    How does 10:00ish sound? Too early/ too late? Kinda dreading the early AM temps myself!

    I'M IN! Leaving here 7ish as long as its not still misting. Its a 4 hour drive to chucks. I went out for fish fry tonight so I will not be stopping at Jeans Beans until on the way home. See you folks around 11:00.

    They are talking a low of 46 tonight, so 7 is early as I care to leave.

    If you folks take off sooner, just leave a note here, I got lectronics on the bmw including wifi.

    SEEYA! :clap

    We could do a group tag and grab 8 tags....

    Did you mean to post in a Pocono area thread?

    I am planning on going though, but from the greater Albany area.

    Tom, we could ride south to you? Cause, yeah, I wouldn't be headed over the hill till 2pm tomorrow. It's chilly out there!

    It's 47 out right now. I don't think it'll drop much below 44. The Turbo is air cooled & likes it brisk, so I'll ride to you.

    Just save a cup of joe for me.

    6:20 AM 49*f here. 46 there.

    Leaving in 40 minutes.

    Getting off 81 in Adams Center going over the hill. I am not sure where chucks is, #4 road I think behind Lowville some where.

    Think about it, a suburb of Lowville. :D

    Crossroads are Number Four Road and Kotel Road.

    And yeah, if you miss this turn you'd best have your wilderness survival skill set squared away, cause the Adirondack Blue Line is right up the road and the bears would love to have you for dinner. :D

    Thanks for leading us on a great ride, Chuck! Those roads were fantastic. And thanks for letting me ride your KTM for a spell, it was a real treat.

    The only downer was that the locals seemed fascinated with Koyote's Tiger and the KTM. My old fossil and David's BMW got no love at all!

    It's funny, but I took the same photos as well.

    But here are the three key steps to having a great day in the North Country:

    Sorry for the grainy photos. I resized them in MS Paint. I have no clue what I'm doing when it comes to pics.
