Thanks God They Finally Got Those PrisonersToo bad one was killed. But the dragnet was really playing havoc in my area. And where they finally found both of them was right off of good old NY 30, in Owls Head and Constable. Some idiot met me hiking up Giant and called the troopers on me last month. The first inspector just called me and apologized for the inconvenience of it. THen a week later two jerks showed up at my door to hassle me about zed. Well here are some pics from the last trip up there Elizabethtown and the Eastern Trail to Giant Mountain

New Adirondack Road SiteThis should really knock their socks off, NY Route 3, from Plattsburgh to Watertown. I already covered a lot of the road, from the Plattsburgh to Star lake on my NY 30 & Adk I-87 sites, so there is nothing very new or original. But I always really liked 3 as well as I might be able to drum up some Saranac Lake business with this venture. I plan on going up tomorrow and snap off a gazillion shots to spruce all my Dak sites up

The Leaves Are Coming DownBetween the recent rain and upcoming frosts, the last of the hardwoodtree leaves will be down in a week or two. Beautiful day yesterday as I took the Lake Desolation Edinburgh Bridge Route to my fave hideway in Benson via Northville Village. But the rain blew in last night, Honestly I planned on staying at least a whole day and half there without driving anywhere but the rain made me get in my car and go back down to Northville and Mayfield, where I am now working off the Mobile Station's wi-fi in comfort, mobile office. Also doing some business, half hearted, but I just don't want to get wet mucking around in the bush. Tomorrow is supposed to be cool and dry, so I am toughing it out here on 30 till the weather breaks.

Spark PlugsI do most of my own auto repair and maintenance with an eye for economy, thrift and most important, gas mileage. So if you change your plugs, use Bosch ® Platinum 4's. The 4 is for the 4 electrodes on each plug. They are simply the best plugs and not too expensive. You will soon recoup the extra 5 dollars in gas saving and performance.
- Twist the plug's boot around a bit on the old plug to loosen it, then gently pop the boot off the plug's top
- Remove the old plug with the appropriate socket, usually 5/8"
- Start the new plug by hand just by twisting the socket extension so the threads catch easily
- Put a little Vaseline or similar in the plug boot to keep out water, make it click in better and prevent them from sticking to the plug the next time you do this
- Make Sure the contact on the boot clicks into the top of the plug, Twist it around a few degrees each way to make sure
- If hte wires look old or the boots are shot, get new wires too

Still BloggingHaven't touched this blog in a long time. Which is sad. I blame Facebook, like my https://www.facebook.com/AdirondackNorthway for my AdirondackNorthway.com site. I also do blogs for SEO purposes to boost up various customer's sites I do. But I have been blogging for 12+ years and don't plan on quiting

Back on the Road, To Lake GeorgeStayed over in Lake George last week at the Nassau Motel, , my friend Ray lets me stay a few days here and there. Finally got some business up there after all these years. I guess I was too rustic for the boater crowd there, but off season you get to meet some of the more regular types. So I am going back there tomorrow for some more business, sites and even some ethernet wiring where I can use up some of the hundreds of feet of CAT 5A cable and connectors I have laying around here. I feel good now about this year. It looks like it won't be so murderously hot and dry like last year. Maybe the economy will tick up some more and things will perk up business wise

Haven't been very active in blogging lately. I have my Adirondack Northway Facebook page but personally I like blogs even though there is not much traffic compared to my FB page.
The season got off to an early start due to warm weather, but the last month haven't even been up there once. Went back to my old haunt in Benson due to a new customer's site I re-created AC Miller Southern Adirondack Real Estate, Homes, Properties, Lots

|Crown Point Lake Champlain Bridge.|
The unseasonable warm and dry weather gave me an early start this year. Last month I hung out in the Schroon River area for a while, finally venturing over to Vermont so I can get some shots of the new Crown Point Lake Champlain Bridge.

Still KickingI am still alive and kicking and so are my sites. Last week the so called hurricane brought a flurry of activity to my Adirondack Northway Facebook page. Ironically for a storm was supposed to devestate the coast, Eastern Adirondacks and especially Vermont got washed with floods.

Been Busy LatelyTraveling all around the Dak's
Earlier this month I was up in the wild forest along the Hudson north of Lake Luzerne. There are a bunch of primitive campsites along the dead end road, on the uphill side. We picked on fairly decent one, #9. There was a memorial plaque there for a young woman who died last year. Slowly the story came back to me. She was campinig there in a tent, when a wind storm blew a tree over on here tent, right there in our site, and killed her. Real sad. A peaceful weekend doing nothing dangerous but one of mother nature's more innocuous creations falls on her. The place was okay but the already flooded out and rutted road had to put up with the rafting bus making a trip every half hour up the road to drop more tubers off to float down.

More ChangesI ditched my old hosting account, Canaca, which I used for the last 7 years. They had become unreliable and expensive. Now you can get accounts for 6 dollars a month with unlimited databases and domains for the same money I was paying for 10 add-on domainss and 5 databases on an unreliable server. I took the time to change over the main domain name to www.AdirondackNorthway.com from the original www.AdirondackNorthway.net. So now www.AdirondackNorthway.net is a redirect to www.AdirondackNorthway.com instead of the reverse. Also moved the NYRoute28 and NY Route 30 sites over too. I got a domain to go with that new hosting account, highpeaksbyway.com, which will soon become NY 73 and 86 to Lake Placid

Up in Lake George Last Weekend
Took the weekend off to cash in on some free nights at my friend's motel, the Nassau in Lake George, no not in the lake, but the Town of Lake George. Took a great drive through Horicon to NY 8 then over Graphite Mountain down to Hague. It was blissfully low key as in this weather even the lumbering is at a stand still due to the thaw and mud, with NO tourist save a few day tripper to some party in the village.
