Twitter Reciprocity and #followfriday

May 1st, 2009 · 3 Comments · Adirondack Life

Today is Friday.  All you Twitter folks know what that means, #followfriday is the fashionable meme of the day. This post is LIVE DONE.

Elevate Your Rate w/the 46 Adirondacks High Peaks: Starting 2day we’ will match R rates 2 the elevations for 46 Days

I’m thinking that someone could theoretically climb the 46 relevant daily peaks during this special. Not only that, you could easily also add 46 Pints and 46 Grilled Cheese Sandwiches.

So really, it should be “Doing the 46-46-46, During the 46-46-46.

The 46er Peak List

March 27th, 2009 · No Comments · Destination Marketing

Have you met Nathan Winters?  Well I happened to run across him ….on Twitter. Kind of an interesting marketing case study.  You see, I followed VermontTourism cuz they are across The Lake and we are Brothers-in-Arms.

This is my response to his biking route query:

@tourpro Here is my basic route. If you can help that would be AWESOME!

First, you have to cross Lake Champlain.
