Thinking about heading to the Adirondacks... never been there. Hiking and Kayaking would be the focus. Probably an affordable cabin. Just me and my Fiancee. Beginning phase of researching what to do.  Day hikes and more of vacation mode than anything, had a life changing 'event' and just want to let NATURE be our ' medicine'. Thanks. RANDY

You are on to something big Randy. The fall is a great time for a cabin or RV.

Randy, where in the Adirondacks? Its a big place and I may be able to help with part of it. I lived there for over ten yrs and started hiking there in 1970. I also just came back from a week there taking my oldest grandson on his first hike and climb and bushwack.

Oct in NY is hunting season so keep that in mind. The fall colors during the 1st week of Oct. should be brilliant.
