Wishing......

All a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving Holiday!

Don't do like I have done way to many times and forget  to leave room for pie.

For those of you that may be in the Old Forge area  this weekend is Christmas on Main Street.  It's a fun event that is sure to kick start your holiday season.  www.adkchristmasonmain.com

    1. Bring water with you...
      ...mother nature was late with the free drink refills. :}

      But you wont need ice.

      Delete
    2. Just like eveyone else, we had a very dry summer. So mother nature didn't do much for keeping the water levels up. Also the water auth. needed water from the reservoir down stream and to top it off, there is also an eletric plant that feeds from this body of water. So the end results are what you see on the cam.

    1. HEAR THAT I WAS RIDING IN OLD FORGE in 1970 WHEN YOU PAYED 700.00 for a sled. it sure was nice back then.

      Delete
    2. I'm not trying to correct your message, but it's (paid) not payed.
      The average wage in 1970 was & 7,500.00 a year.
      So the average guy today has to make $85,000.00 just to stay even.

  35. Hey Steve, anything you can do to have the cam turned at the Infomation Building back toward the bridge would be much apreciated. Its one of the views we all look at this time of year for riding conditions....

    Looking forward to your reports!
