Are We There Yet?
RV Through the Adirondacks
I'm more of a glamper than a camper, too much dirt disturbs my neurotic senses but this summer is all about learning to rough it, a little, and share fun tips and useful stories or maybe it's the other way around.
Stay at Fish Creek Pond, it's even got an ironic name and it has really lovely campsites overlooking the pond. Walk over the highway and grab a canoe from the local rental and paddle back to camp.
There is an ice cream truck in the thick of the summer months that comes around to campsites and you can flag them down, in the rain as I did (hey, running through puddles is worth it for ice cream). My shoes were about as wet as when I kind of almost fell out of the canoe into the pond. But the ice cream is fun and it is always cute to see kids dragging their parents out to get them sugar.
Bring a good mat for rubbing mud off your shows so your RV (or quickly built twig cabin) doesn’t get filthy. The amount of dirt that will crawl its way up on you is astounding so come prepared and look around for the right mat.
Think about RV friendly meals. You can't have enough soup and grilled sandwiches. Hot dogs are a classic over the open fire pit. Powder mixes of hummus, falafel and pita bread are tasty and easy and don't take a lot of heat. Pasta can be made as a two pan dinner, just keep an eye on the propane it takes to boil water.
