Columbus Day Weekend

I booked late and got into Wilson Woods in the Catskills. The park was nice, but I was in the loop with all the others who don't plan far ahead....the young partiers and lovers. The beer drinkers were quieter than the lovers next door. It was a cold weekend hovering in the low 40s so I imagine you need to do something to keep warm. I used the furnace!

Hiked some great trails...Overlook Mountain and Tremper Mountain. Was a beautiful weekend. The fall color wasn't as far along as I would have thought.

Reserve America

Well my camper is all closed up for the winter. It was a great camping season. Now is the time to book NYS parks for 2011 season. Wow... is it hard to get the prime site in NYS. I was booted right out of July for my favorite place. I finally got a good site, but couldn't get the exact days in a row I wanted. I am not sure if everyone who is trying to book the site is using the internet...or calling in...or has an in through the state.

This summer's great new camping things

1. Solar outdoor string lights. I usually camp where there is no electricity. The solar lights are awesome for providing just enough light to get around and make the site kinda fun. Best part, the LED don't seem to attract bugs!
2. Super large tarp. For long trips, I got a super large tarp that covers the whole site... 20x30. It really was nice on the long trip when it rained.
3. Wood decking. I got wood decking tiles 2x2 feet. Just six of them. It made a great deck at the door step...and inside the outdoor shower. I got them at a Christmas Tree Shop.
4. Dahon folding bike. I really liked the folding bike....fits in the trailer and makes all the little trips so much faster.
5. Telescoping ladder. It is a real luxury... not used often...but the right tool for the job of putting up the tarp. Best way to get the lines up really high.
6. Large power pack. I got a Wagan power pack... the deluxe model. I was able to recharge it with my solar panel. Was great.
7. Osprey backpack. Love 2 sizes. Got the 35 cu size.

Getting ready for the last camp of the season. Columbus Day in the Catskills. Hope the leaves are at peak. Looking forward to the view from Hunter Mountain!

Rollins Pond, Adirondacks

Spent a week in the Adirondack at Rollins Pond. Rollins is easy access to the St. Regis Canoe Reservation, 18,000 acres of lakes, streams, ponds. The picture of the camper by itself was just before we left. We put up a HUGE tarp that covered our site. I got a telescoping ladder so we could get the tarp up high. I was great on the rainy days. Spent the trip either paddling or hiking. Went up to Avalanche Lake in the high peaks. Was just splendid and saw the remnants of a real avalanche.

Mongaup Pond, Catskills

Took a quick weekend in the Catskills. I knew the weather was going to be good, so we went with the minimal. I think having some type of
awning is always needed to keep the dew off of things. We saw a bear across water from our site. Mongaup has a lot of bears.

I got a Dahon folding bike. It is great for all those little trips. Also use
it for exercising the dogs.

Provincetown, MA

We took the camper out of New York and to the beach! Was quite a different camping experience on all counts. The sites were super small, but we had electric. We stayed at Coastal Acres. We were there at the end of July and it was pretty hot. I purchased a power pack that could charge anything and has a pump. It was really handy.

I hooked up my handheld shower so that it worked like a faucet. Hot water at the campsite is the best!

Summer Travels

Well, I have been neglectful. I have been really busy travelling. This summer has taken me to the Catskills and Hudson River to camp. A great addition this summer has been solar string lights. They are awesome. They are lcd lights and don't really attract bugs. I have a set that were xmas lights and just got some more for summer at Target. They are really worth the 20 bucks. Unfortunately I lost my camera after hiking Slide Mountain, the tallest mountain in the Catskills. I put the camera on the roof of my car and drove...oops. Well I wanted a new one and already replaced it with a little fuji. Love it...water proof and shock proof. These photos are from the Canon and Blackberry. A new addition this year has also been cots for the dogs..they love em and they stay a little cleaner. Next week I am off to Cape Cod for a week, the first time with shore power!!! Should be fun.

beer bottle tiki torch

here is a shot of the torch lit..but not in its tree hanger. This is when I first made it. I really like using tiki torches to keep the buggies away. ...but hate it when they used to spill. I simply have a jar that i store the wicks in and then seal the top. Works great...and no spills!!

Memorial day 2010

Went to North South Lake for a beautiful weekend in the Catskills. This time had a few new things. I had solar powered string lights which were awesome. Gave just enough light to get around. I also made tiki torches from grolsch beer bottles. It worked out great being able to travel with tiki torches.

I got a few new toys for this season. A folding bike, Dahon. A telescoping ladder. Wood decking for under the outdoor shower.

I will post photos this summer

Vintage Trailer 1963 13' Metzendorf - $4000 (Gatlinburg)

Reply to: [Errors when replying to ads?]

This is a very "sissy with sass" trailer decorated with a feminine touch. It currently sleeps one but can be made to sleep two. The Metzendorf was built in Ohio by a man named Metzendorf, using Amish labor. It is only 6'2" high, built to fit into a garage. The skin was pulled and all wood and beams from front to back were replaced. The sides were left with original closet and cabinets. Floor is new laminate. Remote control air is installed under the bed. All wiring redone and new outlets and wall lights added. New foam cushions. The trailer tires and spare are 3 yrs old. Bearings have been recently greased. The trailer was professionally painted with light mint green auto paint...most decorations on exterior are decals, but the street side has a custom painted scene of a Victorian Cowgirl getting on her horse. Everything pictured in the interior is included, and most of the items in the exterior picture, plus a reproduction vintage radio that also plays cds, records, cassettes. Please email me if you have any questions...I can also send you additional pictures of interior, exterior and info. Delivery may be an option.
