2018.08.05 19:45 ElysianDreams [CONFLICT] Operation Lancelot: Liberation of Northern Ethiopia

FLASH TRAFFIC COMMUNIQUÉ TO ALL UNITS AUSME AUETHCOM ADDIS ABABA FROM AUETHCOM BY ORDER OF AU PEACE AND SECURITY COUNCIL MESSAGE BEGINS 
From Lieutenant General Serena Kabeya (iKaaja Army), Commanding Officer, African Union Stabilisation Mission in Ethiopia
With the situation in Ethiopia rapidly deteriorating, resulting in the isolation of African Union troops in Asmara as well as the overrunning of numerous local army units loyal to Addis Ababa, AUETHCOM has been authorised to bring about a resolution to the North Ethiopian royalist insurrection through kinetic means. Your commands are to pacify the rebel-held region centred around Gondar and to bring Lideta Zera Yacob's monarchist insurrectionist forces to the negotiating table in compliance with the African Union's mandate to support the legal central government of Ethiopia.
All armed individuals or groups in the region are to be treated as lawful combatants, with all the privileges that entails. Any prisoners shall be kept for trial by civilian authorities at a later date.
Of immediate priority will be the relief and reinforcement of the Nigerian 801st Air Command isolated and surrounded at Asmara, along with the seizure of the Lake Tana region and the royalist capital at Gondar. The former is crucial to secure the largest source of water in Ethiopia and to prevent the royalist movement from affecting water security downstream of the Nile, while the latter will be a large symbolic victory against the monarchist rebels.
The bulk of AUSME's logistics will be centred around Addis Ababa International Airport, while Bahir Dar Airport on the shores of Lake Tana will be the main FOB for the northern campaign. Extant Ethiopian military stockpiles will be drawn upon to sustain Op. LANCELOT, thus reducing the stress that will be placed upon AUSME's supply chain by the rigours of conventional manoeuvre warfare.
You have your orders. Make it so.
FLASH TRAFFIC ORDERS OF THE DAY AU STABILISATION MISSION ETHIOPIA MESSAGE BEGINS 
Quote of the day: Strike an enemy once and for all. Let him cease to exist as a tribe or he will live to fly in your throat again.

Operation: Lancelot

Relieving Asmara

44 Parachute Regiment under Brig. Gen. David van Velden will execute a combat jump to the Nigerian 801st Air Command and 4th Air Cavalry Brigade under Brig. Gen. Nwabudike Okonkwo in Asmara, relying on surprise and air support from the offshore UKN Task Force GOTHIC. At the same time, 51 South African Seaborne Brigade under Brig. Gen. Vishnu Venkataraman will land at the port city of Massawa, capturing the harbour and permitting reinforcements to be sealifted to northern Ethiopia. Once Massawa is secure, 51 Brigade will push southwest along the P1 highway to relieve the troops at Asmara, while the 6ème Brigade Légère (Congolaise) commanded by Brig. Gen. Anne-Marie Mirindi will land at Massawa (both by sea and by air) to secure a line of supply.
Overall command of the Asmara theatre will be granted to Maj. Gen. Risala Anuru (iKaaja Army). Approximately 12,590 iKaajan troops have been dedicated to the relief of Asmara and its 5000-strong Nigerian 4th Air Cavalry Brigade garrison.

Liberating Mek'ele

The Nigerian 27th Motorised Brigade under Brig. Gen. Chika Uzochukwu, 8th Mechanised Brigade under Brig. Gen. Amarachi Uchie, and 2nd Motorised Brigade under Brig. Gen. Amarachi Uchie will be charged with the liberation of the Tigrayan capital of Mek'ele. Supported by 46 South African Motorised Brigade led by Brig. Gen. Adriaan Van Straaten, the Mek'ele operation will be a straight thrust north along Route 2 from Dessie parallel to the Afar Depression. Extensive air support will be provided by UKAF and NAF assets out of Hargeisa and Dessie-Kombolcha, a necessity given the push through over three hundred kilometres of highlands and mountain passes.
Overall command of the Mek'ele theatre will be granted to Lt. Gen. Benjamin Akande (Nigerian Army), with 20,620 personnel under arms.

