That's LOW tide.  Jeebus.  That's full-on best it gets for me.
Occaisionally we get a King Tide in November. This is four years ago, to the date.


It was knee deep, two feet minimum.

I'm in love with the chair.  Great report from the hinterlands.
Thanks tj, we keep trying. The notoriety of the chair is quite remarkable.

Those are the waxless backcountry version, really cool.
Don't ski the trees, ski the spaces between the trees.

Yes, good thing too, as that sinew wax is really hard to find these days. If anyone cares, the slowshoes are a 1952 "pickerel nose" style made by Snocraft Inc. in Norway, Maine. Mine have "U.S." stamped on them, which confirms they were military issue. According to the Internet, they were made for use in the Korean War. The two pairs I obtained came through a surplus jobber who bought the contents of a container that was discovered on a base in Nevada. They were like new when I got them 20 years ago, though the leather bindings had deteriorated to the point of being unusable.

On that local note, I spotted Captain Funkatelic the other day. Once again he's out roaming the woods...
