Early Hots & Hams
Before you BBQ those hots and hams on Monday, cook up something fun to do away from your TV; Mets are ‘done’, no good Saturday night HBO movie and some nut is driving around Long Island knocking down poles, pulling electric and cable, so home is not an option.
So what options are on the table? Head out east for the Shinnecock Pow-wow, if you have a boat glide on over to the Huntington Lighthouse Music Fest, take in a street fair or 3…or forget about a planned event with crowds and just hit up a trail at Caumsett, Connetquot River or Caleb Smith State Park preserves!
We took a risk on last minute cancellation openings at Hither Hills in Montauk but will have to post about that in 2014 as no campsites were available. Shame on us, found out they book up 9 months in advance but its supposed to be great camping, movie nights and pickup baseball games out there.
So sorry fellow LI’ers, we took a risk and Brandon, Sofia and I drove up to Watkins Glen State Park up in the Finger Lakes and will spend a few days fishing at Seneca Lake, hiking the 400 foot-deep narrow Gorge behind one of the 19 waterfalls and cooking up some hots and hams early.
Happy Labor Day, loyal 1Quest readers!
Pic from the drive up yesterday to Watkins Glen; from a section of the Appalachian Trail at the Delaware Water Gap. Brandon wants me to take 6 months off of work and pull him out of school to do a thru-hike from George to Maine – the AT is 2186 long! When he turns 18 I’m down!