Taking Gondar

As the capital of the royalist insurrection movement, the liberation of Gondar is the main objective of Op. LANCELOT. Given the relatively level terrain in the western Ethiopian plateau around Lake Tana, AU armoured formations will form the spearhead of the strike at Gondar. 45 South African Armoured Brigade under Brig. Gen. Alexandra Tshenolo along with the 1ère Brigade (malgache) légère led by Brig. Gen. Arsène Rajoarimanana will push northeast along Route 3 from Bahir Dar, while 71 Airmobile Brigade under Brig. Gen. Nyenyedzi Dumbutshena mounted in amphibious CC-152 Groot Otter aircraft will assault the lakeside city of Gorgora just south of Gondar.
Meanwhile, the Nigerian 2nd Armoured Brigade and 9th Mechanised Brigade led by Brig. Gen. Nkrumah Gyambibi and Brig. Gen. Rasheed Moutari respectively will circle around the west of Lake Tana, exploiting their mobility to encircle royalist troops and place pressure on Gondar from both sides.
The strike at Gondar will be managed by Lt. Gen. Serena Kabeya (iKaaja Army), with 25,480 troops being assigned to this objective.
In all cases, local forces loyal to Addis Ababa are expected to perform rear echelon security and mopping-up operations, as well as law enforcement and civilian pacification.

HQ: UPINGTON
Garrisoned in the northwestern mining town of Upington, 45 SA Armoured Brigade is heavy brigade, consisting of two tank regiments and three mechanised infantry battalions. Much like 42 & 43 SA Armoured Brigade, 45 Brigade is intended for rapid high-intensity manoeuvre warfare. This comes at a cost, however, with the high weight of its vehicles rendering it unsuited for deployment by air.

46 South African Motorised Brigade

HQ: JOHANNESBURG
Heavily equipped and well-trained, 46 SA Motorised Brigade is garrisoned in and around the Johannesburg metropolitan area - South Africa's largest urban agglomeration and one of the largest in the world. This brigade is optimised for low-intensity conflicts, nation-building, counter-insurgency, internal security, and reconnaissance. Consisting of three Mkhosini AFV-mounted infantry battalions and the Rooikat-equipped 2 Special Service Battalion, along with organic air defence and artillery elements, 46 Brigade is a highly flexible and capable force to be reckoned with.

51 South African Seaborne Brigade

HQ: CAPE TOWN
Garrisoned in the legislative capital of Cape Town, 51 SA Seaborne Brigade is roughly analogous to iKaaja's marines. These boys and girls are equipped with the Impisi IFV, and operate in tandem with the Union of iKaaja Navy's amphibious assault ships. Organic indirect fires, an attached armoured regiment, and air defence elements ensure that 51 Brigade can continue to fight even outside of the bubble of protection provided by the Navy, providing staying power and an offensive punch far above its weight class.

71 Airmobile Brigade

HQ: KITWE
Equipped with the CC-152 Groot Otter amphibious tactical transport, 71 Airmobile Brigade is outfitted as highly-mobile rapid response force. 71 Brigade consists of three light infantry battalions with organic support units, garrisoned in the city of Kitwe in central Zambia. The unit's mobility and tactical flexibility allows it to excel at unconventional warfare, although a lack of staying power and heavy weapons means that it cannot sustain high-intensity combat without support and relief from more conventional heavy units.

Based out of the Malagasy capital, the 1ère Brigade is a light primarily motorised force with a single mechanised battalion and an armoured reconnaissance squadron, along with two truck-mounted infantry battalions. An air cavalry squadron is also attached, a necessity given Madagascar's hostile terrain.

