I'm thinking hip boots should do me just fine. There is a creek near the end of the property and on government land, but my father insists it doesn't exist. Google maps says it does so I'll just have to make a more thourough exploration effort. There is an old gov trail but that seems to be the only solid pathway out there. Otherwise there a couple of islands covered in white pines. Google maps also shows some game trails it seems out there so I'll just have to go see what tracks are there.
Couldn't make it up this weekend and next weekend I graduate high school so it will be couple weeks before I can update on what I find. ( and don't worry, my compass, first aid kit, and knife are never without me out there!! )
