    Check it out.
    That's our route, I been up that way a lot and I think it is the fastest and it's all highway. [/B]
    Hmmm... that is interesting. I-87 turns into the New York State Thruway. Take that to Exit 23. Which will take you right onto I-787. Which of course is farer south of I-90 exit. So, you will be getting onto I-787 coming from the south instead of from the east.

    If you get on to I-787 from the south then the Hudson River will be on your right and downtown Albany will be on your left.

    Botton line again is that you have to get to NY Rt.7. There is no easy way to get around downtown city of Troy. So stay the course and just follow NY Rt.7 until you get to VT.

    At Albany the NYS Thurway(I-87) takes a hard left and becomes I-90. I-87 continues north but it is called the Northway which is toll free.

    OH!! that is why I-88 is better than I-87. It is toll free. Both I-87 & I-90 out of Buffalo are toll. I-88 is the ticket. Free plus it is a pretty ride.

    There may be construction on I-80 though, and that could suck big time.

    The thing is, ya drive almost an hour to the airport, get there 2 hours early cause of the sappy laws and so called security, 1.5 hour flight then land, spend another 2 hours getting luggage and getting to Beenientown plus you don't have a car while you are there.
    That's like 6 hours.........for another couple ya can drive it.
    I think we will fly to Colorado though.

    What is the closest airport to where Scott lives? I like flying when I don't lose my stuff.


    Talking about kids. Young Patrick (presidential assistant) and I were discussing getting you all up to camp. We have a government parking lot on the trailhead which is about less than 1/4 mile from camp. We can drive right up to camp if you know how to manuver around the waterbars and such.

    Being that a lot of folks have rented cars we thought it would best that you park in the government lot. aka "Little Pond Parking." Young Patrick can shuttle you up and down the trail on the Kabota. We can get 6 at a time in the Kabota. It will be like a hay ride. Or it would be a nice leisurely walk also, weather permitting. How's that sound. The hotel is approx. 11 miles from the Little Pond Parking. So you'll probably car pool up the mountain.

    It would just be embarassing to lose a muffler on a rented car. "I filled the tank and here are some parts of your damn car."

    I may have to rent a car myself if my truck is not ready in time.

    To get out of Dodge, I use my Dodge

    Has taken me to many states so far and will continue to do so as soon as it gets better.

    In the meantime, I think I'm going to take a chance on this crappy Explorer I just bought for a third vehicle.

    When isn't there construction on I-80??

    actually eastbound is all open I believe but westbound could be a mess depending on when you hit it.

    (Thats between Williamsport and I-81)
