Welcome to the world of the unemployed.

Upstate was my old stompin' ground. From Saratoga to Ticonderoga to Malone. Gouverneur, Rochester, Buffalo, and yes Ithaca and Elmira Heights. and all points between. Wanted to live in the Adirondaks, but DW's better judgement prevailed, and we snow birded Florida to Central IL. I can remember 10 feet of snow ... on the level.
You didn't ask, but spending lots of time picking a new home is a guarantee of being happy.

Best wishes for your new life.

That is impressive. Somewhat similar a guy next street over carves toothpicks.

Dunno, if he ever tried.

He buys toothpicks by the carton. Then carves faces and critters on the tootpick. Often looses them and finds them years later in nooks and crannies around the house.

Hey it took me a couple of years to figure that out. Had the best summer vacation ever last year. Fall and winter have been great too. Enjoy!
