Before it was officially the NFCT

I carried and paddled the entire NY section, actually starting some 35 miles to the west of the official beginning of the NCFT in Old Forge. I finished by crossing Cumberland Bay beyond Plattaburgh. It took exactly 7 days totaling 185 miles, including 62 miles of carries. The carries were not as bad as the deer flies and 90 degree heat that July!
The lower Saranac River doesn't have much water between the rocks in July, so there was a lot of extra carrying. Even so, the bottom of my Hornbeck took quite a beating and the hull is no longer as shiny as it was in photos taken at mile 0.
