Niki and I try to host a hot dog roasting party every Summer with our friends and family. Everyone brings a dish to pass and stories to share around the campfire. This year we were going to add a 2 mile tubing trip, for those that wanted to try it, down the Schroon River which borders the campground. However Mother Nature stepped in with an afternoon thunder and lightning show which gave us pause to rethink and postpone that adventure to another day.
Meanwhile the storm did let up and allow us all, Niki, Gary, Mike, Cathy, Dick, Sue, Mckayla, Anthony, Lester, Laura, Jackie, Barry, Ken, and myself to enjoy some good food and each others company for a few hours around the campfire.
We are in the process of developing a section on our website (snowbirdrvtrails.com) devoted to sharing information with others who are looking for a good campground job experience in a good working environment. It’s information that is currently missing on the Web that could be very helpful for any RVer contemplating any type of Workamping job.
If you have Workamped and would like to share your own comments with us – Where was it? Was it a good or bad experience and why? – we would appreciate your input.
We understand the need to not burn bridges and will not print names or email addresses from any contributors without permission.
Find more information and recent additions on our Workamping Reviews page at http://www.snowbirdrvtrails.com/workampingreviews.htm.
We hope to hear from you. Who knows – there might be information available on the next campground in which you are interested in working.
It has been a long time since either Niki or myself have been to the Drive-In. It is still fun and still 2 movies for the price of one (though that price has shot up with everything else). Both movies were quite good with the exception of the 4-letter words. Going to be a lot of bleeps when they hit the small screen!
You have to watch closely for the signs along Route 8 just West of the small Adirondack Town of Chestertown.
The narrow, paved road twists and turns about 2 miles up into the mountains from the main road.
On a clear day you can see forever or at least to the Gore Mountain Ski Area some 14 road miles to the West.
You know you are getting close as you begin passing cars parked along one side of the road for at least a half mile out.

Norman Rockwell’s home is a few miles out of town, just across the covered bridge over the Battenkill River
and past the little white church.
