Happy New Year 2018

Yeah, I know haven't done hardly any blogging these days, with my 100 odd Adirondack Facebook pages. But Suckerberg and his minions banned me for a month there, so all I have left is this outlet. Been working like a fiend upgrading and adding Google banner ads to all my Adirondack sites to make some $. Finally, I managed to but on 12/31, instead of using lame old The stuff on the 8 & 3 sites need a serious rewrite to make the pages agree with the geography. Ok, ever since my medical malady last summer, things have been a bummer, since I haven't been driving since July, which put a serious crimp in all my Adirondack wandering.

Ohay, I haven't been blogging much

This is sort of a retro activity for me now with my gazillion Mark Suckerblurb Face Book pages, like Shephard Park. But I am up in Lake George now on this late spring day waiting for the broadleaf trees to actually show some leaves. But having fun camping our in SW Warrensburg anyways

Thanks God They Finally Got Those Prisoners

Too 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

Some cool Route 3 shots from last spring on the way to Plattsburgh

It was April 24 and there was still snow on the ground, The mountain is Whiteface, btw

Last Couple of Trips to Upper Fulton and Lower Hamilton Counties

for allegedly turkey hunting but I did clean up my favorite campsite pretty well.
Notice the new huge Stewarts on the corner of Main & Bridge Streets, the skate park and the big over done Northville Lake Placid trailhead sign in downtown Northville

New Adirondack Road Site

This 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 Down

Between 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 Plugs

I 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.
Remember when you change plugs to follow these simple steps:
  1. 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
  2. Remove the old plug with the appropriate socket, usually 5/8"
  3. Start the new plug by hand just by twisting the socket extension so the threads catch easily
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. If hte wires look old or the boots are shot, get new wires too

Still Blogging

Haven't touched this blog in a long time. Which is sad. I blame Facebook, like my for my 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

Finally Got Away Again

Back on the Road, To Lake George

Stayed 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

Latest Trips

Been a while since I last posted. Been on a lot of short trips up north and even north west and even to Old Forge/ Lot's of swimming and sunning in this summer heat, Thank god the drought broke. Though the water levels are still low, starting from the lame snowfall last winter Here are some good in-the-water shots of Piseco Lake
Also climbed big tall Hackensack Moutain in Warrensburg yesterday and took a good telephoto shot of the Adirondack Northway Exit 23

Latest Adventures

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

Latest Trips

Crown Point Lake Champlain Bridge
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.

The campsite there was in good shape but very soggy underneath. Pulling out of there I dug some ruts but went back to fill them in a bit

Still Kicking

I 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 Lately

Traveling 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 Changes

I 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 from the original So now is a redirect to 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,, which will soon become NY 73 and 86 to Lake Placid

Ballston Spa

Got a new page on my Northway site for Ballston Spa. All these years and I kept telling myself I would add it since it is right down the road from Saratoga Springs. Nothing too major, but what the heck?

Still Going

Lake GeorgeLake George

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.
