Sep 15, 2012 - Going over the Catskill Mtns.
Today was a bright beautiful day with big white fluffy clouds. We had rain last night but neither of us know how long it rained. Long enough for our 4 x 6 piece of artificial grass (we put under our step) to get sopping wet. We left Plattekill, NY and headed up to the Catskill Mountains. We stayed on the tollroad most of the way. We have seen enough poor little country roads. Jumped on the 28 going over the Catskills and began to see many more country roads. There were lots of OLD farms and villages/towns. The highest point in the Catskills...Jump to full entry
Sep 1, 2012 - If you like barns ...
From Oneonta, New York … Saturday, September 1, 2012 We enjoyed another beautiful day here in upstate New York. The highs were in the low 80s which made it perfect for touring around the countryside. After sleeping in a bit late, we went out for breakfast. The Neptune Diner here in Oneonta fed us very well. Their food was very tasty and perfectly cooked. We spent most of our day exploring some scenic routes in the area. My photos will tell the story of what we found along the way … neat tiny towns and pretty farms. It is just a beautiful...Jump to full entry
Aug 31, 2012 - All things Baseball in Cooperstown
From Oneonta, New York … Friday, August 31, 2012 I think our days will be so busy on this trip that I will have to keep my journal entries fairly brief. My main focus is always to update with as many pictures as I can which I’m sure I can do! Yesterday morning we left Pennsylvania after breakfast. We didn’t leave the hotel as early as we had hoped, but it worked out fine. We were a little worried about the traffic today as it is the start of the Labor Day weekend. But actually, the section of I-81 we traveled on today was not nearly as...Jump to full entry
Aug 29, 2012 - Take Me Out to the Ballgame!
Oneonta, NY, where the rv park is located, is only 28 miles from Cooperstown, home of National Hall of Fame and Museum. We decided to stay today and made the trek to Cooperstown. Cooperstown is a small town, population 2800; devoted to the sport of baseball; contains many large, two-storyVictorian homes built on the shores of Oneta Lake. The Hall of Fame is three stories, located in downtown. The displays are well organized with LOTS of memorabilia. All of the items on display has been donated; nothing has been purchased. Parking is...Jump to full entry
Aug 28, 2012 - On The Road ***Susquehanna Trail Campground, Oneonta NY
It rained all through the night, and was still raining when we were ready to depart. We had decided to go on the Auto Tour Road to the top of Mt. Washington but the rain, fog, and low clouds changed our mind. It was on the road all day. We have been on a mixture of narrow, curvy, bumpy state roads which are scenic, and interstate which has also been scenic. We drove the length of New Hampshire, across Vermont, and nearly a quarter of the way westward across NY. We are stopped for the evening with no plans to go out. Homemade nachos sound...Jump to full entry
Oct 1, 2011 - Day 33
This evening the Oneonta High School Class of '61 held it's 50th reunion at the American Legion. We had a great turnout for the event, although quite a few of the local alumni decided not to attend. I was there from AL and we had a couple of guys from CA. All in all, a great weekend.Jump to full entry
Jun 13, 2011 - Road Day!
After awaking this morning we saw Dave was out spreading mulch around Jan's flower beds. So we went outside the RV and Dave and Jan came over to the RV and we were chatting when Jan said to Dave give Tom a ride on the "quad". That is an ATV on 4 wheels. So Dave took it out of the garage and off they went with Tom on the back through the woods. While they were gone Jan was showing me all of her flower beds. They are beautiful as you can see in the photos. They even found what could be from old stage coaches from around the seventeen hundreds...Jump to full entry

/// Wednesday - September 29, 2010 Low Temperature: 60 degrees High Temperature: 74 degrees A travel day.

Sep 17, 2010 - Aug 25-31, 2010 Oneonta,NY
Susquehanna Trail Campground We had never been to Vermont before so we took the roughly 2 1/2 hour drive to get there and then drove some more to see the beautiful countryside. We drove up the 7 and wound through the Green Mountain National Forest. The forest here is beautiful but really different than that of the forest farther south. Our past drives we had gotten used to the oaks and the Spanish moss hanging down which was truly amazing. These trees are pines and beech trees. The leaves are already beginning to turn so it is ablaze with...Jump to full entry
Jun 30, 2010 - visit in Oneonta
Pat and Judy are good friends of mine who were doing business in Oneonta for the day, so I drove up to meet them for supper and a little sight seeing and catching up on things. We ate at a well-known barbeque restaurant and then drove though Hartwick College grounds and SUNY Oneonta. Hartwick has some great architecture and students have to be in good shape because of the hills needed to climb to get from building to building or to the athletic fields. Their athletic department is supposed to be very good and I can see why! SUNY Oneonta is...Jump to full entry
Apr 22, 2010 - Oneonta, NY - Susquehanna Trail Campground
/// Thursday - April 22, 2010 We woke to some strange looking stuff on the grass this morning. I didn't have my Davis weather station set up - so I can only guess that it was frost....! Once the sun was up, it warm up rapidly. We were already hitched up so all I had to do was disconnect some hoses and we were ready to hit the road. What a difference a day makes. After yesterday I was a little apprehensive about the road conditions today but was pleasantly surprised. It turned out to be a nice ride. We traveled a distance of just 212 miles....Jump to full entry
May 2, 2007 - Oneonta, NY
May 2, 2007 We arrive at Susquehanna Trails RV Park in Oneonta, NY. This park is still recovering from flood damage the previous fall. We use this park as a base as we visit friends and family in the region. We are anxious to visit with Doug & Janet and to share some of our travel stories. We make contact with all our family in the area and now it is time to return to our home base in Vermont.Jump to full entry
