About Sundown Farm

In A Few Words...

Retired 84 year old owner of Timberlock, an Adirondack family summer resort

A Little More Detail

I go by Dick, am an active pilot, SCORE volunteer, serve on local non profit boards. Skier, music lover, hiker, still help our son and daughter in law with their running of Timberlock, a summer family vacation resort on Indian Lake in the Adirondacks. My wife has Alzheimers but is still doing quite well and we are able to travel and boat. This summer we will be heading west with a friend in our truck camper. Also do a fair amount of woodworking in my barn shop. As a former resort owner, there is not much in the way of people and families that we have not experienced. We like people. Have also done a fair amount of boating in our pocket trawler on Lake Champlain and as far as the Bahamas.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

This will be our first summer traveling with our new rig. Montana with friends is out primary destination.

Sundown Farm was an amazing location in an amazing place, one of the loveliest in the country – so generous and such a pleasure talking and getting to know them, albeit too briefly. hope to see them again!
