8/11 - lake Placid, NY - duff day - Day 57
 

The theme for today is: "Letís rack up them tourist points".

Today is the weekly duff day. We had a chance to get the clothes washed last night so the goal today was see the tourist sights. We started off with a trip to the Olympic Bob Sleds. A quick taxi ride took us 7 mile out of town to the actual bobsled run used in the í80 Olympics. During the summer you can take a ride down it. The driver and the brakeman are supplied and you go along for the ride. It was great!!! They claim that we reached 55 miles per hour. Later, we headed out to see the ski jumping venue.
 

 

Wow!! Olympic Bobsleds --- 55 Miles per Hour!!!
