    Guest Book Entry:
    Hello Martin,
    Just wanted to let you know that Holly and I had a great time. How sweet the late Spring and early summer is up there. Hiking some very beautiful trails and coming back to the picturesque settings of New Camp and Thoreau Cabin to enjoy a beer and some fine food with a friend is really the way for me. I only regret that the time passed so quickly. Sprockett is immensely tired as well. He had every bit as much fun as we did. Dog owners can tell when their animal is happy, and mine was in a state of bliss the entire time we were at 4 peaks.
    Nick, Holly, and Sprockett.

    Hello Martin,
    Just wanted to let you know that Holly and I had a great time. Being at 4 Peaks makes me consider moving to the area. That's how much fun I had. I know it must have not been an easy life for your forerunners up there on the property practicing subsistence farming and braving the isolation of long winters, yet I couldn't help to envy their lifestyle. How sweet the late Spring and early summer is up there. Hiking some very beautiful trails and coming back to the picturesque settings of New Camp and Thoreau Cabin to enjoy a beer and some fine food with a friend is really the way for me. I only regret that the time passed so quickly. Sprockett is immensely tired as well. He had every bit as much fun as we did. Dog owners can tell when their animal is happy, and mine was in a state of bliss the entire time we were at 4 peaks.
    We were thinking next time of trying to find at least one other couple to come up with us. It would help with expenses, and the more the merrier. It would really be fine to share what we've found at 4 Peaks with some friends. I've attached a couple of photos because I know how you like to see pictures of people enjoying the land. Thanks for being a great host and we might see you again before the winter.
    Best Regards,
    Nick, Holly, and Sprockett.
    PS- Tell George Sprockett said "Woof!"

    Nick--
    Thanks for your email and the photos.

    "must have not been an easy life for your forerunners up there"
    No. I guess it wasn't. But then not everybody has the stamina to make it in the bigcity ratrace. I did (in NYC for years) but now I'm happy to be back here in the woods like them.

    I'd like to make a webpage for your visit. To see what other guests have to remember, take a look at links on http://4peaks.com/fgstbndx.htm

    To do this I need some more photos. A few of Holly, the picnic table, inside the camp, hiking. Anything you like. More if you have time. Please send me the photos and I'll make the page right away.

    Also--May I have Holly's email address? (For my Newsletters.)

    Thanks for all. The scrapple is great.
    Enjoyed the dinner. Come back and next time I'll make a dinner for you.
    Yes. Let me know what season you're thinking of coming back. Discounts will apply. See http://4peaks.com/fgift.htm If it's not a holiday I'll do better. Just you two or with friends.

    Martin
    PS George says "Sprockett--Come back."

    Martin,
    I agree with your sentiments;
    " But then not everybody has the stamina to make it in the bigcity ratrace."

    I work in a windowless office that infuriates my allergies. When you throw in the commute, I'm gone 11 hours a day, so not much time is left to spend in my crappy apartment in my marginal neighborhood that I work all the time to pay for. It is what it is for now, but I'm looking to make a positive change over the next couple of years. Who knows, I could end up by you?

    It would be great to see a webpage of our visit go up. Unfortunately, we didn't take many pictures. We only had Holly's little camera and she says that there were no good pictures taken of her so she got rid of them all. I had a nice Nikon digital camera which was stolen in a burglary of my apartment, in January, while I was out walking Sprockett. But I've attached a few more anyway and please make whatever hay you can out of them.

    I'm glad you enjoyed the scrapple and the dinner. We'll see what's cooking with some of our friends and maybe try and make it up before winter. Here's Holly's email: hrisko45@yahoo.com

    I'll apologize if any of the photos are doubles. I'll check back at the site for them in a couple of days.

    Take care, -Nick
