Muzzleloaders say thank you

I’m a past secretary for the New York State Muzzleloaders
Assoc. and was part of the Mountain Man Primitive
Encampment at Moose River Plains Wilderness area Columbus
Day weekend.
This was our eighteenth year camping there and
we all take the weather in stride. All in all we had a great time.
To thank a few: Ole Barn for a meal that held up to its reputation,
Murdocks for supplying our bathrooms, and John Levi
for our firewood. Hauling Blue Boys and fire wood five miles
back is a feat in itself, and greatly appreciated. Visits from
Rangers Bruce and Jake are something we’ve come to look forward
Thanks for the help at the hardware store to repair a broken
brake line and the grocery store for the last minute cold medicine.
Also for those of us (me) who are not so “primitive,”
thanks to Deer Meadows Motel for their usual great hospitality.
Last but not least, thanks to all the people that braved the cold
to come on visitors day to share a few stories with us. Some of
you have been coming for years and it’s great to see old friends.
Hope to see you next year!

Fulton, N.Y.
