    Let me know if you'd like to borrow some stuff or need a trail partner. I am either in the Adirondacks or on the Finger Lakes trail every month.

    I may take you up on that.. Most of my freinds and I car camp, and as a result most of my gear isnt back packing freindly, nor light. My goal is to have a complete set up by spring, or early summer at the latest.. Were abouts in the ADK do you go? Every year a bunch of us go for a week to the moose river area (car camping) I would like to take a few more trips up this year, try a couple 2 or 3 day hikes. Lots of beautifull country up that way, you cant truley get to see it all if you have to hike back to base camp everynight..

    I go all over. There are a few spots I revisit quite often, mostly just to explore the area. The 5 ponds wilderness and the Black River wild forest are two favorites. I will be up there next week for 3 days. (Have to be home for new years eve or the wife will kill me).

    Have fun, I wish I had some winter gear I know plenty of ppl with a decent amount of land (farmers mostly) that I could test my skills on a one or two nighter, before I venture off on state lands.. I feel like such a newbi when it comes to winter camping

    I'd probably be up for something in the Finger Lakes, although I'm not there my whole family is. I know a particular spot on the Finger Lakes trail that would be GREAT for a hammock hang although it's a fairly tough hike, imo... less than an hour each way IIRC but a lot of steep climbing. It's nearby Camp Cutler boy scout camp in South Bristol if that means anything to y'all.

    Can you get coordinates from GoogleMaps or the approximate location? I camp in a couple areas near the FLT, as it runs down through Ellicottville and Great Valley.
