    Lake Placid

    September 18, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    1932 und 1980 war Lake Placid Austragungsort der Olypischen Winterspiele und wenn man schon mal in der Nähe ist... 😉
    Und als wir dort ankamen, fühlte es sich auch tatsächlich nach einem Wintersportort im Spätsommer an und es gab kleine gemütliche Restaurants und einen 'Starbucks'! Da sind wir doch glatt eine weitere Nacht geblieben :) und sind dann auch noch ein wenig durch die Läden geschlendert 🙃Read more

    Lake Placid

    August 16, 2016 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 19 °C

    After Albany, the rain continued with vengeance and as we entered the Adirondacks the temperature dropped below 20 for the first time since we arrived. Driving through the Adirondacks was unbelievable though, and as the rain eased it was warm enough that it rose off the trees, creating a beautiful scenic drive. Sadly the high ropes course we had hoped to go on had sent out their last group by the time we arrived, so we carried on driving reaching over 2000ft above sea level. We spent the evening wandering around mirror lake and enjoying the comforts of our hotel, whilst planning how to make the most of tomorrow...and enjoying a few beers ☺Read more

    Tag 4, Ziel: Vermont

    October 9, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 8 °C

    Über den Highway 3 geht es quer durch die Landschaft. Vieles sieht ärmlich aus, auch in Newton Falls, wo wir eine kleine Kaffeepause einlegen. Dafür gibt es in Natural Bridge einen riesigen Friedhof an dem wir bestimmt 1/2 Meile entlangfahren. Göttergattin vermutet schon, das sei der einzige in den Adirondack :-)

    Den Cranberry Lake haben wir rechts liegen lassen, dafür einen Blick auf die Goose Bucht am Tupperlake geworfen bevor es nach Lake Placid (1980 & 1932!) geht. An dem Willkommensbären kamen wir dann nicht vorbei.... Der Rest ist schnell erzählt: alpines Dorf mit jeder Menge Touristen, ziemlich überlaufen und den 'üblichen' Geschäften für Souvenirs, Klamotten, etc.

    Working On My Routes

    August 27 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 72 °F

    Picking up on yesterday, I continued south to Massachusetts to get the state's 50 Rides 1 Nation stop. What a great road! Best of all, you don't have to backtrack almost 7 miles after making the summit. I came in from the north, and if you exit from south then you pop out only five miles or so from the Harley dealership.

    From there, I continued on towards Albany to collect a few more dealerships, then swung back north to get to the hotel at about 20:00. It was a really nice day of riding.

    I hit the hotel, did a little bathroom thing, changed shirts, then walked a few blocks north to the Pickled Pig for the rally cornhole tournament. Not surprising it was over before I got there because there were only four teams. But cornhole was the only evening event scheduled for the rally 😳😭. I talked to a couple nice people and then went back to the hotel to crash.

    Yay! I did not have to get up when my alarm went off because my alarm did not go off, but I still woke up at 07:00. [Why is there not a poo emoji with a frowny face?!]

    I'm working on my routes now.

    So long [for now], and thanks for all the fish! ✌️
