Cool story bro.

Glad your notion of making profit off of other people's folly makes you feel morally superior. :clap:

Piece of foam from a pool noodle would probably do it for the paddle. The fish pole might be best to tether to the canoe.

I know the paddle was a big success for my niece when she was small. You...

Pet peeve of mine too.

I realize some people's dogs are perfectly well behaved off a leash, but the issue is, if you have your dog on a leash, and that dog comes up to it, chances are the dog on...

Great post Richard! I agree!

SRCA is one of the more special places I've been in the Adirondacks. Something about the topography, which looks kind of flat from the mountain tops, but when you're...

Thanks - I think we have a few more obstacles than you, but I could be wrong. I'm pretty sure you'll be there soon.

Maybe optimistic but if this trip works out for you another really good place to base camp at is St Regis Pond. It’s a little bit more work to get to than long (paddle little clear and a fairly easy...

Ha - not a problem. Last time I was here was 5 years ago this summer and my wife was pregnant. So I'm more/less in the same boat as you... pun intended.

I understand the itch. We used to get...

Also I bet you'd have just as much fun carrying into the west side of Long Pond on Thursday and staying out there for the whole weekend.

This would mitigate some of your worries about finding a...

Well it sounds like you know what the kids are capable of.

And yes, compared to Lows, this area is not especially remote. Floodwood road and Rte 30 are never far away. I'd assume if you really...

Correct. I mentioned a bag but this is more precise.

Perhaps a moot point now, but you can buy local, which is good as long as it dry. The bags are treated and kiln dried, so they burn real well...

Oh geez - I'm sorry. Somehow I thought you said the kids were 5 and 8 :banghead:

With a 2 year old I'd definitely recommend the campground.

I have no idea actually. Of all the times I've been there, I've wanted and planned to climb LPM but I've never done it.

Every site I've stayed on Lows/Bog River has had a fire pit. You don't need to use them. I would definitely say use the stove and skip the fires if you can but every site I've looked at in this...
