    Worst Campsite Neighbors?

    I must admit, I was once the bad neighbor. In my early 20's there were 4 of us camping at a site and we may have been a bit loud. We got our pay back at 7 the next morning, when the couple at the next camp site unleashed their 3 kids on their big wheel tricycles, riding circles around our...

    Looking forward to our first hummingbird. We still have over a foot of snow on the ground and it's snowing right now in Wyoming county, NY. I guess it might be awhile.:D

    Describe your seasons and climate

    Living in the snow belt SE of Buffalo is not as much fun as it used to be. This year we have decided to become Snowbirds. We are easing into it, only spending 6 weeks on the Gulf Coast this year. Next year, probably 3-4 months. With the way NY taxes are, the SAFE act, and Cuomo, it may be...

    Gee Glenn, I'm 65 and my mother used to drink Carling's. I think it was because at 16 years old I still new a bad beer if I tasted it, and wouldn't steal any of hers.:D The most beer I've taken on a trip is 24. The beer I drink now is Coors water, I mean Coors Lite. I drink it because I get...

    Is there a free giveaway on this site?

    There seems to be quite a spike in visitors to this site. For months, when I logged in there was usually between 70-125 visitors. Recently when I log in there are around 200 visitors. The number of members remains stable, but visitors have gone way up. This seems too good to be true. Is...

    I have been a spin fisherman since I was about 2 years old, catching "Calicos" on Chautauqua Lake. I'm 65 now. We have a pond full of bluegills and largemouth that I hit 3-4 times a week, sometimes in a canoe, sometimes from shore. Our niece and nephew just retired and bought a home on the...

    Algonquin Park secret lake hotspot - Freedom of Information Act used to find identity

    If the government does not release the location to the filer, what's to keep Mr. Borger (or anyone that finds himself in this position in the future) from selling the info to the filer himself? This is in no way questioning Mr. Borger's integrity, it's a hypothetical question. You can put an...

    Trip "cut" short

    Actually, it was a camping/fishing trip at a drive in campsite. I stopped at one of those places that sell $5 squares of fire wood on the side of the road. It wasn't burning very well, so I decided to cut the pieces smaller. I was tapping it with an 18in. hatchet and a 4lb. sledge hammer...

    Trip "cut" short

    Took my Wenonah fisherman to Lewey Lake, NY to fish for a week. Second day while splitting wood, split my ankle instead to the tune of 19 stitches. Since I couldn't get the leg wet or dirty, I headed for home on Monday. The RN at the Primary Care center said I did a "great" job bandaging my...

    It is better to see bars and not need them, than to need bars and not see them.

    Was this divine intervention?

    I received an email from an auction house. There was an Epic GP kayak up for auction. I'm not in the market for a kayak but it looked to be brand new, so I thought I'd give it a shot. It looked to be made of the carbon innegra (sp) that swift uses. It came with a carbon seat(still had the...

    Arthritis increase linked to lack of physical activity...

    My wife is a retired RN. She was always a floor nurse who walked almost her entire shift. We hiked portions of the AT and did many hikes in the ADK. She now has arthritis in both her knees, wrists, fingers, and one ankle. The other ankle was replaced because of "Arthur" (her term). She...
