    I REMEMBER CAMPING ON SCHUYLER IN THE SUMMER OF 1938. WE CANOED FROM MY FATHER’S BOYS CAMP (CAMP HALFMOON) ON VALCOUR ISLAND NEXT DOOR. WE WERE IN FOUR CANOES WITH TWO COUNCILLORS, AND WERE HEADED UP THE LAKE TO TICONDEROGA, BUT THE WIND WAS SO STRONG FROM THE SOUTH, WE DIDN’T GET FAR – SIX MILES ACTUALLY. SPENDING THE NIGHT, IT WAS SO PLEASANT THAT WE STAYED A WEEK, BEING RESUPPLIED FROM THE CAMP. NOBODY WAS LIVING THERE AT THE TIME, BUT THERE WAS AN EMPTY HOUSE THAT WE EXPLORED, THERE WAS ALSO A HOLE NEAR IT THAT SEEMED TO BE VERY DEEP. WE SET UP TENTS ON THE RAISED AREA BEHIND THE STONE BEACH ON THE WEST SHORE. IT WAS A VERY NICE PLACE TO STAY, AND THE MEMORY HAS STAYED WITH ME ALL THESE YEARS, i WAS NINE YEARS OLD. I SPENT OVER TWENTY SUMMERS ON VALCOUR ISLAND – ABOUT 10 WEEKS EACH.
