Every year, Heidi and I take a camping trip up to the Adirondacks. This year is the fourth year running, although we missed last year, as I was between jobs and couldn’t afford it. This year, we returned to our usual site, Forked Lake, where we will, as usual, stay at a boat-accessible-only campsite. That means we have to rent a canoe and use that to travel across the lake to get to our campsite – it’s not accessible by car. It’s a wonderful trip, and even if you don’t go to the Adirondacks, I highly recommend taking a outside of the city. It does wonders for the soul.
