• Protect Your Camp While You Are Away

    Whether you own a seasonal or four season camp, cottage or vacation home it's important to keep your investment protected while you are away.

    Pipes - should be priority one. To prevent freezing or bursting set your temperature to at least 65 degrees and open the hot water faucets to just a drip.  The other option is to completely drain all lines at the end of the season. Should your pipes burst have the water turned off immediately and contact your insurance agent.

    Ice Dams and Unsalted Driveways - Clear the gutters to prevent ice buildup and have your walkways shoveled every storm.

    Trees - Falling tree limbs can puncture your roof. Be wary of overhanging branches and have them trimmed back.

    Roof - Buidup of snow over time can cause a roof to collapse.  Have snow removed from all buildings on a regular basis throughout the winter.  

    Having a friend or neighbor to watch your valuable property doesn't always mean prevention.  Friends and neighbors will check on your place at their convenience, hiring a Caretaker is a better option. A Caretaker makes this their priority.

  • Rocks


    Everywhere you look you see rocks. You find them everywhere.  There are so many rocks that we take them for granted.  The Adirondacks are full of rocks. We even have an entire area dedicated to hiking in and on rocks called the High Peaks. 

    To me rocks are awesome.  I love looking at rocks.  As I spend time in the woods I look for rocks that stand out.  Rocks can either be a symbol or landmark and I often wonder if the same rocks I'm looking at were a waypoint to some Indian war party or meeting point for a patrol of soldiers during the French and Indian War.

    Next time you visit the Adirondacks, just take a walk into a random piece of woods and look at the rocks, I think you'll see what I'm talking about.

  • Camps


    We find camps all over the Adirondacks. They come in all shapes, sizes and styles.  It's very rare to find an all season camp, mostly they're seasonal.  

    When the summer camps are being closed up another camp is opened.  This type of camp is known as Deer Camp or just Camp.  Camp, is a special place. It's a place where a fraternity of family, friends and new faces get together for 6 six weeks chasing the Whitetail Deer.  

    Today is November 14th with only 3 weeks left of the season.  Good luck and I hope you fill your tag.
