We will keep updating this list as more items are donated.
Paul Misko has been hiking in the Catskills since his youth and has been researching its history for many years. He has written many articles and given lots of talks on Catskill hiking and history, with a focus on the tanning industry, and John Burroughs. He is the founder of the Catskill 4000 Club, a small but pithy hiking group.
Paul’s presentation is entitled “Packed for Adventure” and in it he will show us the equipment, food, and clothing used by Catskill hikers in the 1800's through the 1900's. He will share many funny and disturbing anecdotes found in the writings of John Burroughs, Longstreth, and others. Be assured that you will hear things about John Burroughs you never knew. The talk will close with a quick review of what every Catskill hiker should carry.
The space for the dinner is limited, so make sure to purchase your tickets as soon as possible!
