CampADK Trip Report - TearUp the ADK June 6-9, 2013

Postby CampADK » Fri Jun 07, 2013 8:44 am

Well the TearUp is off to a splash! Lots of trailers poured in yesterday... Can you say RAIN!?

Hasn't let up since late morning yesterday and it's a tad on the cool side. Needless to say a few campers zipped into town to buy Heater Buddies and propane bottles.

We had a laugh upon arrival as we drove over the bridge by the boat launch and a huge snapping turtle attempted suicide off the bridge. He did a backflip into the creek and created a huge canon ball sort of splash. Of course I whipped out the iPhone and videoed him.

Well back to holding an umbrella all day!

Well so far at least 40 hours of solid rain! This weekend reminds me of MemorialnWeekend with all the constant rain.

Alas, it has finally stopped... Who knows for how long.

TearUp campers enjoyed a great beer tasting night. Randy had lots of awning and canopy space and to keep everyone dry.

Hopefully we can sneak in a paddle before the next wave of rain hits lol.

Tonight is the wine and cheese / steal a gift evening, so hopefully the rain gives us a break.

Very few campers around besides the TearUp group. Maybe 10?

As usual, posting the odd photo on Fish Creek Live. Connection (both Verizon and AT&T) are pretty slow on this side of the pond.

Cheers from Site 235

Enjoy Bill!

We headed east following the rain. Here in desolate Pillsbury State Park near Lake Sunapee NH. Very rustic and on the remote side to say the least. A bit of a surprise lol.
