    Ed's Canoe Parts

    Just wanted to plug a small shop, "Ed's Canoe Parts". I heard about him here, years ago I'm sure, and recently ordered an ash thwart from him. It came fast, and I'm pleased with it. Came pre-finished, which was unexpected... I'd have stained it before installation, but I like the 'white'...

    Lila Traverse question.

    I'm starting to pull together a couple ideas for this summer's pilgrimage to the 'Dacks, and am considering the Whitney Loop/Lila Traverse. A couple years ago, there was some sort of lawsuit going through the NYS court system involving the legality of paddling from Lilypad Pond to Mud Pond, and...
