Bryce and I took a foggy drive out to Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn a few weekends ago, dodging all the mayhem that is Flatbush Avenue. Floyd Bennett is an old airport that the National Park System now runs as part of Gateway National Recreation Area. It’s full of abandoned buildings that you’re legally not supposed to go into, a place for people to fly their remote control airplanes, one of the sorriest looking archery ranges I ever saw, and long stretches of concrete runways that serve as roads to other long stretches of concrete runways. Nonetheless, the runway and ranges were packed, and the buildings were empty, except for the two of us and some pigeons.
The real reason we went down there was to check out New York’s only campgrounds. There are three of them in Floyd Bennett and, surprisingly, they’re kind of awesome. They’re in a field near the main hanger, and once you’re in there, the tall grass and trees block the views of the concrete runways and abandoned buildings. You truly are in “the woods.” There are fire pits and picnic tables, and the other campsites are far away enough from one another that you wouldn’t be able to see your fellow camping groups. Not sure what it’s like sleeping outside in Brooklyn, but I guess we’ll find out in the coming weekends..
Lance Mackey, master of the mush, became the third musher in the Iditarod’s 37-year history to win in three consecutive years. His father, Dick Mackey, won the Iditarod in 1978 and his half-brother, Rick Mackey, won the race in 1983.
Y‘all, CS is going down to Texas real early tomorrow morning, so have a wonderful rest of the week. I hope that if you too are in Austin, and for some miraculous reason read this website and want to know what a goddamn handsome feller I am, you’ll come hootering and hollering on up to me and say hello. I’ll be the one with the big yellow patch on my army jacket.
In recent years, it has become fashionable for a growing number of Swiss and some foreigners to wander in the Alps clad in little more than hiking shoes and sun screen. Last summer, the number of nude hikers increased to such an extent that the hills often seemed alive with the sound of everything but the swish of trousers.
If you want info about nude hiking in the United States, go no further than the Nude Hiking Blog.
