The idea for this all started while I was planning a weekend afternoon. We were already going to a winery event and wanted to have things to do afterwards. In the end I sourced four different websites, not including two local papers and a handful of emails and Facebook posts to complete our itinerary. It frustrated me that there was no single website where I could access everything that was going on. The longer I searched, the more I thought, “somebody should make this.” I figured that somebody might as well be me.
I came up with a basic list of what I would want a site to provide and threw the idea around. I discovered that my frustration was shared by a lot of people.
A friend said, “Who better than you? You live on the Fork and know a lot of the people in those industries, not to mention you love this stuff.”
“Heck,” I thought, “why let not knowing what I’m doing stop me?” After all, it’s my was of supporting my local businesses, and have fun while doing it.
So here it is, a newborn site, complete with first post. As I contact and visit the various businesses, North-Forks will grow, adding images and information, so keep coming back to check up on our progress. I have a feeling that this site will become your go-to when planning an afternoon or weekend on the North Fork.
