Re: “The Ausable Club Is a High Peaks Haven

I worked at the Ausable Club years ago (1966 &1967), one year as a waitress in the Officer's Dining Room and the next year in the Main Dining Room. It was absolutely the 2 most memorable summers of my college years, even though we were required to work three meals a day, seven days a week. Indeed, the only reason I was not there my third summer of college was the fact that I was in a best friend's wedding and could not have the day off. It was magical waking up everyday with the view and the power of the mountains rising so closely and majestically in front of you. Every day was awe inspiring if only for that reason even though there were many more treasured memories woven in.

Re: “What a Waste: Human Poop Plagues the Adirondack High Peaks

Maybe when new hikers get confused on the message not to go off a trail to avoid trampling sensitive vegetation they forget it's ok to go off to fertilize it. I imagine some are afraid of sitting on poison ivy or sitting too close to someone else's poop or have heard a rumor that bears only poop in the woods. But honestly I cannot imagine anyone thinking it's ok to stop on the trail and squat there. They belong indoors with porcelain and stay away from the adks.

Re: “Hard-core Skiers Take to Uphilling the Slopes

"uphilling the slopes"? 'Uphilling'? What else is in the Seven Days dictionary: 'upflooring"? 'uprooming'? 'upparking'? Like, I have no like idea like what to make of like a word like 'uphilling'. SMH.

Re: “Hard-core Skiers Take to Uphilling the Slopes

I believe the statement "anyone can become a backcountry skier" is dangerous.

Re: “Exploring Vermont's New State Park: Taconic Mountains Ramble

The zen gardens were always a favorite spot to go during my time at Castleton. Even got to watch it snowing on mother's day from Zion Major one year. It's a gorgeous spot, I'm so glad it's be preserved as a state park!

Have been wanting to visit this new park for months. Dan's description might get me off my duff, finally.

Is there a link to the team's GoFundMe site for people who would like to donate?

Re: “Brooke Scatchard Introduces the Fat Bike Ski

One of my fondest winter memories was the year (winter of 1970) when Jay Peak was renting "ski-bobs" (bikes with a long ski under the seat and a short ski attached to the handlebars, plus two short skis for your boots and, most importantly, with a spring under the seat so you could leap moguls). Jay also allowed us to take these gadgets up the tram, so we could come roaring down black diamond trails in relative safety, even though we were far from expert skiers....for a ski mad 16-year-old, it simply could not have been much better !

Re: “Talon Scouting With a Vermont Falconer

Red-tailed hawks used for falconry are trapped as passage (juvenile) birds that have been living on their own for a few months, so they are not imprinted on humans.

Re: “Talon Scouting With a Vermont Falconer

I wish there was more information on whether or not these birds are subject to imprinting.

Re: “On the Field With Bill Lee, Red Sox Legend and Vermont Gubernatorial Candidate

Thank you for this reminder that Spaceman Bill Lee is running for Governor of Vermont during this election cycle. Had forgotten about this fact and had been wondering about who to vote for given neither Scott or Minter will gain my vote in the general election. At least now, in all seriousness, I have someone to vote for and that will be Bill Lee as well as the Liberty Union Party. Who knows, with Bill Lee's help, the party might break the threshold it needs to gain major party status within the state.

Re: “Pedaling the Rail Trail in Saranac Lake

We are so excited about our upcoming trip on the Rail Bikes. Our six-day Adirondack bicycle vacation will be using paved roads most of the time, but we can't wait to "ride the rails" in August!
