    We have a ton of wood on the ground, seasoned but not cut up that the loggers didn't take out. We would much rather use that than risk helping a beetle hitch a ride to eat our trees.

    ===> Good advice! I will be bringing an axe, a hatchet, and two saws to help process firewood, and maybe build some woods furniture (table, etc). I can put the new SIL to work! Hehehe....

    Shackets is the name of the little grocery on the shore of newfound, but I think it is closed for the season now.

    Let me know if the Google map I posted above isn't working for you. There is several paragraphs of info with it and a picture of the logging road entrance , but it seems to be a little wonkey about showing all of the info on mobile devices. Click the pins.

    Anyone interested in hiking Mt. Cardigan on Sat afternoon? I am very familiar with the trails there. I live about 3 miles away and hike them regularly.
    My favorite hike is about 5 miles and starts at the AMC lodge which is about a mile from where we will be camping, goes ccw over Fire Screw Mt. which is a mile long ridge walk, and onto Mt. Cardigan than back down to the lodge. Or cw Cardigan to fire screw and back to the lodge.
    Or a lot of people just go the clark trail up and then back down the same way 4 miles round trip. I would rate the hike as "Slightly Moderate"
    P.S. I am a slow hiker and it takes about 4 hours to go around with a lunch break ontop. PM me if interested and bring your camera. The views are extreme.

    Exit 23 then left at the end of the exit. Rt 104W. AKA, Ragged Mountain Highway. Go 5 miles to Bristol (watch speed, bristol police are always along there) Go thru town of Bristol headed to Newfound Lake. When you come to the yellow caution light at newfound lake go left onto shore road. Go straight for about 2 miles and you will come to a 90* left corner. Go straight. Road will turn to dirt and you will go over a small wooden bridge. Stay on the dirt road and you will come to a split about 1/4 mile after the bridge. (Fresh Eggs) sign there. Head for the eggs. P.S. If you get lost just ask anyone how to get to the Mt. Cardigan AMC lodge. You will have to go by the fresh eggs sign no matter what.

    ===> If I find my Dutch Oven, I will be making fresh donuts ALA Nitehauk's recipe each morning. Will also be bringing coffee, eggs, and of COURSE, Bacon!!! Lotsa Bacon!

    Do we need a table there??? I might be able to bring a small 4 ft folder if necessary.

    Stealth camping is all fun and games until you have to take a dump.

    There are two picnic tables and ten of those plastic Adirondack chairs . There is a basic fire pit and a cast iron stove. Unfortunately the ground around the pit isn't super flat so you have to pick a spot for your chair carefully. That's one of those things on the list of projects to be done someday. In case of rain, the fifth wheel has a long awning and we have one of those Colman hexagonal shelter thingies.