46 South African Motorised Brigade

HQ: JOHANNESBURG
Heavily equipped and well-trained, 46 SA Motorised Brigade is garrisoned in and around the Johannesburg metropolitan area - South Africa's largest urban agglomeration and one of the largest in the world. This brigade is optimised for low-intensity conflicts, nation-building, counter-insurgency, internal security, and reconnaissance. Consisting of three Mkhosini AFV-mounted infantry battalions and the Rooikat-equipped 2 Special Service Battalion, along with organic air defence and artillery elements, 46 Brigade is a highly flexible and capable force to be reckoned with.

51 South African Seaborne Brigade

HQ: CAPE TOWN
Garrisoned in the legislative capital of Cape Town, 51 SA Seaborne Brigade is roughly analogous to iKaaja's marines. These boys and girls are equipped with the Impisi IFV, and operate in tandem with the Union of iKaaja Navy's amphibious assault ships. Organic indirect fires, an attached armoured regiment, and air defence elements ensure that 51 Brigade can continue to fight even outside of the bubble of protection provided by the Navy, providing staying power and an offensive punch far above its weight class.

71 Airmobile Brigade

HQ: KITWE
Equipped with the CC-152 Groot Otter amphibious tactical transport, 71 Airmobile Brigade is outfitted as highly-mobile rapid response force. 71 Brigade consists of three light infantry battalions with organic support units, garrisoned in the city of Kitwe in central Zambia. The unit's mobility and tactical flexibility allows it to excel at unconventional warfare, although a lack of staying power and heavy weapons means that it cannot sustain high-intensity combat without support and relief from more conventional heavy units.

HQ: ANTANANARIVO
Based out of the Malagasy capital, the 1ère Brigade is a light primarily motorised force with a single mechanised battalion and an armoured reconnaissance squadron, along with two truck-mounted infantry battalions. An air cavalry squadron is also attached, a necessity given Madagascar's hostile terrain.

