Adirondack Kids® Book

If you want your children to learn about life in the Adirondacks, let me introduce you to a series of books I was fortunate to have caught, from a Twitter feed today, and I wanted to pass it along to you. The Adirondack Kids website is filled with chapter overviews, lesson ideas for teachers, and information about the authors.

There's also a tweet about a  Brand new Adirondack Kids Vlog-episode 6 w/school librarian in Copenhangen.

Dr. Edwin Ketchledge, December 29, 1924 - June 30, 2010

The following quote comes via Edwin's obituary "The proverbial bottom line for me is the simple truth that a man is not in full command of life if he cannot at least one day each week go fishing in his canoe, or go cross-country skiing, or go exploring a new mountain," Ketchledge wrote in 1989 in his notes.

I certainly did not know Edwin Ketchledge, but from what I've read, from his recent passing is that he was instrumental in preserving the Adirondacks. And now that I am an Adirondack Park enthusiast, I truly appreciate his sentiment. R.I.P., Dr. Ketchledge.

For more in depth information on Edwin's life and accomplishments, please visit the Adirondack Almanack.

Got fish? Get a License

If you want to fish in NYS YOU MUST obtain a fishing license. Although youngsters, up until the age of 16 need not apply.  As was the case with my son who caught a whopper yesterday!  Take a look.

In the Adirondacks, there are several places available to you, should you want to go fishing. The Indian Lake Chamber of Commerce is where I registered for mine.

"Cords in Blue"

I'm headed to Blue Mountain to stack more logs. My mom had 2-cords delivered a month ago and still they sit in front of the shed.
I need tips on how to make LOADING them into the shed, a little easier.
