Great story and job by DDFers! When I read it and saw that Rudi fought in the Battle of the Bulge as a frum American, I immediately thought of my wife's Zaidy who was also around that age and fought in the same battle (his autobiography is a great read). Then I saw the next line that his son is R' Yaakov Meyer from Denver and knew I heard the name before. Checked with my family in Denver - R' Meyer started the Aish community in Southeast Denver and used to hold classes in my in-laws house. He is responsible for making them religious. While I couldn't verify that our Zaidy knew Rudi (we don't think he's mentioned in the book), this is another nice DDF connection to the story.

Did you try eating at the restaurants on site? Were they accommodating at all towards kosher?
I did not, except for breakfast in the lobby/lounge which I described above as having kosher cereal.

Thanks for the report. Nice to see some things from Letchworth as we had decided on Watkins Glen over Letchworth and didnít really like it.

Nice report - glad you had such a good time and gave me plenty of ideas for future trips, although I have yet to make it as far as Aspen/Maroon Bells but I hope to. Thanks for including pictures!

Thanks, saw that in your TR, but thought it was in RMNP. That was Emerald Lake. Looking into it.

Check out Silver Dollar Lakes.

ETA: Haven't been, but looks like it matches what you're looking for.

Piney lake. fair warning road up is very difficult you will need a good vehicle

Thanks, have gone there before for horseback riding. Doesn't even require a hike, although agreed the drive in a minivan wasn't so easy. Beautiful view.

Delaware water gap national recreation area. Beautiful scenery and some nice hiking. The bottom of it is on the I-80 at the border between NJ and PA

This thread has the potential to become the Chol Hamoed "where are we going today" go to thread.
Any specifics tips what to do there besides kayaking?

Thoughts on which beach to go to for a weekday? Extra points if you can rent umbrellas/tent and close to restaurants (cheap or midrange for lunch). So far Iím leaning towards Loch Arbour and going to Down to Earth. Obviously Long Branch has LBK but I was guided away from that beach due to it being very crowded.

Its not really true. You just have to do some pushing. Just because its an American Embassy it does not mean its American.
But the schedule doesnít have any openings. You mean to call them and push to get a slot opened?
