    Like jfb, I got mine at the Mountain Goat in Williamstown but it is no more.. I would think the Arcadian shop would have it or perhaps even the William's College bookstore, it is their outing's club, ya know... :) Jay

    Mt Greylock map

    I have all three, I have the DCR map, the AMC map, and the Williams Outing's Club map.. Despite being paper, I like the WOC map the best... They also have nice descriptions of the smaller peaks in the Taconic Range, their lands that they maintain and other nice short hikes in the northern...

    Taconic Crest Trail End-to-End

    haha, I know that steep descent north of berlin mtn! Was there any snow/ice in the Snow Hole? Nice obscure trip report in an area near me. I used to live just down the hill from the TCT south of Berry Pond, I'd take some woods roads and stuff occasionally up towards Tower mtn and West/Smith...

    Road near LOJ

    Correct, to expand on David's reply, the Adirondack Org's Firetower Challenge also has you hiking 5 of the 5 Catskill firetowers but that is not the same list as the 46er list (or the NE 115) As per the OP's other question, I presume you are talking about South Meadow Rd which has some popular...

    First trip to Adirondacks

    FYI: The ADK org does have 2 ? leantos across from JBL itself that is reservable, but for members and not free... But the normal leantos out and around the park are not as mentioned already. Jay

    Garmin Repair / Customer Service

    ha, yeah this is garmin's flat fee service charge, which it seems they still do. I had an old b&w etrex many years ago which broke the clickstick and garmin wanted $125 or something like that to "repair". I simply took a pin and a glue gun and drive the pin into the nub so I could still use the...

    Osceola Advice Please

    I agree with Mike that if you have an old MTB to lock up at the end, you can bike back to your start on tripoli road. Jay

    Smallest lightest bear canister

    Probably better off in the NY QnA but this link might be of interest: don't forget about the regional differences and date range. The canister regs are only in the Eastern High Peaks and some 4krs and many parts of the ADKs fall outside the Eastern HPs...

    Need Catskill trip-planning advice

    If you backpack to tremper, there are two leantos on the mtn. They're kind of beatup but I believe totally functional although I am not sure if the one at the top has a water source and if the one at the bottom has a reliable one... Jay

    Need Catskill trip-planning advice

    might also check the reservation minimums on a weekend, sounds like you want to camp at WV on a fri night.. Might just make sure you can stay one night only, NY has some ugly rules about DEC campgrounds for summer weekends and a horrible reservation fee charge... Thursday at noon, hunter loop...
