    Thought I'd make folks aware of the opportunity to explore historic sites within a short distance of Paul Smith's. Just prior to last year's Assembly,my daughter Emily and I visited the farm and gravesite of John Brown, which is a NY State Park and National Historic Landmark. We plan to do so again this year, probably the morning of July 15th. If anyone is interested in joining us, please contact me.

    Good ideas. The Wild Center in Tupper Lake is also a possible destination.

    If you are in Placid at JB's farm you are also pretty close (turn right) to the Olympic facilities. The Bob sled run and the Luge are open to the brave of heart throughout the summer. Whiteface is a nice drive for folks that do not want to cycle or walk up it.
    There are also many great canoe routes in the area that are worth a few extra days. The paddle from Blue Mountain Lake to Tupper or Saranac is worth doing and in stages if the whole trip is too much to bite off.
    If anyone wants to know some possible routes PM me and give me an idea of how many days you would like to be out and what kind of water and carrying you are comfortable with. I would be willing to share some possible paddles.
    If you are in "the Park" you should take a look around if you have time for it.

    There are also some really fine hikes in the park.
    Information about these can be found here:http://www.adkforum.com/
