Elizabethtown, NY: Memeorial Day Camping at Lincoln Pond Campground

First time camping at Lincoln Pond Campground, first time for Kuma camping, and first time Elise and I camping together*. We loved the experience and are already planning our next trip. Here’s a few pics from the trip.

*first time not sleeping on stupid air mattresses which totally don’t count as camping.

Awesome food truck right off the Northway where we picked up some much needed sausage and peppers after drinking at Adirondack Pub and Brewery. We also filled up our jugs of water at the natural spring located behind him.

Kuma looking ever so regal even though he was a huge pain in the butt, shit-starter the entire weekend.

Reeeeally roughing it with our Aeropress and kettle in tow.

…followed by pancakes on the Weber Q, obv.

Yeah. This happened. Don’t judge me.

McFatty Melt Classic – Hamburger with two grilled cheese sandwiches as buns. My GI system was begging for mercy by Sunday night.

Kuma and I taking an afternoon snooze.

Attempting to burn the largest log in the world. We were unsuccessful, but that didn’t stop us from trying.

Sippin’ on some two year old caffeinated Four Loko by the fire.

Our sleeping buddy I found under the fly as I broke down the tent Monday morning. It’s leg-spand was bigger than a silver dollar. Creepy as fuck.

Totally Normal Amount of Craft Beer to Bring “Car Camping”…

What we took to Lincoln Pond this weekend. (More on that later). This isn’t including the shitty beer and the hard alcohol. The run down:

  • Maine Beer Co. – Mean Old Tom
  • Keegan Ales – Joe Mama’s Milk
  • Adirondack Pub and Brewery – Cocoa-llaboration (Barrel-Aged Chocolate Smoked Porter collab with Crossroads Brewing)
  • Adirondack Pub and Brewery – Barrel Aged Fat Scotsman (Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy aged in Jack Daniels Barrels)
  • Adirondack Pub and Brewery – Whiskey Sour (Belgian Black Ale aged in Apple Jack Whiskey Oak Barrels with Lactobacillus added)
  • Adirondack Pub and Brewery – Adirondack Double Mocha Stout (on nitro, in Ruck growler)
  • Troegs – Nugget Nectar
  • The Alchemist – Heady Topper
  • Pre-Ban Four Loko – Cellar-aged two years

Yeah, I still have some old illegal Four Loko, what of it? Doesn’t everyone craft beer drinker out there age caffeinated Four Loko like they cellar limited-release barrel-aged stouts? No?
