    Paul and René's New Years at The Cabin
    Paul Kuehnel meets his friend René from Montreal and they spend New Years at The Cabin. They cross-country ski the jeep road to Ridge Camp for the views, and then more skiiing and snowshoeing other High Peaks places. Paul is an talented photojournalist (York PA Daily Record).

    Guest Book Entry:
    The Cabin is a welcome escape from the generic world of the Motel 6, KOA, and the Burger King. The U.S. is an easy country to traverse, but difficult to get away from and the Northeast, with a dense population, is generally a boring destination for the vacation pioneer.
    After the short rise into the hills off of Route 9N, Fourpeaks is a quiet place of frosted mature pines--unchallenged night wind. The warm glow of gas light bundled beneath a thick starry beach. The Milky Way rolls its foamy waves free of the orange buzz of shopping mall vapor lights.
     Paul K., Emigsville, PA.

    The Cabin Side Door, New Years 1998. Gas lights over the kitchen sink. Night sky and spruce trees through the window. Fireplace and rocking chairs at The Cabin. Old Quebec pine cupboard--the kitchen centerpiece.
    Paul is also an accomplished storyteller. Here's a sample:
    At a place in British Columbia during dinner they would have to climb on the dining room table every half-hour or so to pump up the gas lights. "When I arrived," they said, "We just painted the privy, so use the woods. Just stay away from the river--That's the wash water!." The Place was heaven after sleeping in the truck for a couple of weeks.
    Pitcher pump on kitchen counter with wine and wine glass. Paul snowshoeing the top of Cascade. Here's another story:
    One night at the Pitkin Hotel during dinner--Pitkin, Colo., an old stone hotel at 10K feet, four miles East of the Divide--the well pump quit. The basement is only accessed through through a large trap door with a big brass ring, right under the table.
    Picture a sinking ship! All the passengers on deck in a panic while the sailors are scurrying around below to see just how far the iceberg has torn open the hull. The pump was in an old open well in a small cold cellar used to store the hard stuff, before gun fights were outlawed in the mid-1950's.
    The good news is they found the owners cat. It had been missing for a week. That was fortunate. The unexpected appearance one day of the former fluffy--rising out of the bowels of the hotel under the dining room table . . . That might have cut into the dessert sales!
