Hobbies: Former “Vanity Fair” Editor Graydon Carter With His 1951 Chevrolet Woodie (WSJ)

From a Wall Street Journal article by A.J. Baime:

There was something wonderful and free-wheeling about the experience. There was no air-conditioning, no seat belts, and theride was rickety, so my kids would bounce around in back. The car was built beforeinterstate highways, and it doesn’t go over40 mph. It was also among the firstgeneration of cars with an automatic transmission. The previous owner kept aninstruction manual tucked into the visor onhow to use the automatic, which is kind of funny.

Top Campsites: Cranberry Lake Campground, NY, Features Remote Beauty Of Adirondacks

From a Newsday.com online article:

cranberry3Cranberry Lake is one of the largest remote lakes in the Adirondacks, so it is no wonder the beauty is off the charts. Civilization has barely encroached upon this pristine wilderness so campers enjoy more solitude than usually found at established campgrounds. Outdoor enthusiasts have plenty to do with dozens of trails in the Five Ponds Wilderness Area that wind through the surrounding forest, and the lake is stocked with trout for the avid fisherman. It isn’t a small campground — more than 170 sites — but the sound of rocking lake waves fills the air, creating the ultimate sound machine to help you drift off to sleep at night.
