Just because we are a cmuenosr society I would say doesn't make that right. Killing is killing and I think we need to accept we kill and take life to eat. Vegetables seem to have the less potential of feeling pain and suffering from what we can tell, but the meat thing has no justification, it is taking life that we know can express pain, hurt and desires to live and has more complex thinking we are learning all the time then we have thought before. There are also ways to do quick (15 minutes) that is not frozen Pizza. We found there are great packaged Indian food packets (2 minutes to heat) and can be served over quinoi, very healthy and no meat. We found a balance I like. We eat vegetarian during the work week, weekends we eat meat, but work to get humanely raised and treated animals for a decent life for them. Even if you dont feel for the animal's pain and death, they shoot them full of steroids and antibiotics and that alone is a pretty good argument for your own health Were also spoiled in CA with great quality and affordable produce that is also organic since much is grown near by. Puts all Safeway produce (shipped international) to shame which most of tastes like cardboard.Do cats often pee on vegetables? I imagine dogs, but cats? Don't they usually like the ground and soft surfaces? What coffee? I don't want that coffee! I can tell a vegetarian who doesn't eat a balanced vegetarian diet. In other words, mostly eats carbs (grains) And some very heavy people dont eat meat due to the pure carb diet So not always fat = meat eater.Militant is on both ends. I meet militant inflexible meat eaters all the time and it is equally obnoxious. We also find catering to vegetarian and vegans to be pretty simple in the difficulties of life . I think we all whine a lot about pretty small changes or our laziness to flexibility to our routines >JR

We camped here on site A-20 from 7/23/05-7/30/05. The soil is sandy, which allows for good drainage after rain. We did not have a waterside site, but most sites are on the shore of the lake. What bothered me most about this trip though, was the incessant generator noise, mostly from the 40' land yachts that squeeze in there, and the motorboat and sea-doo noise all day and evening. This is a no-hookups facility, people; leave your TVs and microwaves and hairdryers off and enjoy nature - or go to KOA. The boats were less noticeable, but I was afraid to go too far toward the middle of the lake in our inflatable raft for fear of being run over. We've been to Rollins Pond a couple times and like it much better there. Also, the bathroom we used near our site smelled of stale urine all week, and was not well-lighted. Note to campground designers: Don't make bathroom floors and walls out of moisture-absorbing concrete. No, we didn't like it there and will not return. Cranberry Lake (last year) was much better, and we'll return there next time.

Beautiful scenery surrounding Fish Creek and Rollins Ponds. Almost all sites are located on the waterfront, under a canopy of mature pine trees and a front row seat to spectacular sunsets. The scent of fresh pine needles fill the air. Sites are a little too close together but this place is still worth going to. There is a paved road around the entire location that makes a great walking and bike trail. There are no hookups whatsoever, however you are permitted to run a portable generator for a couple of hours during the afternoons. There is also a dump station. Restrooms were very clean with pay showers ($0.25 per 5 minute shower.) No place on site to buy firewood unless a delivery truck makes some rounds through the park, but who knows when that might be. We found a private individual selling some in the nearby town of Tupper Lake for a reasonable price. Tons of area attractions including canoeing, hiking, mountain biking, scenic railroad, museums, shopping, winter Olympic facilities, etc. The Adirondack moutains are beautiful and a must see.
