not be true. I've heard...

We used to hear ruffed grouse a lot here 10 years ago, not so much now. They always sounded to me like someone about 100 yards away trying to start a lawn mower with a pull rope. The sound is not...

I have always launched from near the campground, at the end of the SW arm. It's not a bad paddle from there up the lake, and it's quite nice scenery. I have heard that it's possible to launch from...

I think it would be hard to carve out an exception to allow "searchers" to camp in an area and "non-searchers" not to, except in the case of an active search for a missing person that is being run by...

I mostly use synthetic heads, but occasionally goat or calf skin are requested. I feel no compunction about goat skin, having lived near goats for the last 19 years. Both goats and banjos can be...

Just a random fun fact: adirondackspruce.com is the website of a company in MO. I've bought fiddle soundboard wood from them a couple of times when I had customers that wanted "Adironadack" spruce,...

I have only visited Mt. Federica once so far, but I enjoyed the down trip off the trail much more than the up trip on the trail, and it was much shorter. The old dirt road part of the trail was...

I get the part about needing hiking experience, but diving? I never tried but I'm sure I would be terrible at it. I'd been looking forward to the CL50 as one of the things I want to try once I move...

I never saw or heard of that plant before, and I've never found an elderberry with thorns either, so I must have been lucky. I don't like elderberries fresh anyway, only cooked, so it sounds like it...

Elderberries in the Adirondacks?

I have been noticing where there are elderberries blooming in the last couple of weeks here, mostly in wet areas and on stream banks. They appear, grow for a few to ten years and then die out, so...

Stripperguy, that makes more sense than what I was thinking. I was imagining a truck that was designed to load and unload itself like a log truck.

Stripperguy, thanks for the pictures. Did you see what the truck was carrying, or set up to carry? It seems like something like that would be handy for picking up the old rails, but I don't know...
