Hey Chuck. Send me a PM. I live just a few miles from you (Poughquag). Maybe we can take a ride or two this spring.It's about 160 miles for me with most of it parkway and highway. I would not want to take that trip alone. Who knows, maybe I could go with the guy I bought my bike from. He has a Goldwing Trike.
I am SERIOUSLY thinking of going and plan on those exact same days. As of now, the idea would be to spend a night in Binghamton (maybe catch a game at NYSEG), ride to Americade the next morning, find a decent hotel with an open room somewhere nearby, spend half the next day then ride on to visit my uncle & aunt in Shushan. Haven't got it all worked out yet but maybe another 2,000 miles from there before I get home.Another year, another Americade. I am planning on going this year also. I'll be there from June 9th thru 11th. If anyone is planing to go let me know and we'll meet if possible.
Ideally I'd find something like these: Hidden Valley Motel and Judy's Motel plus Two Rivers Lodge. Great spots all three. Trouble is you can't be sure it isn't a dump until you get there. Places like that don't tend to sort to the top of the search sitesI don't know a lot about the Motels around the area Art, but I think if you search here you should find something to your liking and price range.
Getting even more likely. Aunt and uncle in upstate Connecticut (about three hours from ones in Shushan) are dangling out incentives for me to stop by after leaving New York -- which has been part of the plan all along.If you do decide to go please reach out and we can meet.http://www.hotels.com/de1492967/hot...w9o38457.d.c&gclid=COHR6Ib9rssCFdGQHwod_WsLPw
The actual Event starts to shut down around noon on Saturday. I don't buy a full pass because I'll only go one time and pay at the door. The rest of the time we're either riding or doing other things.Posting here rather than PM because maybe someone is lurking.
@Harryc , are you buying a pass for Americade? I see they've got them for $69 to $139 but I don't know if any of them are worth the money.
Plus: What time does it usually wrap up on Saturday? I've got no definite destination until the 14th so I plan on cruising around New England but need to figure out if I'm even going into Lake George on the last day.
Yea I have been lurking here as I am only about 2hrs. away. The only interest I seem to have in Americade would be to meet up with some fellow HSN members for whatever wherever decided. That said the wife and I rode last Sunday and passed the turn (three of them actually) to Shushan which is only about an hour from home.Posting here rather than PM because maybe someone is lurking.
Harryc and I are planning to meet there on the 9th. Probably in the parking lot at Scotty's but that's tbd. I'll be staying in Glen Falls because Scotty's wouldn't let me book only 3 nights.The only interest I seem to have in Americade would be to meet up with some fellow HSN members for whatever wherever decided.
You'd love VT Art. Some great riding up along route 7 and along Lake Champlain. Bill could probably give you a short list of the best rides. Lake Champlain is specatcular. You have the VT farmlands on one side and look across the Lake at the Adirondacks. There's lots of mountain riding also in the interior.Vermont will be a definite; despite growing up in New England I've never set a foot down in VT. Been through it more times than I could count but always inside a car.
