Car camping!

Car camping gone bad!

Although I grew up in the Adirondacks, I car camped only a few times.  A couple of times was with my family, and once I went alone with my twins at Rollins Pond, when they were ten. I spent most of my time digging trenches around the tent due to the downpours, and when it cleared I was chasing after them on their bikes or keeping them out of the fire. Needless to say, it was stressfull! The plan was to stay five days — we stayed two nights!

Now that I am raising a family of my own, I've discovered that my need for routine has become apparent in every aspect of my life and it is rubbing off on my children.

Adirondack Insiders' Guide: Summer

Finding the best travel information

When I travel, I often find myself asking for advice from people that I meet along the way. It could be the night attendant at the lodging property, the local couple standing in line behind me at a coffee shop, or the waitress who is serving us lunch. As a result, I have discovered that the best advice doesn't necessarily always come from a printed travel guide. The locals themselves often hold the key to the best way to enjoy the area.
