There is no central conflict, other than the mixed virtues and vices of time travel, over the course of his 20 year nap, Rip Missed the war (May have been good) but his wife d…ied in the original(may have quit town in an more softed down version) it is not really a conflict oriented plot.

I think the climax is when Rip returns back to town because he sees that no one recognizes him, his house is decaying, and notices the picture of General Washington on the new… hotel that stands where the old village inn was.

The story of Rip Van Winkle is set in the years before and after the American Revolutionary War. In a pleasant village, at the foot of New York's "Catskill" Mountains, lives t…he kindly Rip Van Winkle, a colonial British-American villager of Dutch descent. Rip is an amiable though somewhat hermetic man who enjoys solitary activities in the wilderness, but is also loved by all in town-especially the children to whom he tells stories and gives toys. He has, however, a tendency to avoid all gainful labor, for which his nagging wife (Dame Van Winkle) chastises him, his home and farm falling into disarray due to his lazy neglect. One autumn day, Rip is escaping his wife's nagging, wandering up the mountains with his dog, Wolf. Hearing his name being shouted, Rip discovers that the speaker is a man dressed in antiquated Dutch clothing, carrying a keg up the mountain, who requires Rip's help. Without exchanging words, the two hike up to an amphitheater-like hollow in which Rip discovers the source of previously-heard thunderous noises: there is a group of other ornately-dressed, silent, bearded men who are playing nine-pins. Although there is no conversation and Rip does not ask the men who they are or how they know his name, he discreetly begins to drink some of their liquor, and soon falls asleep. He awakes in unusual circumstances: it seems to be morning, his gun is rotted and rusty, his beard has grown a foot long, and Wolf is nowhere to be found. Rip returns to his village where he finds that he recognizes no one. Asking around, he discovers that his wife has died and that his close friends have died in a war or gone somewhere else. He immediately gets into trouble when he proclaims himself a loyal subject of King George III, not knowing that the American Revolution has taken place; George III's portrait on the town inn has been replaced by that of George Washington. Rip is also disturbed to find another man is being called Rip Van Winkle (though this is in fact his son, who has now grown up). The men he met in the mountains, Rip learns, are rumored to be the ghosts of Hendrick (Henry) Hudson's crew. Rip is told that he has apparently been away from the village for twenty years. An old local recognizes Rip and Rip's now-adult daughter takes him in. Rip resumes his habitual idleness, and his tale is solemnly taken to heart by the Dutch settlers, with other hen-pecked husbands, after hearing his story, wishing they could share in Rip's good luck.
It is a short story by the American author Washington Irving published in 1819, as well as the name of the story's fictional protagonist. Written while Irving was living in Bi…rmingham, England, it was part of a collection entitled The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon. Although the story is set in New York's Catskill Mountains, Irving later admitted, "When I wrote the story, I had never been on the Catskills."
The story was published in 1819, so clearly it should take place before then. The actual setting is partly before the revolutionary war and partly after it. Rip sleeps for abo…ut 20 years - though the war and awakens to find portraits of King George replacing with portraits of George Washington. If we assume that they have the portraits because Washington is President of the USA - that would put Rip's sleep as ending no sooner than 1789 and as late as 1794 (any later and the Revolutionary war would have started before he went to sleep). This would put his original bed-time as between 1769 and 1777. Since the Revolutionary war started in April 1775 he would need to have fallen asleep before then. That limits the exact time period as some roughly 20 year period between Autumn 1769 and Autumn 1794
