Of course --in the car, house hunting!! I used to work in Napanee and a lot of people there hunt, so when I read Verona area, I read the phrase as: in the "cage-house", hunting.

This is a good awareness test: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47LCLoidJh4

Know any good house builders?
We drove through Verona around 11 am - highly likely it was us as I hardly saw a bike all day, although we did chat with another KLR owner, the "Mad Chef" at Maberly - great food at the restaurant there, by the way.

Want to rent my house this fall while you get your new home built?

Careful, you might end up with some unwelcome house guests who won't leave...

Don't know any good builders...

BUT....

I'll sell you my house for less than 250K in Newburgh. ($249K )
It's only 3300sq.ft finished with a 2+ car garage. And it is no tar paper shack!
I'm looking to downsize anyhow. lol

Got outbid, and there's no way I'm gonna play that game. Walked away from it.

Back to the hunt, down your way all day Friday looking at more overpriced junk, looking for a decent place.

Shoot me a PM if you have any questions about the area.

Happy to drive by any places that you're looking at also.

Thanks, I appreciate it. We've been planning this for years, so at least we're not totally lost in the area. Paid a lot of attention to the market and the prices, along with where the good riding is...

Looked at a place on Hinchinbrooke yesterday... I knew that was a great road, cause I hit it constantly when I'm out riding.

More house hunting tomorrow, got a meet with a builder too.

Hinchinbrooke is nice - good twisty paved section from Hartington to Desert Lake Rd, then the great dirt-road part that connects north to the Westport Road.

Took a neighbour of mine for his first ever motorcycle ride on Hinchinbrooke to Westport for dinner on Sunday evening - good times! He was riding my new-old Hawk 400 Tii, I was on the old faithful DRZ.
