Lately I've had a growing desire to go see the country, the real country. Places where we can get relatively far out from civilization, go camping (real camping, not some campground with a swimming pool and bar that costs $50 a night), do some serious hiking, canoeing, offroading, and general sight seeing. In my homestate of NY there are, as far as I can tell, no places where you can just go explore nature. Its always lodges, motels, campgrounds, whatever. That to me just seems completely inauthentic, and I won't settle for it. Plus our states geography is really boring outside the Adirondack mountains, which brings me back to my previous point about lodges motels and camp grounds. Are there are places left where you can just go, and ACTUALLY get away from it all?
