Vacation Thread 🧵


Recommended Posts



Do you guys keep up with work email while on vacation? I usually read it and answer the ones I can. I have a company smart phone. Also have my computer, but I don’t plan on cracking it open.

Have fun.

No, I try not to check work emails while away. Every time I do it’s a mistake. My direct staff can text me if there is an issue I alone can handle, but fortunately they never do.

The Clifton Springs rest stop is one of the finest in NY. The urinals(not pictured)are awesome.

Sounds lovely.  Have a great time!

We’ll be in your neck of the woods for most of the trip. Hudson Valley. Near Hyde Park. I can’t remember but I think you’re closer to the big city.

We’re in for the night. A couple drinks at a bar in the village followed by Doug’s Fish Fry. A super popular Simple fish restaurant. Until tomorrow.

Happy Monday. BuffCarla’s Birthday!!  Everything I wanted to do today is closed. All banks, public offices and schools are also closed today for BuffCarla’s birthday.  We have dinner reservations tonight at the Hotel’s Restaurant. Took a walk around the village while she finished sleeping.

You need to go back and get a picture.  You can't tell us something as important as a urinal is awesome and then not share a picture.

Give Carla a happy birthday kiss on the cheek from me.   I hope your vacation is better than Parr8's.

A good friend lived beside the real Uncle Tom's cabin historic site....home of Josiah Freeman.  

Village of Buxton, was also the site of black intelligensia community....there was more than 1 doctor. Abe Lincoln visited this community...

We’ll have to visit after the border opens. Those places are 4-5 hour drive away.

Sort of damp again today, but the next few days should be nice.  Good chance to do your outdoor activities.

Went to a restaurant down by the river a bit ago - Mariner's Harbor.  I enjoyed it and my food was good.  But it was nice enough to eat outside when we went.  Be careful about parking.  At the public lot where I parked, unless you downloaded some local parking app, you needed a bunch of quarters for the parking meter which seemed very old fashioned.

Fabulous. At the Mariner’s Harbor now for lunch. Met with a realtor earlier about a vacation property.

Looks like fun and glad you had nice weather for the cruise.

It was perfect. Except for the Karen who was screeching at us in line for not being 8 feet away. Once we boarded she was on a different deck, so we didn’t have to beat her up.

Tomorrow should be another good weather day.  Do you have anything special planned?

Going to Hyde Park and Rhinebeck. No specific plans, but exploring grounds of mansions. If we can find one with the buildings open, we’ll visit that, too.

When i worked for the US Forest Service we had a research plot that to get to, we had to walk across the open fields where Woodstock was held. Jusy hay fields then but was still pretty cool.

We made it back home today!  A really good trip overall. Today’s stops were Chequaga Falls near Watkins Glen, and The Windmill Farm and craft market. 4 Amish type girls by the lemonade stand.
