Camping at Rollins Pond

Our first stop in the Adirondacks was Rollins Pond. We really like that the sites are wooded and on the water. We can keep the boats right at our campsite and paddle through a bunch of ponds that are connected to each other, sometimes with a carry through the woods. Most of these ponds don't have any motor boats on them which keeps them pretty amazing!

800+ miles

We're back from the trip to the Adirondacks that we were working so hard to get the Shasta ready for. The trip went really well. We ended up towing it over 800 miles and set up camp in 3 different locations over the course of the week. I was also able to get our homebuilt kayaks onto the car in a secure way that worked with the camper. Typically the boats would hang off the back too far for turning clearance so it became a bonus engineering project to work things out with the camper.

Camping at Sleepy Hollow!

We did it, just as a test run really. We towed the Shasta to a local campground about 30 miles away and stayed overnight. Tows well and made it there and back without any trouble. I do need to get the screen door to open and close a bit easier though,must have open and closed that door a few hundred times!

The real test starts next Saturday.
