    I really love that area. Camped at Lake Durant a bunch of times, there are a few sites right on the lake. You can hear the loons all night.

If you have the time, make sure to visit the Adirondack Museum on Blue Mt Lake. Wonderful exhibits and a great way to learn the history of the region.
    Had the pleasure of doing so during that short stay. Great take. I especially enjoyed the old logging exhibits. Men were men back then! And it looks like we stayed right near your place .. we were at the Prospect Point cottages.

    The postcard collector doesn't seem to have loyalties towards any team, but is interested in college hockey; I know I discuss it with him for a little bit in between rounds.

    Very cool. One of the guys I play trivia with at the bar on Tuesdays collects postcards, and has a few old ones of Underwood.

    So after all of this, does anyone know if the team is staying out of town? I can't see the Union approving the expense although it does make sense.
    I didn't e-mail Kevin about it. Was thinking about it, but wasn't sure how weird that question would sound. Perhaps someone could call in to Slap Schotts tomorrow morning?

    OK. Then back to northern NY. BTW, I wrote earlier that I was on a bus in 1963 traveling through Underwood on the way to Lake Placid It must have been earlier than that, between 1960 and 1962. I am sure that I have pictures, probably labeled, from LP, but I am too lazy to look for them. I spent a month there at the time.
