Lynch will appear as part of an American Alpine Club mixer at the Guides House at 2733 Main Street, next-door to High Peaks Cyclery. The mixer and membership drive will run from 6 to 9 p.m. Lynch’s one-hour presentation will start at 7 p.m., preceded by a barbecue. The event is open to the public.

A writer for the Adirondack Daily Enterprise, Lynch spent forty-five days this summer paddling from Old Forge to northern Maine. He is one of about forty paddlers who have done the Northern Forest Canoe Trail end to end. During his slide show, he will discuss the highlights and challenges of his journey.

After his trip, I e-mailed a number of questions to Lynch. You can read his responses on Adirondack Almanack.
