Hi Everyone,

Would like to share driving and expenses with anyone coming from the Manhattan, NY vicinity.

Look forward to hearing from you,
Liza Whiting

Dear Liza,
Brigitte Bentele Aug 02, 2013 at 12:53 PM

I am taking a train to visit a friend on the way to the hiking trip, but I would love to share driving and expenses on the way back to Manhattan. Looking forward to meeting you. Brigitte Bentele
Liza Whiting Aug 06, 2013 at 05:09 PM

Hi Brigitte and thanks for your email. If I can't find someone to share the driving/expenses with I will need to buy a R/T ticket . . I am not familiar with the rental car situation in Lake Placid. Liza Whiting

Hi, Liza, the train will give you a chance to relax on both ways. My plans have also changed and I will take the train back too, stopping at my sister's. See you soon in Lake Placid. Brigitte
