I was up at camp this past weekend checking things out and doing a few small projects. While I cannot wait for spring and boats and good times I do love how nice and clean the place looks all covered in snow.
I took a quick trip to Iceland this past long weekend and it was stunning! With two young dudes of my own (2.5 years old and 15 months old) I have not been traveling as much as I like so even a five day mini-adventure was an absolute blast. While the northern lights ended up being elusive, we did experience limitless scenic views, hot springs, waterfalls, glaciers, friendly people and insanely good food. The fresh seafood was unreal and - please do not send hate mail because I already feel bad about it - we ate whale! (It was a surprise part of a nine-part tasting menu and it was delicious but for the sake of the whales I would not have chosen to order that.) See below for a few selected photos from our trip!
This weekend (February 9 and 10) I will be at the MasterCraft booth at the New England Boat Show. Stop by to check out all of the awesome new boats and toys and find me to chat about camp! The boat show is always a good time and a great excuse to get to the Boston Seaport.
See you there!
Happy New Year to all of our campers and friends! We have been busy these past few weeks assembling our new staff and helping parents sign kids up for camp. Paperwork is not always fun so I try to get to the lake and tinker around a few times a month during the winter. I was up there the other day and things are looking icy!
So far there is not much snow yet and, weirdly, the lake is still mostly unfrozen but there is a glaze over pretty much everything else!
Someone definitely appreciated the open water:
Hit us up any time!
This has been a weird fall. It started off with relentless rain. Then the leaves decided to fall about a day before the first big snowstorm. Then we got buried in snow. Now it is all melting away.
I made it to camp just before the first snow came to spend 14 hours raking, blowing tarping and dumping leaves from our three perfect acres of camp.
I finished up as the first flakes of snow were falling. Two weeks later and we have gone from perfect fluffy snow to a muddy, icy mix up there.
With warmer temps for the next few days I expect most of the snow up there to melt away before it eventually gets buried by late December/early January.
I did get a chance to take advantage of all of the late-November snow, though. I sent it up to Sunday River in Maine during a 20”+ storm and it did not disappoint! Endless knee-deep pow and zero lift lines make for some epic times!
The drive up there was a bit hectic though! The typically 2.5 hour trip took 4+ with various stretches of ice, slush, deep snow and snow plows doing their job.
Here’s to winter in New England! If winter isn’t your thing just count down the days until camp starts up again…(203 days from today).
