The solitude of a camping trip may be no more as you could have your picture taken by a high resolution camera on one of the military drones doing training flights out of Fort Drum.
The post is host to a surprising number of the hi tech devices used in Afghanistan and Pakistan to spy on and sometimes bomb adversaries.

While standing in a mountain stream, you might be watched by those in the bunker at Drum. Just don't be skinny dipping.
