Lake Desolation's Plank Road Trail

As we continue to try to finish our biking book for the Saratoga Region, we came across this forest character along the trail. Just thought we would share it with you.

Oh, and BIG news is pending in the arena of our Common Man Exploration series of outdoor books.

Look for a major announcement soon.

1000 Islands Tour - August 1-4

I will be in the 1000 Islands area from August 1-4, 2009.
If you would like a presentation, a booksigning or even just a meeting, now is the time to schedule it.
We have historical Powerpoint programs from the Battle of Cranberry Creek, to what we found on our 300 Miles of History in 2007 as we retraced the French and Indian War routes, including the St. Lawrence River. Our most recent presentation celebrates the Quadricentennial and compares and contrasts Champlain’s explorations to what we found 400 years later along the St. Lawrence River and Lake Champlain in 2007.
Access all of our existing programs at;
The evening of August 4 has already been reserved by the Clayton Library. The other dates and times are currently up for grabs, first come, first served.
Thanks for your interest,
