Greetings! Laura, here.
Should we take Heider, a Skidmore classmate of Dudley’s, to his aunt’s horse farm in Ghent, NY? Sure, why not.
Should we take time to tour her horse farm and see the 10 day old fillie? Sure, why not?
Should we head to the town of Hudson, like Heider’s aunt suggested, and sit in the plaza? Sure, why not?
Should we find a campsite for the night? We’re tired from the weekend and can’t make it to Pennsylvania. Sure, why not? (There’s an app for campsites!)
How about this site on the lake at Little Pond Campground in the Catskills. I see jumping fish, and abundance of trees, gorgeous views, and only 3 other campers. Sure, why not?
How about a run in the mountains and a left turn and –wow! 1000′ climb to Beaverkill Vista? Sure, why not?
(Is that poison ivy? I sure hope not.)
Shall we get lost on the run and return to camp at 7:30? Sure, why not?
Gettysburg is on our way to North Carolina. Should we stop at the national military site and take a tour? Sure, why not?
How about a campsite at the William Houck campground in Maryland? Sure, why not?
So we’re on a “Sure, why not?” adventure. Frankly, most of my days are 0% “Sure, why not?” It’s great to wing it.
Onward to the Blue Ridge Parkway tomorrow!
