We had an easy travel day Friday, September 23rd from Lake George to a fairly new campground in Macedon NY called Twilight on the Erie. While they’re still having some growing pains, it was a comfortable place to stay for a few days while we visited with Jane’s Aunt Lois and Uncle Ward. They live a few miles from the campground in Pittsford. After getting setup early Friday afternoon Jane did some grocery shopping and I tweaked a few things on the coach. We headed over later and picked up Lois & Ward and enjoyed a nice dinner with them at the Outback Steakhouse. Saturday I went over and picked them up and we also stopped and picked up Jane’s Aunt Joyce and they all came over for a visit to the RV to see our HomeOnWheels. After hanging out at the coach a while, we all headed back to Lois & Ward’s house and met their daughter Wendy there who brought over an awesome salad and lasagna lunch along with a wicked good ice cream cake in celebration of her husband Mark’ birthday (Happy birthday Mark!).
Sunday we drove to Syracuse to a (supposed) big RV show which was unfortunately not that big and mostly for weekend campers with small travel trailers and 5th wheels, not even any parts and accessories. But, after that Jane remembered we weren’t far from a Dinosaur BBQ restaurant. Our friends from Maine, Manfred and & Diane used to live in the area and had highly recommended it. We had a great lunch and sat outside in the warm sun.
On the way home we stopped at a local farm stand for some fresh picked apples. Great to have a fresh Cortland! Then we had to stop in Palmyra where there’s an intersection on Rt 31 that has 4 churches (info here). Literally 1 church directly on all 4 corners of the intersection. Not sure how a town of 3500 supports 4 churches, but there they are. Took a panographic but couldn’t quite squeeze the 4th church in completely so 2nd pic is the 4th church.
When we got back Sunday afternoon, the next day being a move day, we started the preparations for traveling the next day like bringing in the awnings, and the Magneshades, clothesline, mounting the bikes on the carrier on the Jeep etc. We were treated to a pretty sunset our last night here. Tomorrow we start our southward migration!
Tomorrow we have an easy 85 mile ride to Horseheads NY. This will be our first “Boondockers Welcome” stay. More to come in next post on that. We also plan to visit the Corning Glass factory and perhaps tour some finger lakes wineries.
