Anybody Got Any Info on the Cortland Area?
My wife and I bought a "vacation package" from one of those limited time sale websites the other day. It's our version of an outdoor compromise.
See K.C. abhors the outdoors. Maybe that's a strong statement, but there's no chance she'd ever go camping. Like ever. Sleep in a tent? Use communal bathroom facilities (if there's bathrooms at all)? No way. Never.

Me? I have a growing appreciation for the outdoors. I fish, and although I never really camped or stuff growing up, I have no aversions to any of the scenarios above. I'm a MAN for chrissakes.

So back to our trip. It's a compromise because while we're going to a nice outdoorsy area, we're not exactly roughing it. No, instead we're staying at a "Mountain Resort" in Cortland, NY...yeah, like one with fancy showers, restaurants, and an indoor waterpark. Yes, I said an indoor waterpark.

That said, when K.C. is not getting all pampered or when Lilly isn't zooming down waterslides, it will hopefully give me a chance to take the girls off the property and go out & about and do some outdoorish stuff. Stuff like take hikes, have a picnic, rent a rowboat, or even go fishing. I know there's a lake to fish nearby...but I know nothing of trout streams, to which my fingers are crossed. I mean it's in Cortland, and there's a fly line company of the same name there right?
I know I've got some Mid-Atlantic & New Englanders that read this blog. I also know there's a lot of outdoorsy types too...I mean I can smell your unshowered bodies. Has anybody ever been to this area? Anybody got anything for me here? 'Googling it' will only take me so far.
It's going to be a trip over a long weekend, and we're talking uncharted territory (on so many levels) so I want to attempt to make the most of it. My influence over my family's future outdoor experiences may very well hinge on it.
