Frankly, not much will change as we are living a layback and simple life. We hope to enjoy lots more of the same life, i.e., hiking, BBQ's, simple outings, etc.
So, my next update will include possible Status Updates to include any/all new events, such as further visits by our son John and Anh this Fall.
The only events now foreseen will include a visit to NYC for Paulina's Mama's Annual Memorial and then our trip and vacation in Myrtle Beach, SC in November.
Some events such as our work on cleaning up the forest and timber trails will be posted in my YouTube library and FaceBook.
Our place in the Adirondacks is located on Schroon River and includes a camp with 2 houses and 8 other structures. We use the Main House for our purposes with the 2nd house available for our family visitors.
Many years ago, our place was a logging camp. Then, a family setup 2 homes. The parents lived in the main house and their son and his family lived in the 2nd house.
The campsite is now about 30 years old, and is a rustic, mid-century dated lifestyle. Both homes are only about 1,500 sq. ft. By comparison to our home in Tucson, the housing is very simple and basic.
Our Main House is our preference in that it includes 2 bedrooms and 1 bath plus a den and indoor/outdoor room. While the den includes a pull out bed in a couch, we only use it for our library and family room. The house, decks, and proximity to the river allows us to enjoy the summertime lifestyle.
Our Guest House includes 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, with a large outdoor deck off the kitchen. The furnishings are sparse but comfortable. The 2nd house is located just up our road and is closest to our "Jasmine's Meadow". Both homes have nice views of the forest which surrounds us.
Besides the streams and ponds, we've got 4+ acres on the river. The property is 1/5 the size of NYC's Central Park. The water and 149 acres of woods offer a relaxing and beautiful setting. We enjoy hiking it all, and seeing the wildlife and scenery. Check out the gallery below for a comprehensive tour of our home and property.
We enjoy hiking out and around our property, with stops for the ponds and streams to enjoy nature.
The Schroon river is just across the main road. We're especially happy with our river and the shady beach area. Our place on the river allows us swimming, hiking, rafting, fishing and simple relaxation in the shade.
This page includes a sample of our life and times at Schroon River. We hope you enjoy sharing our exploits and that you have a great summer too.

Wine And Food Festival
At the Wine & Food Festival in Lake George, NY: Distilleries, wineries/vinyards, and breweries abound in Upstate NYS! Toto had a chance to sample some mead, hard cider, vodka, whisky, and beer! (No interest in wines, hehe.).
