Scott Stevens

Scott Stevens grew up in Lake Luzerne, and spent much of his childhood in the outdoors, hiking, camping and fishing. After spending four years at SUNY Oswego in Central New York, he couldn't wait to get back to the Adirondack Mountains! Currently living in Hudson Falls, a day in the woods is only a short drive away, and is always enticing at the end of the work week.

Scott began his quest to climb all 46 of the Adirondack high-peaks last summer, and will continue climbing this summer, and future summers, until he reaches this goal. He also truly enjoys trout fishing, and with the countless rivers, streams and ponds in the Adirondacks, who doesn't?

Read his blog as he explores the Adirondack Mountains on day hikes, over-night outings, and fishing trips this summer. He vows to keep you in the loop as he updates his gear, plans his trips, and hits the woods! Please, feel free to comment and share posts - as he does have some experience, there is always more to learn!

tipup_water.jpegMy father and most of his friends always have the same answer when somebody asks them, "how's the fishing?" They all reply, "the fishing is great, the catching isn't so good".

And they're right, fishing is great whether you catch anything or not. Catching fish definitely adds something to the experience, you feel like you've accomplished something, made some progress. However, catching nothing accomplishes something too. You learn what works and what doesn't. You learn who to fish with and who not to fish with. You learn where to fish and where not to fish.

I went fishing on both Saturday and Sunday mornings, at the same place, with different people.
I haven't had a chance to do much ice fishing yet this winter, and a lot of that has to do with the lack of ice. The smaller lakes in the area had enough ice last weekend, and I was out of town. Have any of you been having luck fishing through the ice this year?

I went to South Bay a couple weeks ago, it was my first time out this season. We caught a Northern Pike in about 20 feet of water, but didn't have much luck for the rest of the day.
Greetings, and Happy New Year!

I didn't write much last month, actually, I wrote very little last month. Work picked up quite a bit during the holidays, I was finishing up my last semester of school, and I was working on a little project that I couldn't write about until now. I know I know.. excuses, excuses. You're right, but I didn't want to spoil the Christmas surprise that I was working on in my free time.

I built a rustic style headboard for my girlfriend, Liz. It wasn't a complete surprise, she asked me for a rustic headboard, but the type of wood, the height, and the overall design was up to me, and I wanted that part to be a surprise. 

Have you ever built a piece of furniture? Read on so see how I did this and please, let me know of any tips/tricks that may improve any future furniture projects.
