Camping/Hiking trip through New England and New York – Help?
My boyfriend, our dog, and I are hitting the road October 1st to camp and do a lot of peak bagging in our gorgeous mountains all over New England. Truth be told we don’t have a huge budget but sure have more than enough to make the trip. Which is why we would like to camp in pet friendly state parks that are quiet and super cheap. I know a lot of New Hampshire and Vermont, but I haven’t explored Maine. There are so many parks and forests that I don’t even know where to begin sorting them out. Which parks in Maine are the best for camping and hiking in the fall with the best landscape?
I’m from Southern Maine and know the York/Cumberland County beaches very well. I’m not terribly familiar with parks for camping, but there are some trails by Portland Head Light in Cape Elizabeth and at Laudholm Farm in Wells. I went to Rangeley and Moosehead Lake a few times as a kid…very nice area, quiet, great views.
This website I found might be helpful:

It’s great that you’re trying to make summer camp plans for you and your friends. When I was doing the whole camp search for my two kids, I found Choice Camps, a great service that helped me find all types of camps and the camp they ended up going to. If you visit www.ChoiceCamps.com you’ll see a large database on all sorts of camps and teen trips and programs. They are also available to speak with you on the phone and answer all of your questions, something that was a very big help and reassurance for me!
Since you are all teens, I recommend you check out the teen trips and programs on there too. They have all types of camps and programs all over the country so you’ll definitely find something in the New England area. Take a look!
What do you think of this Israel, Palestine parallel?
The holy bible clearly state that Alaska, Maine, New York, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, Montana and Washington stats belongs to the Canadians.
But you can also easily interpret from the bible that Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming, Idaho and Oregon states belongs to the Canadians.
Historic Canadian scrolls also indicates that Virginia, Kentucky, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado, Utah, Nevada and California states belongs to the Canadians.
Tomorrow afternoon the UN will grant those states to the Canadians. All Americans residents in those states are to be relocated in “temporary” refugee camps in the remaining of the US. If the US or any other country attack Canada, they will be considered anti-Canadian terrorist and rightfully be subject to indiscriminate napalm bombing, cluster bombs, air raid, economic sanction, humanitarian aid sanctions and possibly nuclear attacks.
Every month, the Canadian/US borders will be redrawn to take into account Canada’s natural population growth.
Thank you for your cooperation.
If that was to happen, would you become a terrorist or what would you do?
All I can say is, if the Israelies did to we, Americans, what they are doing to the Palestinians, I CAN GUARANTEE YOU, AMERICA WOULD SHOOT SOMETHING A WHOLE LOT STRONGER THAN HOME MADE MISSILES, INTO ISRAEL AND THEY WOULD NOT BE STEALING OUR LAND AND MURDERING OUR CITIZENS.
A more correct analogy would be like the British(aka Israel) declaring American colonies(AKA Palestinian West Bank and Gaza strips) as their own-we Americans exercised our “RIGHT to bear arms” to protect our lives and property from the British invaders/occupiers(aka Israel). The Israelies would call Americans(AKA Palestinians) terrorists.
Pro Israelies either ignore, or, conveniently forget, the WEST BANK AND GAZA STRIPS BELONG TO THE PALESTINIANS, NOT ISRAEL.
EDIT: BIBLE AND BRITISH MANDATE PERMISSION? Here are the facts and the Jews misinterpteted them:
First, the land was given as RESIDENCY for the Jews, not as OWNERSHIP- NO WHERE does it say the Jews owned it or were to kill the Arabs to get it. God quite explicitly states whom the land belongs to-GUESS WHAT- it was not the Jews, but the Arabs. CAN ANY ONE BELIEVE GOD WOULD COMMAND THE JEWS TO STEAL SOMEONE ELSE’S LAND AND KILL THEM FOR IT? Matter of fact in, the Bible, God PUNISHES the city on the hill(that’s Israel). She is brought to her knees for her indiscretions(this can ONLY be the Palestinian situation) Nation up on nation shall rise up against her-sound familiar-even the US, her only supporter is changing direcection. God intervenes and Israel is turned from her wicked ways. A NEW Jerusalem, possibly shared, instead of divided as is now, arises.This is in the Bible.
The truth is that Jews (not Israel) bought about 7% of the land before 1948. Most of the rest was owned by Palestinians as documented by the British Mandate.The remaining land was STOLEN from the Palestinians AS DOCUMENTED BY THE BRITISH:
The Arabs of Canaan are the Arabs of Palestine. They were there AT LEAST EQUALLY as long as the Jews/Israelis, but they had a constant presence and a defined land. The Jews were nomadic and had NO land until what was taken from the Palestinians in 1948. Both Jews and Arabs have the same father, Abraham, whom although Semitic, possibly Hebrew, was not considered Jewish. Abraham, his parents, and his ancestry is from Babylon, which is, in fact, INSIDE the Arabian Peninsula, the origin of the Arab peoples.So he may very well have been Arab.
Palestine is a name which has been widely used since Roman times to refer to the region that includes contemporary Israel and the Palestinian territories, parts of Jordan, and parts of Lebanon and Syria. In its narrow meaning, it refers to the area within the boundaries of the former British Mandate of Palestine (1920-1948) west of the Jordan River.
Palestine can also refer to the Proposed Palestinian State.
The name and the borders of Palestine have varied throughout history, though Palestine has certain natural boundaries that justify its historical individuality. Other terms that have been used to refer to all or part of this area include Arabistan, Canaan, Greater Israel, Greater Syria, the Holy Land, Iudaea Province, Israel, “Israel HaShlema”, Kingdom of Israel, Kingdom of Jerusalem, Land of Israel, Levant, Retenu (Ancient Egyptian), Southern Syria, and Syria Palestina.
