FC: Our First Americade Rally | New York June 2010
1: MOTORCYCLING | What a beautiful view! | The Americade Rally was held on Lake George in beautiful upstate New York.
2: Our journey to upstate New York was quite adventurous . . . We became REALLY well-acquainted with Red Roof Inns . . . Bear & Jack did well traveling, even though Bear had to ride in the truck when it was REALLY hot . . . a GPS can take you on a REALLY long route if you program it to avoid toll roads, highways & bridges . . .
3: Mark was behind the wheel for several days | New York is a long, long way from Florida . . .
4: This was a very long bridge with two underwater tunnels . . .
5: The first night we were all awakened by some very strange noises . . . | Joni was the mastermind . . . | Bob's contribution was to put his feet up and relax . . . | She rented us a two-story home with four bedrooms, three baths, a laundry room for Gus, and Joni made us the BEST blueberry pancakes.
6: The expressway cut right through this cemetery . . .
7: On our first night in Bolton's Landing, the guys were left to pay the bill while the girls checked out the shops . . .
8: Kathy scoped it out | Ashley's Cafe | It was quite quaint | We also got to see where the Winter Olympics were held.
9: The serious table | The happy table | Our First Ride was to Lake Placid | We were seriously sold on their hot caramel apple cider. Starbucks just couldn't compare to this one.
11: The Vermont Covered Bridge Tour was incredible and we were served a delicious lunch at a 'bear-y' posh country club.
12: Kathy dealing with school issues before the ride | Hundreds of bikers lined up for the tour | We were in the first wave of riders | We saw lots of beautiful countryside
13: Our first pit stop was a MickeyD's & Kathy switched rides | O | It was a lot easier to snap photos on the back of a Gold Wing
14: It was a beautiful day to ride . . . the air was crisp. . . the sun was shining . . . the scenery was breathtaking . . . and Kathy wasn't in pain on the Gold Wing | WOW
15: WOW | WOW
16: More covered bridges
17: We saw 7 in all
19: Dinner Cruise sponsored by Honda
20: Rich has been replaced by . . .
21: Honda's dinner couldn't compare to the country club's lunch, but our table won lots of prizes . . . Joni won two jackets, Bob won a tee shirt and Mark won a thumbdrive. We saw some impressive homes along the way too.
22: Our beautiful cabin where we shared lots of food and laughter
23: Georgie is serving up the delicious apple pie that we bought at our special little shop in the shed
24: The Guys pose in their matching Lake George tee shirts . . . | Gus | Jane & Dave | Bob & Joni | Kathy & Mark | Georgie & Rich