2018.04.29 23:16 rutgerslaw17 5 PROPERTY PRACTICE ESSAY ?s

QUESTION 1 Plaxico owns a large rural tract of wooded land in New Jersey, immediately adjacent to a large state forest. Although he is a notorious fan of semi-automatic handguns, Plaxico regularly hunts by bow-and-arrow. One day during the fall possum-hunting season, Plaxico scores a hit on a large possum, but the arrow does not immediately bring the possum down. Wounded, it runs off in the direction of the state forest; Plaxico pursues but falls behind while texting Coach Ryan and soon loses sight of the possum.Two traditional possum hunters, Delonte Sr. and Delonte Jr. are scouting out venues in the state forest in anticipation of an upcoming hunting trip with Junior’s college friends from St. Joseph’s University. Delonte Sr. is carrying his rifle, along with a scope to check his ability to see from various possible stand locations. While scouting, he encounters a remote, old-looking campsite that has two buildings (one for living and one that appears to be used as an outhouse). Out of one of the buildings emerges an old man who pulls a rifle on Delonte. Delonte Sr. throws his hands up and says “Sir, we’re just here scouting out the hunting season in the park. We mean no harm.” The old man replies, “Son, my name is Jeb. This is my land – we’ve been here since the war and we ain’t leaving, so if the police sent you, you can tell them that.” Confused, Delonte Sr. backs away, hands raised, until Jeb lowers his gun and returns inside. Suddenly the wounded possum, with a clearly visible arrow protruding from its side, staggers across a clearing in front of the outhouse at Jeb’s camp. Delonte Sr. quickly sizes up the situation and decides to end its suffering: He shoots the possum and it falls dead. As Delonte Sr. approaches the dead possum, he trips over a small fence hidden by grass and brush and falls, impaling himself on a fallen branch. Seriously injured, in severe pain, and believing he will die, he tells his son Delonte Jr. that he wants to “leave everything to him” and that he “should have wrote a will but never had a chance.” Before Junior is able to call for help, Delonte Sr. dies in his arms. A dirty and tired Plaxico, who has been following the possum’s tracks ever since he first wounded it (all the while dressed in sweatpants), soon arrives on the scene still carrying his hunting bow (and his Glock, of course) and remaining arrows.
Identify and evaluate the property rights arguments each of these parties might make respecting ownership of the possum, and any restrictions that might apply if they were awarded ownership. Assume that any NJ-specific statutes that we have discussed in class apply here.
QUESTION 2 On her 80th birthday, Aunt Betty resolved to dispose of her real estate holdings. She owned a vacation home on a lake in the state of Arcadia. In January 2000, she executed and delivered a deed of this building to her niece and nephew (who lived in Arcadia), reading as follows: I hereby grant my lake house [legal description inserted here] to Tom and Geri Smith jointly, and then to the survivor. [Signed] Betty R. Tom and Geri were excited to receive the property, which their aunt called “Toontown” because of her childhood love of comic books and cartoons. The house was considered “historic” and was frequently used as a location for fashion photo shoots, music videos, films and television shows. They visited it in February 2000 and made arrangements for a local real estate agent to begin managing the renting of the house as a filming location and dividing the profits between the siblings. At that time, Tom and Geri also agreed to share all expenses of operating the building equally.
As they walked around the house during their visit, they noticed an adjoining neighbor, Fred Flint, was constructing a wooden fence separating Toontown from his parcel. They chatted with him briefly and said, “That’s a nice fence. Thanks for building it.” Nothing further was said about the fence.
