We have an early 80s Sawyer as well, 17', Kevlar, the same green as the one in your photos TB. We have more "modern" canoes as well, but we've kept this as our "kids" boat. It's still better than...

I suggest you purchase a paddler's map and an accompanying guide book. There are just too many options that fit this criteria in the Adirondacks.

I'm more interested in what it would take for teachers to team up with the DEC and become gainfully employed over summer break as Stewards or AFRs.

All I get is they are asking for more Rangers.

I get that, to some degree, but I also think perhaps the job of Ranger should be a higher level job and they should have more...

A couple things I can think of:

LEOs are not widespread in the Adirondacks, but technically, if it's a town road, the town should enforce parking issues.
