Everybody loves lean-tos, right? But perhaps not as much as the fellow who goes by the name of Dsettahr in Adirondack Forum. He has compiled an Excel spreadsheet of every lean-to he could track down in the Adirondacks and Catskills—nearly three hundred—and his goal is to spend a night in each one.
We learned about Dsettahr from Jim Muller, an avid winter camper who sent us an article full of interesting information about lean-tos, including the original construction plans. You can read Jim’s article by clicking on the PDF link at the end of this item.
The links in the PDF don’t work, but if you click here you can access Dsettahr’s list of lean-tos.
