ClosetNerd - nope - Upstate NY - Washington County - midway between Saratoga Springs, Glens Falls NY, and Bennington VT. Spend the better part the summers in my youth (and then some) around Cedar River Flow (my current avatar) and wilderness camping wherever a motorless lake was to be found. Most recently Lake Lila (that was my former avatar) and Little Tupper just north of Long Lake.
Done my fair share of snowmobiling (in a former life) around Indian Lake, Moose River Recreation Area and Old Forge. Beautiful!
Float plane ride out of Long Lake was $50.00 for Em and I (cuz we wanted to take a different route and view Lake Lila) truly a bargain - was end of last September/beginning of October. You get a true sense of the wilderness and remoteness of the region from the air. I'd highly recommend it if you've never done it. Smoothest landing/take-off ever!
nice to meet a fellow New Yorker (a real Upstate one!)
