I am going to the Fingler Lakes Tin Can Rally this fall. Sorry I didn't post earlier..as it is sold out. You can still come to the park and walk around though. The 2nd Annual Rally will be held September 17-20th at Samspson State Park in Romulus, New York. The event is coordinator by the great Fletch who owns Fletcher's Trailer's in Trumansburg, NY...a great resource for tin cans.
In July I went to Devil's Tombstone which sits at the foot of Hunter Mountain in the Catskills (the second highest peak in the Catskills). It is a really basic campground that really only serves as a basecamp for hikers. There is no electric here at all, not even in the bathrooms, which are not flush toilets. I think if I want to hike here next summer I would go to North-South Lake Campground. The road the divides this campground is a bit noisy.
My sister loved my trailer so much, she went out and got her own tin can. She got hers on Ebay for about $400. I love the color's she chose. It is a 16 foot and it is amazing how big it is because it is taller. Hers is a 1964. She came up to Rollins Pond as well. She didn't have one of the nice lake front sites.
I have just been too busy camping and no time for blogging. This summer I have been travelling almost every other weekend. I just got back last weekend from my long trip to Rollins Pond in the Adirondacks. It was a great week, despite the pup getting a cold (kennel cough) and being unalble to hike up the big mountains. It doesn't make for a idyllic looking site, but I tarped over my awning and screen room, as the rains can be bad in the Dacks. It does keep a larger area dry.
