We did a TOUR of the Great Camp Sagamore with Fantasy Tours England Autumn group, It was one of those empty slate places for us from out West; we had never heard of a Great Camp. We enjoyed our time visiting this place and found it very entertaining!

... our tent and packing up the camp. It is really nice having Alex at an age to help. We had the camp broken down and packed in no time at all. Off to town, we had a nice little breakfast to fuel up for the day. It is at this point I must interject that we had to make a quick stop by the hardware store, where, just the day before, I bought a pair of sunglasses after I apparently left mine somewhere in the Letchworth Park area. Now we were back, because, somehow, in less than 24 hours, I ...
