From End To End | Adventures In Montauk & Brooklyn...

For the longest time I've wanted to drive to Camp Hero State Park out in Montauk here on Long Island because it used to be an Air Force station, so there are some buildings there from when it was and I wanted to check them out because I love abandoned things, plus I love a good outing at a park.
So this past Saturday Justin, Phil, Erin and I finally drove out to Camp Hero to do some hiking (Have to break in those boots for Iceland) and exploring of the old building on the property.

We got about four hours worth of hiking and exploring in before it started to rain. During those hours, we saw some awesome wildlife, cool old buildings and batteries from when it was an operational military station from 1941-1981 and a bunch of other neat stuff.

After our adventure we headed back to one of our other friend's houses to shower off, eat dinner and play video games until the wee hours of the morning.

On Sunday Justin, Erin and I headed over to Phil's apartment to meet up with him so we could drive out to Brooklyn to attend the Morbid Anatomy Museum's Morbid Anatomy Flea Market. We got there maybe thirty minutes after the event started and there was a line around the block to get in. We waited on line for a while but decided to not wait any longer because the set up seemed a little ridiculous to us and it was misty out.

So we decided that since we were already in Brooklyn that we'd drive over to Williamsburg and hit up the Brooklyn Flea Market. Which was a much better idea.
We ate a bunch of food from various vendors, bought randomness and then headed to the Bushwick Inlet Park to hang out because it ended up being a beautiful day after the AM mist.
After the park and hitting up the Flea for some doughnuts to take home and some ice pops from People's Pops for the road, we headed back to Phil's dropped off the food and then we drove to Sands Point Preserve to do a little light hiking and wander around there.

At some point it started to drizzle, so we left the park and hit up Salvatore's Coal Fire Pizza for dinner before heading our separate ways.

So yeah, that was my weekend. We literally drove over one hundred and fifty miles all over Long Island to do all of these things and I think they were totally worth the mileage on Phil's car.

What did you do this weekend?
