Lock 5 of the Champlain Canal - Dignitaries meet the Common Man

It was early evening when the Common Man Tour arrived at Lock 5 of the Champlain Canal. On hand to meet him was Director Carmella Mantello of the New York State Canal Commission, as well as Mayor John T. Sherman of the Village of Schuylerville. Director Mantello offered complete support for our tour, while Mayor Sherman offered advice on eating establishments for our dinner. Overall, this was a win-win-win meeting for everyone.
Onward and upward, the Common Man Tour is headed North toward Fort Edward after a few down days of weather. But we will be there for our July 5th presentation at the Rogers Island Visitors Center, in spite of any weather delays.

Hello Roger - I read about your journey on the Saratogian site. Sounds like a marvelous adventure. I live in Fairport, NY near the canal - are you planning on stopping in Fairport? If so I'll go down and cheer you on.
