In the past I have focused on… Read More
My recent trip to the Adirondacks was a making plans and then adjusting on the fly. I like to have a sense of what I want to do on a trip or I tend to feel stuck. I’ll just spend the whole time looking at my guide books and maps trying to figure out what to do and never end up doing anything at all. To avoid getting stuck I like to… Read More

But when we emerged everything in our campsite was soggy. Despite putting everything we left out under our canopy. So we spent the day away from our campsite. We went out exploring the Adirondack region. One place we stopped was Buttermilk Falls in Long… Read More
We arrived at our campsite out in the Adirondacks. We set up and set out to relax. We don’t really do the sit back and relax thing very well for long periods of time. We stayed at our campsite the entire day except when I walked down to take this photo.
