Wants More Travelers!

Leave a comment

Irv West and Freida Chapman are New York hosts who want more travelers. They have written an enticing blurb about their area to encourage travelers to visit them:

We live in the Adirondack Park, the largest state park in the contiguous Unites States. It is six million acres (larger than the entire states of Massachusetts and Vermont combined), with 40% forever wild. It is an experiment that worked. There are magnificent lakes, ponds and streams everywhere; the high peaks has 46 mountains without roads, one of which is the highest in New York State. We were home to the Winter Olympics twice.

We welcome visitors who want to share in nature’s bounty, hike any level of trail, eat off the land, frolic with our llamas, dogs and cats, find peace together in nature. We are on the way from New York City to Montreal, a lovely respite.

We can meet you at any of the buses that arrive in either Glens Falls or Warrensburg, or at either of the Amtrak stations in Saratoga or Fort Edward. Of course, we will also give you driving directions if needed.


If you’re a host in search of more travelers we welcome you to write a similar note describing why travelers should visit your area. Send it to info@usservas.org with “Wants More Travelers” in the subject and we’ll be happy to post it here!