In January 2005, Geri made a successful appearance on the TV program “America’s Best Slam Dance Krew.” As a result, she was offered gigs dancing all over the country; she moved to Los Angeles to be closer to the “industry.” In February 2005, Tom discovered that the roof of the house was leaking and that the front porch was tilting. He hired a contractor and spent $30,000 replacing the entire roof and front porch. He then telephoned Geri and asked her to send him $15,000 as her share of the work, but she refused to pay anything, saying “You could have simply patched the leaks for a couple of hundred dollars and used cinder blocks to hold up the porch.” Angered by this response, Tom instructed the real estate agent to send all further collections from the use of the property as a film/photo location directly to Tom. Since that time, Tom has received $100,000 in gross rents, and has spent $60,000 on property taxes, insurance, maintenance, utilities, and other necessary operating expenses. Geri has received no rent and has paid none of the expenses. In October 2010, Tom discovered for the first time that the fence built by Fred Flint in 2000 was, in fact, constructed ten feet on Tom’s and Geri’s side of the property boundary. Flint has been mowing the lawn and maintaining shrubs on the ten-foot strip since he built the fence. When confronted by Tom, Flint admitted that the fence encroached on the adjoining property. “I knew it was over on your land when I built it,” he said. “I thought I just might get away with it when your aunt didn’t complain about it, and it looks like I did (womp, womp)!” Also last month, Geri was electrocuted and killed in a freak accident while attempting to upload to YouTube a video of her performing the “Who Runs The World? Girls!” choreography. She left no will, and her sole heir is her husband, George Jett, whom she met and married over the summer. Her estate has substantial assets and no liabilities.
Arcadia’s adverse possession statute reads: An action to recover title to or possession of real property shall be brought within ten years after the cause thereof accrued, but if a trespasser, at the time the cause thereof accrues, is aware of the trespass, then such an action may only be brought within fifteen years after the cause thereof accrued. Tom has consulted you and asked the following questions. Please provide your answers and state your reasoning.
(1) Who presently owns Toontown? (Disregard the ten-foot encroachment by Flint in this part of your answer.) (2) Is any money due from Tom to Geri’s estate, or from Geri’s estate to him? (3) Who presently owns the ten-foot strip on which Flint has encroached?
QUESTION 3
Three sisters, Sandra, Denise, and Vanessa together purchase a plot of land (known as Brookacre) as joint tenants with rights of survivorship. Brookacre is on the outskirts of the largest city in Arcadia and the sisters intend to eventually build a new subdivision full of cozy bungalow houses. Soon thereafter, Denise, the reckless sister, found herself in a tremendous amount of debt and, without telling her sisters, deeded her rights in Brookacre to Dwayne, her best friend from Hillman College. A short time later, Vanessa, the impressionable sister, died in a car accident with her secret husband, Dabnis Brickey. Vanessa’s last will and testament directed that all of Vanessa’s property be given to another sister, Rudy.
1(a).
(i) Who owns Brookacre and in what form? (In reaching your conclusion, you should trace the ownership of the property).
(ii) How would your answer change if the state allowed unmarried persons to hold as tenants by the entirety and the three sisters had taken title as tenants by the entirety?
1(b). Dwayne believes that his portion of the property would be more valuable if there were no co-owners. Should a court divide the property into separate pieces so that each owner can hold the separate title?
Assume that Dwayne eventually emerges as the owner of the southern half of Brookacre (Southern Brookacre) and Sandra emerges as the owner of the northern half of Brookacre (Northern Brookacre), both in fee simple absolute. The parties built a fence to demarcate the border between the two properties. Soon after the fence was built, a group of property activists (“Occupy Cotenant Estates!”) snuck onto the property and moved the fence ten feet to the north– a fact never noticed by Dwayne or Sandra. Over the next eleven years, Dwayne raised cattle on his portion of Brookacre. About five years into the eleven-year period, Sandra sold her interest to Rudy. Rudy is deployed to Afghanistan, and has only visited the property once in 11 years. Eventually Dwayne decided to sell Southern Brookacre to Bud, a mineral speculator. A pre-sale survey revealed that the fence was in the wrong location.
