    I just returned from a week long canoe in deer hunt (no deer)on Low's Lake in NY's Adirondacks. I camped in my 8x10 wall tent that I had cut down to about 6x7, used a interior home made frame and a downsized wood stove for heat.
    I carried way too much "stuff", this type of trip was a first for me and I now know what I need and what I don't need.
    It was alot of fun but it gets dark early now, so alot of time was spent keeping warm around the stove in the evenings.
    Here are some pictures with captions to help tell the story of my week.

    Your tent looks very cozy, and its location is wonderful. Thanks for sharing the story.

    Nice pictures LJ, I only bring 2 Duluth Packs when I camp/trip during the warmer weather, but still not a single carry, that's pretty good packing there.
    To get the canoe thru the lower bog I dumped some gear and dragged, time for a new canvas anyway, so no worry.....
