I know many of you have already begun packing for your week here. Here are some suggestions:
Clothes for comfort (t-shirts, long sleeve shirts, sweatshirts, shorts, pajamas, etc.) for five days at the Fort and five nights at the Best Western Hotel.
Ultimately, we want you to be comfortable!
Keep in mind that so far we have had a warmer-than-usual summer here in Ticonderoga. It appears that after Sunday, however, temperatures will be in the low 80s. We will be returning to the fort Thursday evening, where it can cool off quickly as the sun goes down. Best to pack accordingly!
Rain gear – wide-open spaces between the Fort and the parking lot make for wet walks without gear or umbrellas.
The hotel has a coin-operated laundromat, if you run out of clean clothes.
If you are interested, the hotel also has a pool and an indoor exercise facility.
Shoes for comfort during the days at the Fort are the best option. Comfortable hiking/walking shoes for days when we explore the historic landscape.
If you get cold easily, definitely bring a sweatshirt! The Mars Education Center is climate-controlled, and thus relatively chilly!
Writing utensils and paper. We will provide a binder for you.
Toiletries – you know what you need for the most part.
Don’t forget any medications!
Also, SUNSCREEN is strongly recommended.
Water bottle. We will also provide a coffee station at the Mars Education Center.
You will have access to Wi-Fi at both the hotel and at the Fort. You don’t have to bring a laptop by any means, but you can if you would like to.
If you forget anything, don’t worry! Ticonderoga, despite its rural outpost location, has a Walmart Supercenter near the hotel. You can always pick up forgotten items there.
