I think I can safely say that summer in the Adirondacks is my favorite vacation destination. My brother and both had a four day weekend for this July 4th, so decided to take advantage by heading up to Lake Placid once again to tackle another high peak. Mt. Colden now officially marks my 4th high

My brother and I went up to Lake Placid over the elongated holiday weekend. On Monday we did a fourteen mile loop hike to Mount Colden. That night, while fireworks went off in the distance, and the campsites around us blared music and drank beer, we were both firmly ensconced in our beds by approximately 7:30.
It’s been super rainy here the past few weeks, and I’m not going to lie, I’ve kind of been digging it. When you no longer have 2 months off every summer, and need to drag yourself into the office in the middle of the afternoon, rain can be a very good thing. It keeps me
I often bitch and moan about how much time I spend getting sucked into internet rabbit holes. You know the kind. You start by simply googling “great places to eat in the Catskills,” and the next thing you know you’ve spent 45 minutes on Frank Sinatra’s Wikipedia page. Just me? Liars. I’d say maybe 1/4
I’ve written about Lake Placid countless of times before. It’s definitely my favorite winter getaways, and probably my favorite repeat trip, just because there’s always something new to do, the town itself is so much fun to go out in, and the Adirondacks are so stupidly picturesque. I considered not even writing any posts about
Every year I make myself a list of weekend resolutions, and every year I set unrealistic goals that set me up for failure. Last year, I tried to be more realistic, but still set myself two separate posts of over 10 resolutions (some, which came with sub-resolutions). You could see them here and here. Every
I’ve been doing great this summer with actually doing the things I say I’m going to do. Case in point: I managed to finally make it up to Lake Placid during the summer, which I’ve been threatening since going up there for the first time four years ago. I had a weekend off this past August,
Well, I finally made it back to Lake Placid for Winter Fun Trip 2015-if you want to read about the 2012 or 2013 iterations, click here or here-I took a bit of a hiatus in 2014. Lake Placid is my favorite place for a winter trip for a couple of reasons: I like how
If you’ve ever even just glanced at my blog, it’s no secret that one of my favorite hobbies to push is cross-country skiing, mainly because it’s so accessible, it’s relatively cheap (once you buy skis), and Pennsylvania is a great place to explore via ski (when it snows that is). This year, however I’ve
So because every single year I do a recap of my New Year’s Resolutions and every year it’s an exercise in disappointment, I’m going to scale it down a bit this year and keep it completely reasonable, keeping in mind my actual budget (not what I wish my budget would be), the amount of time
