    oneonta is only 30 mins east! sounds like you'll be heading down rt 7 or interstate 88. theres some good riding between here and nyc through the catskills. theres some very good tracks here an inmate has made and published for anyone to use, mostly down through walton and the catskills in general

    I plotted a route down some of the smaller roads last night across top of Oneida lake, Verona, caszanonvia, the 13, 64, and 23 looked good.

    I imagine I Will be in a Bar in Oneonta tonight before exploring Catskills tomorrow. Hoping weather turns on one good last day!

    Those should be decent roads yes, if you're going across 23 you'll be about 10 mins from my house if you need anything shoot me a message.

    Oneonta is a college town, there's a few good bars downtown as well as some interesting places to eat. Weather is looking pretty nice compared to this weekend and the colors in the Catskills will be great

    had lunch with peter in Cazenovia and after 5 days and 1300 miles said goodbye. For all of you who couldn't hook up with him you missed a great guy. Now I just have to beat my wife back down after all the nice shit he said to her.

    So I was focussed on running fuel down and filling up with ethanol free for winter storage!

    Mission accomplished!
