Sep 28, 2016 - The Catskills and Poughkeepsie

Travelled down through the beautiful Catskills and then onto Poughkeepsie with the longest pedestrian bridge in the world- another good fact for Theo! The bridge is well over a mile long so we went for a decent walk by the time we found the car again. It is getting chillier! Missing that evening warmth already!

Our Year Out

Jun 8, 2014 - First Congregational United Church of Christ - Poughkeepsie, NY

The First Congregational United Church of Christ in Poughkeepsie is an Open and Affirming Church as of 2007. They have always been on the forefront of human rights movements. According to their website http://www.opentogod.org/ "Of the first 73 men who joined FCC in the first four years, at least 40 were documented members of the Poughkeepsie Anti-Slavery Society or otherwise active in the abolitionist movement.

Jun 30, 2011 - Walk Over the Hudson

My sister, Dot, her husband, Jed, my mom, and I went down to Poughkeepsie in order to walk the new bridge over the Hudson River. Actually, the bridge isn't new; it used to be a railroad bridge that has been converted into a walking and biking trail. there are signs along the way that tell of the history of the area, importance of the bridge and how it was built, birds and fish found near here, as well as how the bridge was converted into this nice walkway. The day was beautiful and it was getting hot as we finished our walk back. Dot was...

Sep 9, 2008 - Poughkeepsie Train Station

Our primary goal for today was to find out all there is to know about our train ride into New York City which is scheduled for tomorrow. We wanted to know how to get to the train station, how long it would take to get there, the times of departure for Grand Central Station, where to park, and just how much will it all cost. If you know us at all, you know that we wanted all this information today because we don’t want any surprises tomorrow. So even though it was a 25 mile drive to Poughkeepsie, we went anyway. Besides, that is where the...

New York, 2008

Oct 7, 2006 - 10-7-06

10-7-06 Several adventures have passed since our last update. In respect for your time and my slow typing skills, I will try to keep this brief. On Friday the 6th we headed for Providence to tour the capital building. When you think of capital buildings, Providence should come to mind. A friendly guard greeted us at the door inspecting our 'carry-ins' and showing us where to start our tour. The regular tour guide had started so we opted to snoop around by ourselves. The inside was immaculate with the marble columns and shining stairs. It...

Sep 30, 2006 - Mid-Hudson shores

Today, I went with my sister, Dottie, to a park in Port Ewen to listen to a couple of bands play. A member of one band is a friend of Dot's husband, Jed, which is why we went there. The day was cloudy and cool, and it was hard to sit there for any length of time. The first band hadn't started yet, so after eating our lunch, Dot and I went for a walk along the streets on the riverside. It was hilly in spots, so the walk warmed us up. There was a variety of house styles to look at along the way - from old brick homes, to victorian mansions to...

Jul 18, 2006 - On the Bottom of the Hudson - Literally

July 18, 2006 Tarrytown, NY 41 04.5 73 52.1 Bite my tongue next time and do not warn every NYer that we are coming. Lined up on the eastern and western shores of the Hudson have been hundreds of people with their hands out, reaching for and effecting a very efficient transfer of wealth or as the 'administration' would say adding to the ever-important velocity of money. Needless to say the transfer is one way and the velocity is at an eye opening, startling rapidity. I stand admonished and in awe! We sit, literally, on the bottom of the...

Sep 13, 2005 - New Paltz, New York

Today we drove from Aunt Jo Ann and Uncle Charlies' to the KOA campground in New Paltz, NY. After we setup we drove out to the old farm. To our surprise there was a for sale sign on it. We took several pictures. We then drove to the cemetary where your Great Grandma and Great Grandpa Mulz are burried. After that we drove thru downtown New Paltz and up to Mohonk. Mohonk is a beautiful old hotel. We had a great dinner there.

Andy's Wanderings

May 13, 2004 - Day 4

For the first time on the trip our day began with a long drive, which we hoped might break our streak of tardiness, but no such luck. Everyone slept well last night and we would like to think this is not due to exhaustion but rather that we are acclimating to life on the road. At this point it doesn't really matter because we are all feeling great and are feeling a great sense of pride in LP, the same sensation the stores have displayed in carrying our books. The LP family now has set a routine of folding up our beds (they retract into...
