It’s time for a summer weekend of hiking and lively discussions in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains! This year we are trying a new B&B (a little more rustic but more flexible to our needs) and a slightly different format.
The hiking will be moderate (by Adirondack standards), with a warm-up hike on Friday afternoon and a goodbye hike on Monday morning, led by AFW coordinators Georgette and Jackie.
Our book discussions have sorely missed the leadership of Lynne since her passing a few years ago, but we never seem to lack things to talk about! This year, we would like the discussion format to be about food and the food industry – the good, the bad and the OMG! Below we have listed books a few of us have read and look forward to participants recommending books as they sign up.
The following are books some of us have read:
- Eating on the Wild Side by Jo Robinson (no, it’s not about foraging!)
- Forks Over Knives by Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, edited by Gene Stone
- Wheat Belly by William Davis, MD
- Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser
The price includes 3 nights, double occupancy rooms, hiker breakfasts, and fix-your-own bag lunches at the Rock and River B&B, Keane, NY. Dinner costs are additional.
