Day 19 Cont'd I was nearing Lake Placid and the daylight was fading fast. It had begun to drizzle a bit and I was looking hard for a place to put down a tent. I just wasn't seeing anything that spoke to me. I had made it my goal for the rest of the trip to not get a campground. I wanted to see if I could do it. I was really striking out this evening though, and thought I'd have to go back to a campground I had seen earlier. By the way, you always see the best spots when it's early in the day and you don't need it yet. I had decided to try one more house. Jackpot!!! It turns out they had a cottage out back and the tenants had just moved out. The nice folks let me put up there for the evening. Awesome, no wet tent to put away.
