I’m not sure how this happened but I don’t believe I’ve mentioned my parents new haven here yet. A few years back we lost our second camp (also not mentioned her as of yet) to a leasing issue and my parents decided they’d had enough. Next time, they’d buy one. For about two years, my family had been on the market. They hadn’t been actively looking, but things had cropped up here and there without anything very enticing.
Last summer things changed. My father heard about this little camp on a somewhat large privately owned club that was up for sale. I’m not sure what it was exactly but something caught his eye so he high-tailed it up there to check it out and liked it so much that he brought my mother up a few days later.
They had actually seen the ad for the same camp the previous fall but thought it was overpriced. After a winter of not selling the price fell and after seeing the ad for the second time they are now the proud new owners of their own little slice of the Adirondack Pie.
A little over a year later and the camp has given us many new friends, one nice Buck, a new four-wheeler, a few thousand miles on the snowmobiles, 2 tired puppies, and too many feasts to count.
As the second year of ownership begins, we’re (almost) done with first major camp project. A nice big Toy Shed to keep everything dry. Now it’s time to relax, shoot some bucks, enjoy the camp over the winter and prep for next year.
The camp is perfect size for two people, but when you add another two (or three) and some huskies, it gets a little cramped. Next year we plan to more than double the size, two new bed rooms and a larger living space later and we should be all set.
Can’t wait. I love spending time up there almost as much as my father does.
