I never knew there was 24/7 gas on Upper Saranac.

Any idea if that still exists? Hopefully it's high octane, ethanol-free.

Re: Site 3?

The ultimate setup would be having your own portable dock. I've seen people do it but I have no idea how much of a hassle it is to set one up.

I think campadk has one, maybe he can share what he does for his setup.

Re: Webcams for NY Lakes, Ponds & Rivers

I originally started this because I wanted to look on a webcam to see how crowded the boat launches were on any given day. I e-mailed DEC about this a few years ago, and never received a response. Funnily enough, I did notice a security camera installed on our local ramp (Sacandaga) shortly after I ...

Re: Site 3?

You'll be fine.

I usually do bow-out, one anchor off the bow and a shore stake off the stern.

Webcams for NY Lakes, Ponds & Rivers

I put together a list of webcams for most lakes, ponds and rivers in NY. Since the weather changes so quickly in the ADKs, I found it useful to check the webcam to see the actual conditions before heading out for the day. http://chrisleoonline.com/new-york-webcam/ I couldn't figure out how to copy a...

Re: Is a kayak/canoe REALLY a boat?

About misinformed, I have been run over by such a boat when in a sail canoe with the sail up by a what I would call a to large boat. It was operated by someone who thought traveling at high speeds across the ponds was a normal thing while pulling teenagers on skis. They also thought it was a good i...

Re: Is a kayak/canoe REALLY a boat?

Many times there are groups of day use people that just come in the park to paddle the creek. Though there are also people that could launch and land their craft at the picnic area they don't realize there is another way. If you have a boat that is 4000 lbs with a 200 hp engine, you are on the othe...

Re: Is a kayak/canoe REALLY a boat?

What you're referring to is boat ramp etiquette - an art unfortunately lost in today's generation. I think it's unreasonable to ask for kayakers to stay away from a boat ramp just because they are not registered. It is unethical for them to block the launch when tying their boat up, though. They sho...

I also find it hard to believe that they forgot to plug a cell tower in.

Fish Creek Pictures 1995-2003

Does anyone have pictures from Fish Creek in this era? My family had a red and white ski boat and I'm trying to find pictures of it, I thought maybe perhaps someone has a photo with it in the background.

Thanks!

Re: anyone camp yet in FCP?

They'll be out unless it's windy or raining. Threaded spigots. Don't be one of those people hooking their trailer up to the tap unless you have a Y attachment so I can get water too. Saw someone getting yelled at by the front desk guy because they blocked the exit while filling their fresh water tan...

Re: Verizon Cell Tower Forthcoming in Lake Clear

I had LTE (AT&T), two bars by the boat launch. Can't remember ever having LTE service up there before.
