The Cooperstown KOA near Richfield Springs, New York is Home for tonight. We’ve enjoyed some state park stays but full hookups and a laundry room are in order for tonight to get ready for a week involving moochdocking, T@B storage, and a family visit. When we made a reservation through the KOA app promised beautiful, shaded back-in sites with great sunset views and we weren’t disappointed. We’re amid some lovely conifers and the view out our Stargazer, beyond the vacant tent sites, is of sunflowers, farm fields, and a gorgeous sunset as we listen to cows mooing, geese honking, and a horse drawing a buggy clip clopping down the lane. It’s a fine finish to a gentle day spent traveling the rolling hills of US-20 across New York state. We spent part of that drive remembering the first time the two of us made this drive. It was 1976 and we drove our silver 1971 Pontiac LeMans through here. In one of those quirks of memory, we know that we stopped for lunch in Morrisville, New York at a restaurant operating in an older house. It was fun as we drove through the town to try to guess which of those old houses along the highway did we dine in those many years ago and whether or not the restaurant was still in operation.

      When we were there in 2017 we enjoyed the National Baseball Hall of Fame. This trip we just stayed overnight on our way from Ohio to Massachusetts.

      And it’s always fun to hear from you! Upstate NY always delights us. Wish our paths could have crossed at the Ohio T@B gathering.
