All good things must come to an end and we had to leave our “vacation” home. But the memories will always remain and we have pictures to remember all the fun we had at Brant Lake.
Marti and I took our new Sea Eagle out several times and paddled a few miles around the lake.
We admire how New York State maintains the Adirondack Park, it keeps overbuilding out, the beautiful mountains intact and the pristine waters clear and inviting.
There are homes around the lake, they are tastefully placed and range from small bungalows to larger estates, but they are built with certain standards to blend in. This is one of the nicer homes on the lake with its own boat house. I could get used to living in a place like this as long as I had room to park the Journey.
Marti has been practicing the Linda Payne style of kayaking, she seems to be getting the hang of it.
We even had a passenger on the Sea Eagle for quite a while as we paddled around the lake.
My brothers brought their motorcycles up to. The roads through the mountains are lovely for riding. Gordy brought his Yamaha,
and Dave brought his Harley Electra Glide. I got a chance to put some serious miles on the Harley, it is quite a machine. Dave took my dad out for quite a few rides, which he really enjoyed. Dad had a couple of Harleys and Indians in his younger days.
No, we didn’t let him drive the Harley, he could do it, but at 90 years of age he might have a little trouble holding it up at a stop sign. I know I did. :c)
So we just let him drive around in his red convertible, (a Pontiac G-6 hardtop convertible). Quite the car for a “young” guy.
We had campfires every night and enjoyed the clear skies giving us amazing views of the stars. We even tried a new invention, a scoop of chocolate chip cookie dough added to the chocolate, marshmallow and graham crackers to improve on a S’more. We called it a S’mookie.
Of course, “children” around a campfire tend to get in trouble. Pretty soon, we were trying to bake cookies in the fire.
That didn’t work too good. Don’t ask how it tasted…
Saturday Marti and I departed and we headed down the New York State Thruway towards New Jersey. We always enjoy looking at other RVs on the road. We came across this one that blew our minds.
A Class C Gulfstream Endura (Gas Engine) heading south from Quebec.
This guy was towing a full size pickup truck with two jet skis (on some kind of rollers) and a rigid hull inflatable boat in racks on the truck. In the back of the motorhome he had an outboard motor hanging on a mount, on top he had a sailboat and a couple of paddle boards. What you can’t see in the picture is on the front he had a rack with several bicycles. Heaven knows what he had crammed inside.
He’d have given Howard Payne a stroke if he ever showed up to one of Howard’s RV weighing sessions.
We arrived at Corey and Amanda’s house in New Jersey to reunite with the Journey. We found a pleasant surprise waiting for us, but that will have to wait for the next post.
