Northwood Cabins

Busy weekend here in the Tri-Lakes. In addition to the late "leaf peepers," we had a couple of interesting races. The Saranac Lake 6er had their relay on Saturday. This is where teams of six complete all six mountains. Likewise we had the Tupper Triad Challenge here in Tupper Lake, New York as well.

This involves doing all three of the Tupper Triad peaks. This is done by individuals. It sounded like fun, and as we have climbed all three many times we thought we knew what we were in for.

It's 7.6 miles with about 1800ft of elevation. No big deal...

The race started at 9:00am at the Mt. Arab parking lot, then moved to Coney and finished on Mt. Goodman, with a cut-off time of 1:30pm. With the post race party at Big Tupper Brewing. We knew we were in trouble when we arrived in our hiking boots ,and pretty much everyone else was wearing sneakers.

So with that information we laid out our race strategy:

Don't die on the mountain.
Don't get lost.
Don't get a ticket driving between the mountains
Finish before the cut off time.
Get a good seat at the bar.

We are proud to say we accomplished them all.

We did slip and fall once coming down from Goodman, but are no worse for wear. Unlike a tree however, if a runner falls in the forest, they do make a sound, and it sounds like " G#D, D@m it, M$%&#r F&*#@r..."

With the leaves down, you did have to pay attention to where you were going, with no pack, or water, or food , or compass, or...a missed turn would have made for a rather uncomfortable afternoon waiting for the Rangers to arrive.

The drive from Arab to Coney took about a half hour even with the traffic lights in our favor and no Troopers on the road. But we arrived safely, in fact it was the only time all day we passed anyone.

Finished well before the cut off time, but well behind the leaders, it seems drinking Big Tupper beer all summer is not the same as actually training all summer. But we did manage to be the second runner to make it to the bar. So we got that going for us.

A big "Thank You" to all the volunteers, especially Jack who was greeting all the runners at the Coney trail head, he's a good boy.

We look forward to next year.. We hope you will join us, it was a great race. Word is it may take place a week or two earlier so we will still be open. Maybe we will offer 10% off your room, if you let the Inn Keeper beat you.😉

Northwood Cabins

"That's all folks."

The 2018 season has come to a close, thank you to everyone who chose to stay with us this year.

We have plans to continue to work on the Northwood Cabins in the off season which we will be sure share with you, but for now... we plan to sleep in late for at least a day or two.

We look forward to 2019.
