Here's a shot of my camp in the Adirondacks in NY. It's a modest estate consisting of 3 acres of nice hardwood forest complete with an outhouse and a hand pump, The chalet has full propane facilities...heat, lighting and refrigerator/freezer. Fishing abounds and almost any fresh water species one wants is within easy reach, all you have to do is pick which waterway you want to fish in.



This fine fleet of vessels make fishing fun and easy. The 14' aluminum boat complete with antique 3hp Johnson permits launching at canoe launches and speedy travel around the 'ponds' but it also idles down low enough for trolling. The canoe hasn't gotten much use since the motorboat got properly accessorized.



And when winter rolls around we have sled in, sled out facilities. Here is my favorite picture of the C7 trail up there during the best of conditions. Whew, that picture's yuuuuuuge.

Hey Byron, don't kick that ant hill or you'll lower the state's highest elevation point

I've come to realize I need to take more pictures of stuff in general. Can't find any decent pictures on my phone


May not be the best picture, but sums it up nicely, wife n me laying in the hammock while the kids play in the yard


And on a 7.3 related note

Here is the camper floorplan. I searched online but could not find the correct one, closest had the newer bathroom with corner shower so I started drawing it up. I need to take some measurements but this is very close.




Here is the thread about the remodel:

I can't use a post at the rear as it would block a vent door from opening.





Securing the front sheet of plywood before sliding the rear sheet into place. Need to borrow a small nailer to secure the paneling after I insulate. Still need to get some paneling to fill in the missing spot on the garage wall and make a wall at the rear of the loft. Not quite sure what I will do for that as it needs to fold down so I can lift up the loft floor to load bikes.



All I need to do to finish is add the wall the the rear of the loft. it will be 3/8 plywood and hinged to swing out of the way for lifting up. I also instaled gas struts for a fiberglass truck topper to make tipping the loft up easy and they hold it up for loading. 4 full size mx bikes and 2 kids mx bikes will fit in the back easily. Once loaded it will be back down level for transport. THe garage floor is 12" below the rest of the camper which helped to have enough height.

I don't have any pictures of my house which has a decent view but nothing compared to Sous, Tugly, BBslider001, and the likes. I do, however, have a picture after a fun weekend a few years ago...



I did not buy a 4x4 for the resale value! Most of the larger chunks fell off on the drive home. No matter how old I get I will always turn into a 16-year-old when I see mud.

Great images everyone! Keep them coming!

Again, does not have to be of anything in particular, just something that makes you smile a bit that you would like to share with us.

So you mean pictures of a favorite past time preferably with beautiful weather and back grounds?? I did use my 7.3 to get myself and boat to all these locations.








Next 2 are a couple of Bull Reds of about 40 caught over 3 days with Son and Bro-in-law. Also caught specs, jacks, flounder, sharks, etc. One of the best fish catching trips I can remember.

I love a good fish pic, do you keep any, Paul? And what's that long skinny one with the V tail?

I was thinking I would love a cabin in the woods with access to fishing in every direction

Mark I do occasionally keep some. All bass go back and obviously the carp are recreational only. The skinny one with V tail is a King Mackerel aka Smoker cause that's what they do to your reel when they hit. Really good eating. The big Reds usually go back but smaller ones in the cooler up to legal limit of course. Some of my favorite eating fish are Trout, Crappie, Grouper, snapper. Have always heard Walleye are awesome but have never had any. On the bucket list

While not the view from the back porch, its close! This is out along the river behind the house a mile or two where we like to go hiking. There is a natural hot spring at the top that runs down enough to soak your feet in after the hike. Right during the change from Winter to Spring we get quite a few moose around this area. The fishing along here is pretty good as well.

Idaho f250, what part of Idaho?

Spent a few years in Mountain Home when I was young and have some good memories of time on the South Fork of the Boise River below Anderson Ranch Dam.

Pretty Country when the sun is hitting the Rim rock.

We have family all the way from Boise to Orofino. We love the northern part of Idaho and down in the Challis area.

South East out by Rexburg. We moved up here about 5 years ago from Northern Cali and haven't regretted a second. Just have to get used to the wind and winter. My wife misses the shopping, but that I can live without.
I know that area by Anderson Ranch Reservoir well, I deer hunt up on the north fork of the Boise river by Steel Mountain and Rocky Bar.

More for the tractor and UTV, especially when the kids are driving. Odd thing to me was that was the copper portion.

My contribution is a shot of our home last week just after mowing the lawn. Bass, catfish, bream and some grass carp in the pond. No fishing license required because it is 100% on our property. When sitting in my leather recliner I am 25 feet from the water. The dock is a floating dock with two wooden chairs that are shaded by the large tree from about 10 AM on. We love our home and being there, but love camping as well.

We are country living and front porch sittin people, but can appreciate the beauty and wonder in all landscapes in our great country.

That view is worth seeing more than a few times. How are the bugs?

The view looking down my driveway, west towards the Rockies.

Zach, bugs are bad at all really. There is a stream that runs into one end of the pond and a stream that runs out the other end. So, the pond is always moving. Plus, the fish in the pond keep the bugs off the water, then the bats in the air keep the bugs out of the sky. Of course, right about sunset the bugs come out in force, so there is a 1-2 hour period where we go inside if we have been outside.

Keep the images coming!
