  1. Nice presentation. ”Back in the day”…when you ran into someone on the trail it was a BIG thing and those people were way cool, (just like you).
    BEARS… I always liked a small compressed air boat horn as a last resort.
    Heck that even scares the boats, never mind a bear that has never heard it.
    Have fun hiking!

Shad’Toberfest Canceled

As you may have heard, Lambertville was devastated by flooding from Ida.
We decided to cancel Shad’Tober. The decision was not reached lightly. However, we could not burden the already stressed infrastructure of the City. The festival brings thousands of visitors to Lambertville and that burden would not help our City right now. The need in Lambertville is great with over half the homes in the City affected by Hurricane Ida’s unprecedented flooding. There are some people that will spend a year getting their house back to a livable condition and some who will never return to their beloved homes because of the severe damage they sustained. In light of this tragedy, we are working on a fundraiser to benefit those flood victims hit hardest by
Hurricane Ida. Stay tuned for details.
