Guest Book Entry:
Our personal experience.
Staying at Fourpeaks in New Camp renewed our faith in Our Creator. We came there pretty beat from the outside world, and found peace and serenity. Denny and I had just come through a tough experience with me in the hospital for almost two weeks. We were strangers to each other upon arrival. We will be married for 30 years come this November. Time and the demands of life in general, can almost sever the bonds between two people. New Camp helped save our relationship.
Upon arrival I did not know what to expect. What my eyes told me was that this place was very hungry for water and it frightened me. Martin just asked me if the mpountains scared me and I said No. Then fear nothing. I knew we were where we were supposed to be.
We walked over the threshhold into the past, and then our adventure began. Bathing became a welcome time of revelation. With no hot water, and a limited supply of water, bathing became a meticulous challenge. It gave us time to think and to enjoy the simplicity of life here. We had gas lights, but chose candle light for the most. Candlelight is enchanting. It reaches out into the darkness with a soft enticing glow. We sat many nights by candle light and spoke unspoken words from our hearts. We had not been this open with one another in years. The one room cabin became our haven. I was able to write again, something I hadn't done in years.
Reading Martin's Poetry.
We read to each other and we listened and savored each word. We had brought books, but to our surprise Martin had left a book of poetry he wrote to his children. We knew we were definitely in the right place, as I always write poetry to my children and they in turn write back. A gifted man in his own right, we came to cherish his writings. As the sun would descend in the sky, and finally fall behind the mountains, night would fall upon us. We started what we like to call, Martin's Corner. By reading this we became not only with the author, but with our surroundings. The book was a map written from the heart, and a map which could be followed.
Drought and Rain.
We experienced nature in dire straights with no rain for weeks. After much prayer to our Creator we watched in awe the power of nature. Winds and rain came from the darkened skies. It brought a freshness to the air and the smell was clean. In the end the earth appeared quenched and once again supple and not so dry and frail. As we changed so did Fourpeaks.
Hiking was our activity of choice, due to the weather this time of year, and to our age. Although snowshoeing would be great here too. We hiked and encoiuntered varieties of fauna, and indulged ourselves in the wonder of a land from so long ago. We became one with the earth. View upon view took our breath away. [I can/would] Close my eyes and just feel, smell, and taste the virginity of it all. This is God's land, and we were privileged to be a part of it. To be able to just sit quietly and feel the heat of the sun upon my face, and watch a grasshopper click with his legs as if speaking to me. It is pure beauty, a land untouched by time, and protected by the Creator and the man he made its guardian.
We are grateful for this experience for it was one of spirituality for us.
Denny and Mary Furey, Greenfield Center, NY, October 15, 1999.

We well remember the visitor who complained about the unpleasant glare from the HTML default royal blue links. That lead us to entirely revamp our background and link colors, making them softer, more eye pleasing. And the Florida expert who warned us about frustrating visitors with blind links.