For the following questions, assume that Arcadia has adopted the trespass statute in Question 2. Arcadia has also retained the Rule Against Perpetuities.
1(c). Can Dwayne properly claim title to the extra ten-feet? As a policy matter, should Dwayne’s claims also extend to mineral rights below the surface of the earth? 1(d). Bud eventually purchases Dwayne’s property and quickly drills straight down for oil. Most of the oil deposit is pooled below Rudy’s property, but as Bud pumps oil out from under his land, the valuable liquid naturally flows in from Rudy’s side. By the time Rudy returns from her latest tour of duty in Afghanistan, most of the oil that had been under her land is extracted and sold by Bud. What legal arguments could Rudy use, if any, to obtain some compensation from Bud?
1(e). Eventually Rudy builds a bungalow house and begins to live on Northern Brookacre. Bud’s continued drilling annoys Rudy because of the constant noise and unsightly drilling equipment. The noise particularly upsets Rudy because of a rare medical condition that makes loud noises painful. (i) Can Rudy legally force Bud to stop drilling? (ii) Assuming that Bud & Rudy come to an agreement (i.e., Rudy will pay Bud to stop drilling), how would you advise Rudy to structure the deal in order to ensure that the drilling is permanently abated?
1(f). Rudy decided that she had been fighting with Bud for long enough and decided to use property law to encourage reconciliation. Rudy owns Northern Brookacre in fee simple absolute and made the following grant of Northern Brookacre “to my son Theo so long as he marries one of Bud’s daughters within five years of this grant, and if he ever obtains a divorce Northern Brookacre automatically transfers to my other son Peter.” At the time of the grant, Theo is aged 18 and unmarried; Peter is aged 31 and married; Bud has two daughters, both are married. Discuss the various estates granted by Rudy.
QUESTION 4 Our client (the one who likes to email us her instructions) is considering including the following language in her last will and testament. For each of the following, describe the interests for each of the involved parties (e.g., “Ms. Sidali has a life estate” or “Mr. Pun has a vested remainder in fee simple.”). Indicate whether the Rule Against Perpetuities applies; if so, please indicate whether it voids any interests.
  1. To A for life, then to B, but if B smokes on the property, then to C. Three months after the conveyance, B smokes on the property.
  2. To X for one year, then to Y for life, and then to Z subject to Z using the land only for possum breeding.
  3. O devises “to A for life, then to A’s children who turn 35.” At the time of O’s death, A has 2 children aged 38 and 49.
  4. O conveys “to X for life then to Y’s children who turn 18.” Y has no children.
  5. To A and her heirs so long as no country music is listened to on the property; if it is, then to David.
QUESTION 5 Yesterday, we received an email from a longstanding client of the firm, Jim Burke, attaching the article included here as Exhibit A. Burke wants to know if he “did the right thing” and whether he may have “slept on his rights.” Read the article and draft an email responding to our client’s concerns.
EXHIBIT A Trash on Lake Forest bank floor an endorsed check for $104K. It seemed like a silly thing, to pick up two pieces of paper on the waiting room floor at Northern Trust Bank on Deerpath in Lake Forest one late morning a couple of weeks ago. But the retired banking executive did it anyway. And was he in for a surprise. “One was an envelope. The other was a cashier’s check for $104,000 and change — and it was endorsed, so it was negotiable,” Jim Burke of Lake Forest said. The 65-year-old longtime Deerfield resident, who moved to Lake Forest 18 months ago, said what he found gave him pause, but he never considered walking away with the check. “At first, I was in a state of mild shock. Here it was, sitting here. You don’t find those kind of things every day,” Burke said. Coming quickly to his senses, Burke turned in the check to a bank officer and went on with his day. “I never thought of absconding with the money, even though I could use $104,000,” he said. “An extra $104,000 when you’re retired doesn’t hurt at all.”

