    North Lake NY single hangingly

    Only one person showed up...Me.

    All the way up it rained, but did I turn around? NOOOO. Gotta do this. I spent the last month moving from one apartment to another and working overtime no less. I needed a break.
    I left from work friday morning, went home, did some errands, thru some stuff in the car and took off. The directions that nothermark gave were right on the money. The camp road is passable for a Hundai Elantra, just be careful.
    Site 7 had a river running through it, so I went up the road a little more and ran across site 10. I set up my tarp first then my hammock. I'm hoping I can down load the pictures, but just looking at the pictures will prove that I was up for 24 hours.

    Tarp too high and the Hammock too low.


    Wow thats high.
    Lets take another look at it.
    ]

    Well enough about that. The wind was blowing the rain side ways...did I mention the tarp was too high?
    Lets take a look at that.

    These pictures were taken before I went to sleep too, do you think it would occure to me that the tarp was too high?



    Object lesson don't go camping when you are too tired.

    After I laid down there were quite a few trucks going by, hunting season opened today I think. I heard someone say as he drove by "hey thats a hammock!" Well, he could see it because my tarp was too high.

    Eventhough I had problems with the rain and wind my New River under quilt and snugpack sleeping bag I used for a top quilt kept me warm for most of the night. The only thing that got wet was my hammock and that was on one end.

    Oh and here is the view I had.


    The level of the lake was low eather for the winter level or the rains we were going to get.

    Well that is just about it, I didn't take any pictures of the aftermath. I just got up broke everything down and left.

    Interesting. I can't wait for the pictures. There was a small stream down the left border of site 7 when I was there. Is that what you are talking about or did it get big with the rain?

    Still working on the pictures, **** technology.

    There was a new stream right thru the center of site 7 between the road and the fire pit.

    OK now there is something to see

    I think I fixed the picture problem, huge pictures are better than no pictures.

    Much nicer with pics, thanks. Interesting about the stream. That was not there when I was. You would go across the stream and up the hill to get to the big clearing. Not so good.

    The clearing I think you are talking about, you would have to actually follow the stream to get to. But site 10 was good too.

    Normal size pictures would not load, and I tried it twice. But at least I got something on the forum. Yea. The foliage is past peak in the Adk. too much rain. The Beach trees tend to hold on to their leaves well into winter. Thank You.

    Next time, maybe in the spring. The tarp was big enough to reach the ground well next time I'll just take a nap before I go. Thank you.
