Dust of the Boots and Enjoy the Wilderness
August 30, 2012 11:23 am ET
The Mars Rover has completed its tour of the Martian surface and photos are being beamed back of a foreign frontier wilderness. Looking craterous the landscape reminds viewers of camping under the stars. Here are three locations for a weekend trip that range from “weekend warrior” to “full Rambo.”
-Can’t Leave the Plumbing- Don your top hat and spend the weekend in a luxury log cabin that would make Honest Abe proud. Kerry Catskills offers a wide variety of weekend rentals that is sure to appease the whole family. With all the amenities of home you can relax on the couch and view the TV and the view like it’s “picture in picture.”
-I Once was a Cub Scout- Whittling badge when you were 6? Check! Knot tying badge? Double knot check! Remember how to put up a tent? With instructions! If you’re a little bit more comfortable with the wilderness and are looking to melt your work worries away, spend the weekend under the stars at one of Catskill Adventure Resort’s great campsites. Still not too from a flushable toilet, their campsites offer a cleanly stay that is four-legged friend friendly.
-The names Rambo…John Rambo- Do you ever watch Man vs. Wild and want to put your Bear Grills’ skills to the test? Join the experienced guides at the Wilderness Learning Center for classes in upstate New York in outdoor survival skills. Immerse yourself in the wilderness and you’ll soak up everything you need to survive even the most harrowing situation back in the Big Apple.
