    Poll: How many years have you been paddling?

    I guess I got a late start being about 40 or so but 31 years of paddling has been a lot of fun!!

    Critter added insult to injury of the roll-top table

    I feel your pain, Chip. Last weekend I had a grey squirrel chew a hole in my critter proof (?), odor proof blue barrel. Not through the body, but through the edge of the lid and into the blue plastic. No food lost but it ruined the barrel. Regards, Dave

    Maps. What do you do with 'em?

    I love maps and charts. When I was a navigator on a ship I used to save the old charts when a new addition came out instead of throwing them away. They were all corrected manually and were usable. I kept them flat under my bunk mattress (rolling charts and maps is a no-no !). One dark and...

    Report on Adirondack gathering

    Sounds like a good time was had by most. I was on LTL the last week in Sep for 3 nights on site 2 and it was flat calm for 4 straight days!! Luck of the draw. Regards to all, Dave

    Actually I find the Pax a bit boring. The campsites are nice though.

    ​What have you forgotten on a trip?

    Glenn, The MH stuff will be fine. A recent story is that guys at the MH processing plant opened some that were over 30 years old, tested and then ate them. They were as good as the day they were made. I believe they no longer put expiration dates on the packages, just manufacturing dates...

    Hello from Maryland

    Welcome from another Marylander! Camping at the backcountry sites at Assateague is nice in the off season when the bugs are gone. The Patuxent River also has paddle - in campsites (reservations required). Both require that you pack in your fresh water as there are no sources available. Have fun...

    1921 Thompson/Hiawatha

    I have never seen the bottom interior finished like that. Was that common with particular builders or is that as unusual as it looks? Maybe it was an owner modification.

    Barrens build

    Pretty much all Wenonah canoes offered today have symmetrical rocker (those that actually have rocker!) and with few exceptions have asymmetrical sheer lines.

    ​Assateague backcountry paddling (and fall closure dates)

    A couple of us try to get a 3 day paddle in there between the closures and Christmas. I just got summoned for jury duty (federal court) for the month of December so I might not make it this year. Mike is right- this is the best time to camp in the Assateague backcountry.
