Office Hours

From Finger Lakes Region

What a great (24/7) office we have wherever we travel: we setup our Coleman E-1 camper in beautiful parks and camp grounds, or, on occasion, in some serendipitous spot next to an accommodating host’s soybean field; we hike around and behind waterfalls while admiring hanging gardens and rock pools reminiscent of Kubla Khan’s Xanadu; we bicycle along Colonial turnpikes and 19th Century canal tow paths in the footsteps of our industrious and resourceful ancestors; we visit historic landscapes and structures and talk with the stewards and interpreters of our natural and cultural heritage about the challenges of sustaining a commitment to preservation… True, we are on-call 24/7, but we’re finding it far more of a privilege than it is a chore, and we travel with the certainty that e-Tour is a pretty good gig, indeed.

Hope to see you down the road during office hours… no appointment necessary.
