    That is all the Adirondack needs, more city, and rich people. The old peace and quiet charm of the Adirondack is slowly being chiseled away piece by piece. Money, money, money that’s what it is all about. Remember with more people comes traffic, garbage, and the destruction of the environment by them stomping all over the woods.

    My go to place on earth has been replaced with a upscale camping resort ? What happened to family values in nature’s environment . I don’t need someone to tell me how to relax (or pay more to do it). I enjoyed parking my RV or pitching a tent which is what camping is all about. Has our society lead to this ? Making it easier to not do some of physical chores which go with being outdoors. Less amenities more enjoying the great outdoors without help from outside corporate world.
