In an hour we will be traveling south to Old Forge, NY to participate, for the 6th year in a row, in the Adirondack Canoe Classic-90 miler. It is a race that takes place over 3 days. Tomorrow, 10 Sept. 2010 we will paddle to the start line at tThe Old Forge Public Beach. We will proceed across Old Forge Pond and paddle 1.5 miles of channel to first Lake. We will follow the Fulton Chain of lakes thru second, third, and fourth lakes. Fourth Lake is 5.5 miles across then thru another channel at the Town of Inlet and cross a small body of water called 5th lake. Next we carry thru Inlet to sixth lake. That's just the start........

At the end of the day we will make shore at the Beach at Blue mountain Lake after completing 34 miles including 3.5 miles of carries.
