    Ampersand Mountain 7/03/15

    We did that hike a couple years ago when we were staying on an island in Saranac lake. Nice bit of a climb on the way up the mtn. BUT... That long trail to it is boring as hell. We felt as though we were on an ant line on the way up, so many people ahead n behind us all the way up. I guess in...

    Five hikers rescued from High Peaks

    Urinating on eachother just doesn't make any sence at all. Being wet is the worst thing of all in a cold climate. Now if they had pissed in a zip loc or a bottle n used it as a heater to reclaim heat without the wetness, that might work much better n also preserve that nice fresh smell of...
