Love the thread and awesome photos! Really enjoy your writing as well. Went to the SUNY ESF field camp North of Warrensburg when I was in college and try to get back to the ADK's every fall to hike with some friends.
I may be riding through your area in October this year (time and weather permitting) on the way to a reunion and if so, I'd love to hook up somewhere, even if only for a cup of coffe and some BS.
Thanks for a great thread, please keep it coming.
Let us know how the new seat works out, been considering adding one to my Christmas list
