Last week, J & I stayed in a Bed & Breakfast for free (my magazine assignment) and an AMC hut for free (J won this prize at a rec director conference).
Let’s see how they compare.
B&B … Suite with a king-sized bed and 45 fluffy pillows, private bath with jacuzzi tub
Hut … Bunk bed among 20 other bunk beds with snoring men & crying kids. Composting pit toilet in outhouse shared by other guests.
B&B … 5-course gourmet meal at a private table with quite possibly the best beef tenderloin evah (cut with a fork only) and an extremely delicious dessert
Hut … 5-course NON-gourmet meal at a shared table. And get this … NO napkins (it’s their way of limiting garbage)
B&B … Mount Kearsarge & Pleasant Lake
Hut … White Mountains
Hut … Northbound thru hikers
B&B … Andrew McCarthy from the Brat Pack! I have a funny story about that, but it’s kind of long. I’ll save it for another time.
So which would you rather?
Oh, and HAPPY 9-02-10!! Get it???
