I had an unforgettable experience in the Catskills Mountains, a rather scary one! Me (im 12 years old), my cousins (11,and 15 years old) my aunt (who is around 40) and my grandma (who is 70 years old) decided to go on a hike on the Balsam mountains.My mother, my younger sister and my grandma's sister stayed at the hotel. My mother did not want me to go but i still went. Anyways, we got ready for the hike in the morning. We left the hotel at noon and we were planning to come back by seven at night latest. The hike was an hour away from the hotel. We started the hike at one in the after noon. When we started the hike we started on the red trail,which is a walk which goes straight,we had to cross streams couple of times by stepping on rocks. Soon we reached the point where the climb starts. The first part of the climb was steep but managable. After the steep part we took a lunch break,we had packed sandwiches. After the lunch break we went on the blue trail but we did not realize it. We were supposed to continue to go on the read trail but we had already walked for four hours so it was not worth walking four hours back. We decided to keep walking on the blue trail until it gets us down. My grandma twisted her leg while walking,it was five o clock right now. After two hours she could not walk anymore so we had to call the police for help. The police told us to go back from where we came and we will find another path which is athe yellow path,they said that path will lead us to a parking lot where a police car will be waiting for us. So we walked back and after half an hour we found the path. The path was completely downhill and on the sign it said three miles down. We new my grandma could not do that with a hurt leg so we told her to wait up here with my older cousin (who is 15) while me,my younger cousin and my aunt go down to get help up. We could not call the police again because we had lost signal. We had half a bottle of water left so we kept it to go down sice my grandma and cousin will just be sitting in one place.We had to get down fast because in an hour the sun sets and we did not have flash lights,all we had was a smart phone which was on twenty five percent! After two and a half hours we had finished the downhill path. It just led us to a forest with no path! Right next to us was a stream and next to the stream was a road with lots of grass on it. We chose to cross the stream and walk on the road to see where it takes us. We walked on the road and suddenly a BEAR crossed are path around five meters in front of us! My aunt held me and my cousin and quitely told us not ti move. We froze for a few seconds and soon the bear went back in the forest.After a few minutes of walking we saw someone run towards us, it was my older cousin who we left with my grandma! He said my grandma told him to come down because she thought we were lost.My aunt got very angry at my cousin for leaving my grandma alone in the dark forest with bears.My cousin said he came down looking for us and he was alone in the forest for one hour all by himeself,he was only fifteen! We continued walking on the road and after hours of walking we found a cottage! We knocked on the door but no one opened. We picked up stones from the ground and threw it at the window.We really wanted to get in because we thought a land line phone might be in.Soon we broke the window and went inside the house and guess what we saw, A LANDLINE PHONE! My aunt picked up the phone and called the police.Many police cars and ambulances came to the house we broke into and had an search team to find my grandma up in the mounatins,it was eleven thirty at night. I called my mother after the police came and she was very worried about us and especially my grandma since she was alone in a forest. It was freezing cold and my grandma did not have a jacket! My cousins and I slept in the house and at one thirty in the next morning the police located her and at two thirty they got her down in a special car which can drive over difficult terrain.They put my grandma in an ambulance and took her to a hospital.A police car took Me,my aunt and my cousin to the same hospital.My grandma had an x ray but she was fine, she was alone in the forest for four hours and she said she was freezing! The police got are car to the hospital and by five in the morning we left the hospital and by six we got home.My mother was happy to see that we were not hurt but now she will never let me go on a hike again!

We are home, refrig is empty, grass needs mowing but house is perfect thanks to a great house sitter over the past 4 and a half weeks.
Traveled 5838 miles averaged 33.3 MPG. Saw gas prices as low as $1.96 and as high as $2.79 in good old NYS. Our 2 year old Subaru now has over 50,000 miles on it!
Saw some more of our Beautiful country especially the UP of Michigan. We now lack just Alabama to see all the states. Need ...
A 2 and a half day competition between the red dinosaurs and the blue aliens!!!! OMG! These days I will never forget. It all starts with breaking Maccabiah as a surprise after many many fake breaks throughout the summer! I knew this was it by the amount of fireworks and craziness that happened....I then found out who our luitenants, generals and camper captains were and then we were split into 2 teams not knowing who our leaders would be until we saw ...

So the day finally arrived after 3 weeks of stress and laughter and tears as to whether we would pull this off with the max of 1 hour a day in the first week and a max of 2-3 hours a day for the last 2 weeks - apart from the day we went to camel beach and college day - 2 days worth of rehearsals...gone by being part of camp haha!!! Anyway!!! This play was sooo incredible ...
