Today we left Frosty Acres Campground in Schenectady, NY and headed off towards Lake George (note this post references our travel on 08/07/11 – yeah I’m a little late with posting). We’ve heard a lot of great things about the Lake George area … Continue reading »

A day of travel …and backing up!

We left the KOA Niagara Falls today, headed towards Lake George NY. We got off to a bit of a late start, but we kind of prepared for that the day before and we took care of a lot of the “pre-flight” stuff the night before.  It still took us about an hour and a … Continue reading »

Buffalo & Erie County Botanical Gardens

Today we spent a few hours at the Buffalo & Erie County Botanical Gardens . The gardens were only about 20 minutes away from the KOA Niagara Falls … this campground turned out to be a great central location for sights to see in the area. I’m sure we’ll come back out this way again as … Continue reading »

Niagara Falls – Evening into Night

After being here on Grand Island, only a few miles from Niagara Falls, we decided to head over to the falls tonight. The falls really are as beautiful and majestic as everyone says they are, but what’s up with the low tide smell? As soon as we got near the falls it smelled like low … Continue reading »

Rainy Day/TV Project Finished (almost)

After a night of thought, reviewing the IRV2 boards and lots of measuring, it was time to head down to the local Car Audio shop to see if they could modify the brackets and fascia for us. As it turns out, there are a couple of car audio shops on the main drag, as well … Continue reading »

Rainy Day Project

It was a blah, dreary, rainy day today when we got up, so we (well I) decided that it was a good day to take on replacing the front TV in the motorhome. There’s no cable TV hookup at the KOA Niagara Falls and last night we were stuck watching Rocky I on the over-the-air … Continue reading »

A day at Fantasy Island

Today we visited Fantasy Island, not Mr. Rourke’s Fantasy Island, but Martin’s Fantasy Island. (that’s a little IMDB trivia for those not old enough to remember). We really had a great day today. Martin’s Fantasy Island is a small theme park on Grand Island, NY (near Niagara Falls) that has rides and a water park … Continue reading »

A few days at KOA Niagara Falls, NY

We arrived at the KOA Niagara Falls, NY last night. We got here at about 8:02pm and the office was closed, but the staff inside was gracious enough to open up and give us a map so that we could get to our campsite. After our mistake at the last stop, it was nice to … Continue reading »

Spotted – Pontiac Silver Streak

You don’t see many of these around, and given that Pontiac is a deceased brand, it makes it even more interesting. I’m not sure what year it is. We saw this car in the parking lot at the WalMart in Herkimer NY – picking up supplies on our way to Niagara Falls.

50’s Sock Hop Night at Herkimer KOA

It’s sock hop and Ice Cream Social Night here at Herkimer KOA. We decided to go for a walk with Maya and check out the rest of the campground. It really is a great place, and filled with families of all sizes, with kids of all ages … and yes, Brody and I did go … Continue reading »
