My teenaged younger brother wants to go "camping in the Adirondacks" this summer. What is that and how do you do it? Assume I have no camping or adventuring equipment, special clothing, or wilderness survival skills of any kind. [more inside]

Neat places to stay overnight in Upstate New York?

Neat places to stay overnight in Upstate New York? In August I'll be driving up 81 through New York State on my way to Montreal. Since Buffalo to Montreal is an 8 hour drive, I was thinking of breaking it up with an overnight stay somewhere upstate--vaguely Watertown area, say. Are there any attractive spots, little hotels or B&Bs to recommend around there? Rural spots are appealing, too, though we won't be camping.

Housebuying - what is the bidding process like? How do I make a bid effectively.

I think we might have found "THE" house for my mother to retire in. She has spent her whole life living my father's life and for us "kids". Never came close to enjoying any of the things that interest her. So she wants her home in the country in upstate NY. DH and I have been dedicating weekly trips upstate to help her find this home. We've recently decided to check out Chengango County. Based on pictures, this house looks and sounds great. We're not worried about cosmetic work and will naturally look into the structure of the home and land. Is there anything else I should look for? [more inside]