2015.07.31 07:10 megaswell Tabling

Hi, all! I'm looking for suggestions on where to table for Bernie (that won't cost hundreds of dollars to reserve space). I'm in northern NJ but your suggestions can be used nationwide! Also, if people have experiences with potential issues (insurance comes to mind) that could inform me, that would be wonderful. I've only ever tabled for Girl Scouts (back in the day!) and animal rescues.
Any help would be much appreciated!

2011.07.03 21:17 PrettyCoolGuy Adirondack Trip Report!

Hey Campin' and Hikin'!
I just got back from 10 days in the Adirondacks. It was awesome!
I left home (Philly!) on 6/21 at about 5AM. Subway to the Amtrak Station. Amtrak to NYC and then the Adirondack train to Westport, NY, followed by a shuttle to Lake Placid. It took 11.5 hours! There were mechanical problems, so all my trains were delayed. That's cool though. I hit the northern end of the Northville-Placid trail at about 5 PM. I got hiking and made it to Wanika Falls just before nightfall. A beautiful campsite and a clear night. The trail was in great shape and the bugs weren't that bad.
The next day, I hiked down to Duck Hole. On the way, I passed by Moose Pond. It was raining hard when I got there, so I asked the nice girl who was in one of the lean-tos if I could join her. I thought I was happy to be in the lean-to, but I wasn't. The roof leaked horribly! Luckily, I had a silnylon tarp (more on that later) so I rigged that up to keep us dry. The next day, it was just RAINING. Pouring rain. I decided to take a rest day. In the afternoon I found an old, dented canoe. I asked the girl if she wanted to canoe. She did. Even better: she's good at steering. I'm not a serious canoeist and my J-stroke isn't so good. We also moved to the other, newish lean-to that did not have a leaky roof. I normally don't have campfires, but, since it was cold that night, it seemed like a good idea. It was.
After two days at Duck Hole, I decided to head over to Lake Colden. The trail from Duck Hole to Upper Works was intense! So much beaver activity! At times, the water was waist-deep! Needless to say, I got very wet and had a great time. I got to Lake Colden on a Friday afternoon. Not a great idea, but what can you do? It was packed! And raining! Happily, I found a lean-to occupied by a couple of college guys. We had a grand old time together and one of the guys agreed to hike up Iroquois the next day with me.
So on Saturday, we went up Iroquois. The 2-mile (and +2000' in elevation) trail from Lake Colden to the col between Boundary and Algonquin Mountains was super-intense! It was basically a stream the entire way. At times it was over our knees and even up to our waists. We past some hikers who were actually try to walk on top of rocks and small boulders in an attempt to stay dry. It was funny! I mean, think about all the extra energy they were using! And it wasn't even cold, either. It was in the high 60s, I think. We made it to Iroquois. It was cloudy, very windy, a little bit raining and COLD on the summit. So we didn't linger.
Sunday was "supposed to be nice". Well, I think we all know what that means. It rained. Nevertheless, I went up the Opalescent River to the Uphill Lean-to. It started to clear, so I made an attempt on Mount Redfield. When I got half-way up, it started to get DARK (this was at about 4:30), so I turned around. The last thing I need is to be on top of a high peak, alone, during a thunderstorm. Naturally, by the time I got back to the Lean-to (at around 5:30 or 6) it was sunny again. Of course! That night, I saw stars. Millions and millions of stars. Amazing.
Monday was a blue-sky day. I wanted to go up to Lake Tear of the Clouds, which is the source of the Hudson River. From there, I had a plan to go up Grey Peak, over to Marcy, down to 4-corners, up Skylight and then back to the lean-to by way of Lake Tear. Going up Grey was fine, but the (unmarked/unmaintained) trail from Grey to Marcy was way too overgrown. So I went back down to Lake Tear, and then up to Skylight. The trail from 4-corners to Skylight was a stream the whole way up to treeline. Fun times! The water was not as deep as it was going up Iroquois.
Tuesday was a pretty big day. I went up and over Marcy with a full-pack, around to Little Haystack and over to the site of the Snowbird lean-to. Guess what? They put up no-camping signs. OK. So then I had to take the Shorey Short-cut, which might be the worst trail in the High Peaks. Lots of steep hiking, TONS of rocks, washed out and not many views. At least there wasn't any blowdown! I made it to Slant Rock and the lean-to was full. I tried to set up my tarp, but it collapsed in a heavy rain storm. (I need to get better at this, or go back to using a tent). Fortunately, the folks in the Lean-to (a summer camp group) had an extra Eureka! Pup Tent, like what Boy Scouts used. They were nice enough to let me use it, so I didn't have to bivy under Slant Rock, which was my "plan".
Wednesday was basically my last day. It was sunny and nice. I hiked all the way down to the newly (this year) relocated Deer Brook Lean-to. The Lean-to used to be ON the trail. Now it is up a hill a bit in a much more private location. Even better: you no longer have to walk down a steep slope to access Deer Brook. I got there early (like noon) and just dried out my stuff. (It should go without saying, but I did indeed pick up some sweets at the Johns Brook Lodge. They had no brownies, but they did have some delicious carrot cake, at 50 cents a piece. I put in 2 dollars and took two pieces. I hope that wasn't too greedy, but I was so hungry and it was so good.)
On Thursday, I left. I went to the Noonmark Diner, where I had: coffee, 1/2 of a blueberry-crumb pie, bacon-egg-and-cheese on a hard roll and I also got a BLT to go. I took the rest of the pie with me. Then it was time for the suck! Bus to Albany. Bus to NYC. Walk to Penn Station. NJ Transit to Trenton. SEPTA to Philly. I left the Adirondacks at noon and got home at 11:30. FUN.
It was a great trip! The tarp is still a work-in-progress. The alcohol stove I bought was OK, but stopped working the last 2 days (the fuel absorbing pads got wet, maybe?). BUT, the SUPER-CAT stove that I MADE was (and is) AWESOME! I fucking love that stove! Make one! It is fun and easy! Also, I got no blisters. I love backpacking in Vibram 5 Fingers!
