The Slide Farm (and Cherikee Red)

That's Roland and Louise Flora who for years handmade neckerchief and bolo slides for the Boy Scouts of Ten Mile River Scout Camp up in Narrowsburg New York. They are both gone now, be many of us have memories of going into their small workshop on Route 97 and seeing him hand carve, and her paint, the pieces. The Floras lived on the property which was once a motel with small cabins throughout the property. One of these became the workshop. Campers would hike to the "slide farm" place their custom order (to be picked up the end of their stay at camp) and also perhaps to buy a Cherikee Red to fight the heat.
