Re: ADK

We did trail building on the new place over the weekend, had dinner with the neighbors and a retired priest who lives up there, chatted up a local electrician securing a mountain bike invitation, and got log home info in Plattsburgh. Busy fun. I probably need to do a rock photo journey through the place...

Ever feel like you're actions are being monitored?

Re: ADK

Pete is mucking around with the Avenza app. Here is the trail and actual house site over the old information.

The titanium coffee press got used a couple different ways. It seems to taste best when you pour the hot water over the grind rather than boiling everything cowboy style.

Re: ADK

There's a fire lookout tower on the property?  I don't remember you mentioning  that before.

Re: ADK

Lol! The guy who showed Pete how to use the app had apparently dropped that there and since it was on a tiny phone screen she never noticed. No tower.

Another Northern weekend...
The view from Iron Mountain towards Giant Mountain Wilderness. The trailhead is 2 miles from the new place.

Re: ADK

Weekend up North was very successful. I cut through the big falls which had been making the hill climb kinda tough. We installed facilities to handle the human business. We plotted our final section of river trail and relaxxxxxxxxed.

Re: ADK

The next mountain over is Otis. It's home to a once a year music festival and Sunday morning Dirt Church for the mountain bike community. I have secured my invitation.

I don't know, with all those stoned hippies you could see a outbreak of peace and nudity.

Forewarned is forearmed, just have a video camera ready so you can give us an accurate report.

Memorial Day Weekend: We roughed out the trail to the river. It turns out the path we chose makes for a nice walk.

Owls Head in The Giant Mountain Wilderness was spectacular.

I'm going to have to fund a study on that. Probably need signals and crosswalks as well.

Re: ADK

Super sandy soil drains really well. The bench cut also has a couple little drain areas just in case. It was still solid over the weekend when we got down to the river.

Re: ADK

We went winter camping this weekend at the ADK place and climbed Hurricane Mountain. Benny kissed a lot of Canadians on the trail, being our goodwill ambassador. They were on-leash almost all day but the final scramble works best when they pick their own lines.

My buddy fell off a roof and got airlifted to Albany so we had to pick up his car at the little medical center in Speculator. Since no good deed goes unpunished, here is the radar of what we drove through. lol Modern life is nice, we stopped the caravan during the white out and checked the radar. We took route 12 to Utica which got us out of the teeth of the thing. Summer tires check, unfamiliar car check, white out conditions check. My buddy is doing well, jaw wired shut is his biggest complaint but his wife seemed ok with it. ;) We received two loaves of some pretty amazing bread so I'd say it was worth it.
