Jun 4, 2013 - Bath and Letchworth

Friday we headed north on 219 to I-86 and then east about 70 miles to the small community of Bath, NY. We are now set up at the Hickory Hills Family Campground just east of Bath. It is a large, well maintained, campground that is quiet at this time of the year. On Monday we drove the See Ya to the local Camping World for repair of one of the topper awnings on our large slide. While they worked on that we drove the Honda to Elmira for a little shopping and lunch. Unfortunately, the technician at Camping World declared the material in our...

Oct 29, 2012 - Visiting around Bath

The weather turned rainy on the 23rd but it didn't dampen our spirits or our fun. On the 23rd I had brunch with a good friend with whom I had taught in Elmira, NY, in the late 1960s. She always treats me to a meal out when I get home and we visit up a storm over many cups of coffee. My sister Barb has been able to join us for supper and lunch a couple of times plus chauffeur us around to see charming Hammondsport, the town recently voted the "coolest little city in America!" and more of Keuka Lake. We've been working together to coordinate...

Jul 18, 2011 - Bath area attractions

Spent the day at local attractions. First we traveled 15 miles to Corning and did some hands on glass forming. We each made a flower with the help of a student. We rolled the rod, pulled the petals and shaped the stems. The colors are not true when the piece goes into the annealing oven so it will be a surprise when we see the finished product. We are having both flowers shipped home. The second stop was the Bully Hill vineyard, a winery tour and wine tasting. This stop was recommended by a New Yorker we met on the caravan. This was a...

Steele summer 2011

Jul 17, 2011 - Bath, New York

We landed in Bath, N. Y. Spent most of the day on the interstate which was boring but made for efficient travel. We cheated on lunch and stopped at a Cracker Barrel because it finally warmed up and the camper is a little warm. We are parked is a real shady spot amoung the "seasonals", semi permanent campers with decks and a lot of outdoor furnature. I think that overstuffed sofas classify as outdoor furniture. There sure isn't room in their campers for them. I think this is a little red neck but is a good place to stay for a few days....

Jun 28, 2011 - First Leg Completed-- Bath, Ny

New York The first leg of our trip has ended. We are comfortably located at our campsite for the next 30 days. We traveled a total distance of 2958 miles. Yesterday was the first day since leaving Kentucky we did not have rain. There is very little to report, since I'm not too happy about all the rainfall we have endured and do not want to bore you with that. This will be the last entry on the trip journal until we start the second leg of the journey to our winter haven in Florida. I will send out an update at our first stop on that part of...

Apr 27, 2010 - Home again

Barb and I drove straight through from Columbus, Ohio to Bath about 6 1/2 hours a little over 400 miles stiff breeze all the way and when we got to Olean it started to EFIN snow. I'm going back to Arizona call me when it stops. We are glad to be home it's been a long hull and it's nice to see green grass and trees again. Looking forward to getting back to work and seeing everyone again.

Jul 25, 2008 - Buffalo? Let's try a Bath.

We started our earliest day of our young journey on Friday morning. We didn't unhook the car the night before, and didn't unpack anything. So getting ready to leave in the morning consisted of basically unplugging the extension cord and water line. So we beat the traffic out in the morning. Unfortunately, the GPS sent us on some county road and we were in need of fuel. It turned out not so bad because eventually we did get onto an Interstate and though getting gas became an adventure (by the way, you can back a motorhome with a car with all...

Roaming through 2008

Jul 14, 2008 - Finger Lakes Adventure

Greetings from the heart of New York's wine, gorge, and waterfall country. Are the interstates ever rough - like driving on old log roads!! We had forgotten how the freezing winter weather breaks up the roads. Using the bike makes it a little easier to miss the potholes! Good news! NY is into checking its bridges for structural integrity; bad news - there are a lot of bad bridges; good news - they seem to be fixing all of them at once - lots of road work. Letchworth State Park is considered the "Grand Canyon of the East Coast" We had to go...

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! 6/30-7/09 Lina and I spent these nine days at the Cardinal Campsite on West Hill, Savona. It is a seculded, spacious, private and well maintained campsite. Later we discovered that the owner was one of my former students. Fun discussing old times with him. We spent time visiting friends and family and entertained those who visited us. To celebrate the 4th, a trip to Hammondsport for the annual fireman's chicken BBQ and a walk around the carnival took up the day. That night we went to a high hill and watched a vast...
