I love your Life in the Finger Lakes magazine! I look forward to each issue. I am a three-year subscriber and have given it as a gift. I have a special request. I really enjoyed the article on kayaking the 11 Finger Lakes (Part 1, July/August 2021). That has been my goal too! I have completed eight and the last three for me are Owasco, Otisco, and Skaneateles. Unfortunately part 2 of the article is the one that will have information on those lakes and will probably come out in the September/October issue. I wondered if the authors have already written part 2 and if there is any way you could possibly email it to me? I would love to read their info about where to launch and any interesting attractions to visit around those 3 lakes before I go kayaking there this summer.
Thank you for considering my request.

Thank you for your interest. I’d be happy to share links to our digital versions from previous issues where we listed public boat launches for the lakes in which you’re interested. Please visit our “past issues” page on fingerlakesmagazine.com, and view the digital magazines for March/April 2020, and September/October 2020.
I hope this gives you some information that’s helpful. Thank you!
I enjoyed learning that Purity Ice Cream is still going strong (JulyAugust 2021). I, like many Cornellians over the years, enjoyed the occasional break from studies with a “Purity run.” Even better, my 5th year apartment was in a Stewart Avenue building owned by the Guenterts, and after each holiday my roommates and I could count on Mr. G showing up with a left-over holiday-themed ice cream roll. Sweet memories from sixty years ago!
