    Headed North to the Finger Lakes, New York

    Marian and I are packed up with all our camping gear and the TW. We are headed out in the morning to camp with Tom Dryden and his family this weekend. I will be posting pictures of our adventure.

    Since Top and his wife are making the trip I planned on casually mentioning inviting you on a ride as well. Since he has publicly let the cat out of the bag on his own let me know and we will plan a ride around meeting you! I plan on exploring Finger Lakes National Forest for the first time! Nearly 17,000 acres that I have NEVER explored and it is just outside the campground There just has to be some decent seasonal roads throughout.

    If you get thirsty, go to "Two Goats Brewing" about a mile south of Smith Park. The owner rides dirt bikes. I used to camp at Smith Park when the kids were young and have driven through the Forrest many times but only saw trees. There is a nice little Diner on the side road near the gas station in Hector.

    We made it . It was a beautiful ride through the Allegheny Mountains. Boy did they use a lot of dynamite blasting a road through those mountains. GPS had our trip at 5 hours but with all the stops it took us 8.

    We enjoyed breakfast at this diner.

    Tom we took recommendation and had dinner at Jerlando's Italian Restrauant. I had the lasagna which was amazing and how about that super large pizza they make, its half the size of a kitchen table.
    It's rained it's ass off while we were eating dinner and then we found ourselfs at Watkins Glen Gorge. Wow that's an amazing place. I took some pictures of the falls but the pictures don't even come close to the reality of being there.
