In speech I use Adirondacks. In French however, I will often affectionately use, "les Addies", with a very short D and the accent on the 2nd syllable.

Typing on the net I either use ADK's, Dacks or Dax. One could take it one more step and use dx. It's kinda like using Pete instead of Peter, or Betty, Beth or Liz for Elizabeth. As in, "my name is Elizabeth but my friends call me Beth".
