Greetings from the Adirondacks!

It has been a while since I have last written but that does not mean I haven’t been busy. Seemingly time has flown by since the last flakes of winter melted into the greens of spring. As for paddling that has been somewhat quiet this year but back in July I was able to sneak away for an overnight canoe camping adventure in the Adirondacks with my friend Scott. We found this amazing campsite and pitched our tents for the night, the weather was absolutely perfect. During the overnight temperatures got down into the low 40’s which for me is perfect sleeping weather, I even brought wool socks. This was a relaxing adventure and just what the doctor ordered. Chef Ireland cooked some amazing steaks over the fire, we sipped a little Bearface whiskey and enjoyed a few New York State beers as well.

I’m headed for another Adirondack adventure next week as we head into two of my favorite months September and October.

In the essence of #tbt for your viewing pleasure is the video from my Youtube channel of this overnight canoe camping trip. As time allows I will post/write about other adventures that I have documented either in the past or current. I hope you all have enjoyed the summer as we inch closer to fall.

  1. Hey Joe, Great to have your update. I am jealous of your camping/canoeing expedition. Any treks to the Green Mountains? How’s your knees?


    • Greetings John!

      Possible visit to Vermont in October! Tore my meniscus in my left knee, and I have aa heel spur in my left foot which is into my achilles. Looking at possible surgery after the holidays. How have you been?


      • Wowsers, I had a heel spur, and orthotics in my footwear helped it. No fun when one of our bipedal appendages gives us grief! I have binocular vision now for the first time in five years! A very advanced cataract in my left eye got removed and an implant installed. I’m getting used to visual depth perception. There are times when seeing in 3D makes me nauseous😜! My late onset OPMD limits my life, but the brain is still good!😛
        How are Mike and Max and you better half Julie doing?
