Davey Wavey Does the Bathhouse

Davey Wavey at the BathhouseI’m always up for an adventure. And I rarely say no to an experience that will provide good material for my blog or YouTube channel. So when my friend Matt suggested that we “lose our bathhouse virginity” in New York City, I was sold.

Bathhouses, like libraries and newspapers, are a dying breed in this part of the world. The Internet is killing them. It’s not a quick and easy death; instead, it’s slow, painful and drawn out. Indeed, it’s much easier to browse profiles of eligible men from the comfort of your own home–or even on your iPhone or iPad. And so, as more and more gay men turn to the Internet for dating and fun, time is running out for the bathhouses.

When Matt and I arrived at the bathhouse, we were quite certain that the address must be wrong. From the outside, the building was unassuming. But that’s the whole point; discretion is key. A security officer guarded the front entrance and directed us to the elevator.

Davey Wavey Does New England

Gay Travel: Davey Wavey Does New EnglandFor purposes of full disclosure, I need to share that I’m a tried and true New Englander. Wherever I go in the world, I always end up back here–right where it all started. Beyond having my roots in New England, I think it’s really a region that has it all. From warm summers to cold winters and with everything in between, each season brings a totally distinct experience and a full host of activities–from hiking to skiing to canoeing to ice fishing and swimming. We have cities, small towns and even gayborhoods. We’ve got great food, theater and certainly no shortage of gays.

One of my favorite vacations–be it late summer or the frigid depths of mid-winter–is an escape to Northern New England. Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine are home to some of the friendliest people and most picturesque views you can find.

Depending on your speed and the season, you can plan an exciting and wild summertime adventure on the Appalachian Trail, which snakes all the way from Georgia to Northern New England and ends in Maine. At 2,180 miles, it’s one of the longest continuously marked footpaths in the world. If you do hike the whole trial, you will have climbed the elevation equivalent of Mount Everest–sixteen times.
