Safe To Travel?

My wife and I are thinking of going to the Adirondacks (Lake Placid and Plattsburgh area) in the next few weeks before heading off to Montreal. Given that the 2 escapees are still at large, would you recommend going at this time or waiting until after they are caught? (Hopefully very soon) The plan was to spend 2 days in the Adirondacks.

Your thoughts are appreciated.

I really think that is a personal decision that only you and your wife can make.

Rjr is right, but I would say -- the Adirondacks are huge, and I can't imagine that two escaped convicts are going to choose the places popular with tourists to hang out. We are traveling to the Adirondacks this weekend as planned, and the people we know who live there continue on with their lives.