Early archeological textual reference to the territory of Palestine is found in the Merneptah Stele, dated c. 1200 BCE, containing a recount of Egyptian king Merneptah’s victories in the land of Canaan, mentioning place-names such as Gezer, Ashkelon and Yanoam, along with Israel, which is mentioned using a hieroglyphic determinative that indicates a nomad people, rather than a state.
The promise that is the basis of the term “promised land” is contained in Genesis 15:18-21 of the Hebrew Bible:
“On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abrham and said, “To your descendants I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates – the land of the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, Hittites, Perizzites, Rephaites, Amorites, Canaanites, Girgashites and Jebusites.”
The verse is said to describe what are known as “Borders of the Land” (Gevulot Ha-aretz). In Jewish tradition these borders define the maximum extent of the land promised to the descendants of Abraham through his son Isaac(2nd born-the Jewish lineage and Ishmael the 1st born and the Arab lineage) and grandson Jacob.Even according to Hebrew customs, the oldest son, which is Ishmael, is entitled to the father’s inheritance, but because Sarah despised Ishmael, she wanted Isaac to get the inheritance and had Abraham exhile Ishmael. Neither is Ishmael illegitimate but the legal son of his SECOND wife Hagar-Genesis 16: “And Sarah Abraham’s wife took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after Abraham had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to her husband Abraham to be his WIFE(my emphasis).By Hebrew tradition, when one or the other spouse can not perform their duties, the remaining spouse can the partner’s closest relative/ friend to legally fulfill those duties-in this case Hagar.
“On that day Yahweh made a covenant with Abraham, saying, “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt as far as the great river, the river Euphrates. (Genesis15:18)”Ishamael was Abraham’s FIRST born.
The promise is made to Abraham and the descendants of his son Ishmael(According to Hebrew law, the first born gets ALL the inheritance), Isaac, and Isaac’s son Jacob, Abraham’s grandson as they are all given promise that their descendants will be given a territory from the river of Egypt to the Euphrates river.No where does it say the Israelis/Jews OWNED the land, nor were they to take it from, and, kill the Palestinians. The Israelis/Jews were given a land ONLY to reside in as many Jews already had among the Palestinians.
***God CLEARLY states whom the land belongs to-”the land of the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, Hittites, Perizzites, Rephaites, Amorites, Canaanites, Girgashites and Jebusites.” Of all these people, only the Palestinians whom are considered Canaanites, are still around. Except for Iran and Israel, Arabs own all of what was Canaan.***
*According to Alexander Scholch, GERMAN JEW AND PROFESSIONAL HISTORIAN, the population of Palestine in 1850 had about 350,000 inhabitants, 30% of whom lived in 13 towns; roughly 85% were Muslims(Arabs), 11% were Christians and 4% Jews.Scholch, 1985, p. 503.
Palestinian Demographics Link up to 1948
The Arabs(Ishmael) were there first and the Jews(Isaac) were there second. Even according to Hebrew law, Ishmael, not Isaac, was entitled to Abraham’s inheritance.
“On that day Yahweh made a covenant with Abrahm, saying, “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt as far as the great river, the river Euphrates. (Genesis15:18)”Ishamael(Arabs) was Abraham’s first born and by Hebrew law, entiteled to ALL of the Father’s inheritance.
Sarah, a mere mortal, somehow hoodwinked God and God fell for it. The Arabs were and are the MAJORITY there. The Jews, whom made up less than 5% of the population lived peacefully among their Arab hosts until the British Mandate of 1922 when FOREIGN(MOSTLY ILLEGAL-exceeding quotas set by the British) Jews with little or NO Middle East ties immigrated to Arab Palestine-swelling the population to 35%.The Arab armies(no Jews participated) had just thrown off the Ottoman Empire. The UN assigned Britain to occupy Arab Palestine(at least 90% of the population,6% other, less than 5% Jews).When the Jews became 35% of the population, they became belligerent forming murderous Jewish terrorist groups, the Stern Gang and Irgun(now democratically elected Likud-exact counter part of the Arab Hamas). They demanded a homeland carved out of ARAB Palestine and attacked and killed their Arab hosts.This ended with the Jewish taking MORE land than the UN agreed to. The UN did not ratify this until AFTER Israel formed in 1948.
In summary of core FACTS: Arabs first and, MAJORITY, Biblically, and, scientifically, Jews second, Arabs OWNED Palestine, Jews did not, Jews STARTED the killings and land thefts under misinterpetation of God’s promise,and, the British Mandate(political, NOT, land borders).ISRAEL IS VERY WRONG.
Currently, there are 5.4 million Jews in Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza strips(true Palestine). There are 5.6 million Arabs in Israel, the West Bank , and Gaza strips(true Palestine).The Arabs outnumber the Jews in true Palestine by about 200,000.Jews outnumber Arabs in Israel and Arabs outnumber Jews in the West Bank and Gaza stips-actually in almost exact mirror proportions-the two state is already up-IT NEEDS ratification.
As for the British Mandate,read it closely-Palestine was to REMAIN one country-one land-ONLY POLITICAL borders for Jews and Arabs were assigned. Jews ERRONEOUSLY interpeted these POLITICAL borders as a Jewish COUNTRY’S borders-read it CLOSELY.
Does any one see ANYWHERE where the Jews are to kill Arabs and steal their land-not in the Bible, nor, in the British Mandate?
