Sep 10, 2015 - Waterloo NY

The short 2 hour drive east from the Buffalo area was painless and dentless and we pulled into the Waterloo Harbor Campground, aptly named as it is in Waterloo, NY (the birthplace of Memorial Day) just before 2:00. We had gotten a bit of a late start because I had to replace our ice maker and since it had been a holiday weekend, I couldn't even pursue finding one till the appliance parts places opened around 9:00. The purchase and installation all went pretty well and so far it's working, but with my history of home repair miscues it's too...

Oct 21, 2013 - Waterloo, NY

Ce matin nous avons pris la route vers 10h00 et avons passé les douanes américaines vers 11h20 on a attendu environ 30 minutes. J'ai fait le plein à Watertown, à $4.099, ce qui donne $1.08 le litre, pas mauvais du tout et ça devrait diminuer un peu plus en allant vers le sud. Nous sommes au camping du petit village de Waterloo, c'est un beau village avec de superbes maisons. Nous avons fait une grosse épicerie chez mononc Wally, le frigo était complètement vide. Ce soir on va regarder un peu de tv et au dodo, nous sommes fatigués.

Aug 24, 2013 - Geneva and produce

We went to Geneva falls to the women's rights historic site. There are no falls now, have been diverted to reduce flooding and accomodate a bridge and dam. There is a boat cruise that goes on the canal here, we didn't take it as we had already gone through the locks in Lockport. We did see the film at the Womens Rights memorial but didn't do more, the film was less historical and slanted toward the "womens rights/war on women" ideology of today and we just didn't enjoy it. In Waterloo itself there is a museum about the first Memorial Day...

Aug 23, 2013 - New York state fair

Obama was in Auburn last night, planning to go to Binghamton today so we decided to go to Syracuse to the state fair, hoping to avoid traffic tie ups. It worked today, no blockage on I90 or into town. The state fair has been held in Syracuse since 1909 and there were many permanent buildings dating back 100 years or more. We went through the entire grounds and saw some cloggers perform, also a dog act. We saw lamas, pigs, cows and calfs being judged as well as horses and all the other animals one would expect at a fair. There was a fabulous...

Aug 22, 2013 - Eastman museum

We drove to Rochester, hoping to avoid the Presidential traffic tie up as Obama was going from Buffalo to Syracuse, we thought. As it turned out, he had lunch in Rochester on Park Avenue, just a few blocks from the Eastman museum. As we drove I90 to Rochester we saw yellow transit authority trucks at each cut through on the interstate and it was ominus, but we got off at the thru way into Rochester at just the right time, I thought. Then we were immediately in traffic crawl as we approached the museum, couldn't cut through side streets as...

Aug 21, 2013 - Curtiss museum and Corning glass factory

Today we took a long drive down the finger lakes and passed many, many wineries. This is prime winery country although that's not our "thing" so we didn't stop until we arrived at the Glenn H.Curtiss Museum in Hammondsport. It is on Lake Keuka, one of the smaller lakes. This wonderful museum includes the motorcycles he started building and then progresses to the planes he built. Also has info on his real estate interests in SE Florida. The museum is at the old factory location. We then made it in time to the Corning Museum of Glass. It's...

Sep 26, 2011 - Seneca Falls and Wine Country

When I began to prepare this entry I discovered that all the pictures I took today and yesterday had disappeared from the chip in my camera. I have no idea how that happened. John took a few pictures, so we will work with those. Today we drove into Seneca Falls to visit the tourist information center. We found more interesting information that we will ever have time to deal with today. We found lunch at Parker's Grille and Tap House downtown. After lunch we went to the It's a Wonderful Life Museum. It is a small, but interesting place. Most...

Sep 21, 2011 - Junius Ponds Campground

Leaned that the GPS devices are far from perfect. We were searching for this park and it took us down a county road. We could see RV park on the other side of the freeway. Sure enough a guy in a huge 5th wheel coming the other way. He said his OnStar took him to the exact wrong place as mine had done. He told me about where he turned around down the road. Nice couple from Alabama. Went To Seneca Lake and ate lunch at Belhurst. Stopped at cheese farm and got some goodies.

Jun 25, 2008 - Planning for New York

We arrived today at the campground that will be our home for the next month or so. In 2003 we began taking “extended trips” which were 6 months in length (May to November). We quickly realized that this was something we liked to do and could visualize ourselves living in an RV and traveling fulltime. It wasn’t until this year that that dream has become a reality. Even though we have been living in our Montana for almost 3 years, we were only traveling 6 months of the year. The other 6 months we were in Nashville at our jobs. We think we...

Sep 14, 2007 - Travel Day to Waterloo...

A slight change of plans. We decided this morning to drive through New York and come into Vermont in the southern portion & cut up to Maine from there. Two reasons, we want to catch the Finger Lake region in NY & we want to visit Larry's brother Jerry & his family. They live just outside of Albany. The color changes are running a couple of weeks behind as best we can tell so we don't have to rush. We had planned to see Jerry in October but now seems to be perfect. We are looking forward to visiting him & his lovely wife Ann. So, our drive...
