What I find funny. Is the Adirondacks really a brand? When a salesguy in charge of Tourism Marketing calls me from Michigan and wants Long Lake to advertise in its USA Today National Travel Parks Magazine and I explain the size of my town and the size of my budget he’s still insistent on selling me an ad for my city. So I stop him an say “David, I’m not a city” Then I break down that I’m in the Adirondacks and he really needs to be focusing on bigger money, and that my teeny budget can only be stretched so far, he interrupts and says : “AdderDax?” “What’s that, how do you spell that?” Adderdacks? Umm… So I respond by saying, well The Adirondacks is 6.1 million acres of public and private land in Upstate New York that equals the size of Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Glacier,and Great Smoky Mountains combined.
