Big Brother, Little Sister

A few weeks ago, the family went upstate to rural Long Eddy New York for a weekend getaway with the Peake clan.

My friend Bruce’s father, Gary, has built quite a compound o n his 300-acre wilderness. It’s got a log cabin, an outhouse, two man-made ponds, a man-made lake, shooting targets, wilderness trails up the wazoo, and best of all a clubhouse complete with satellite TV and a keg on tap.

We slept in my new Mountain Hard Ware tent and it weathered a pretty strong rainstorm. I was on a camping trip a few years ago where my tent “failed” during a torrential downpour and the inside of the tent had puddles in it. It was a horrible night. Glad my Everest tent held up!

In a few weeks, we’re going camping with the Zingers and the Bortko’s so I’m looking forward to that.

Here, we see Antonio leading Serafina toward the clubhouse. There was a caged rattlesnake up there and I think they wanted to hear it get mad.
