The Cooperstown adventure has started. We’re settled in at our VRBO, a little guesthouse at a farm in Cobleskill, about 20 miles from Cooperstown. It was a beautiful drive up, despite the occasional mist and fog, as leaves were near or at peak all through PA and NY. Our guest house is nestled in a valley, with beautiful views of mountains everywhere we look. The farm is about 10 miles off the interstate. On the backroads coming here we saw two different flocks of wild turkeys and some deer. The foliage everywhere is incredible. It’s a good year for fall color.

We have 9am timed tix for the HOF tomorrow, so tonight we’ll probably have a couple of adult beverages and some dinner, and unwind from the drive. With stops to hit the bathroom and walk the dog, it was about a 6 hour drive. Tomorrow should be sunny and perfect. 

BTW, the NY Welcome Center on I-81 as you enter from PA is about the nicest I’ve ever seen. They have a snack and sandwich shop, a lovely glassed in eating area, electric car chargers, a fenced in dog park, and even a good size motorcycle shelter. It’s located on a hill with a mountain view. They have a giant “I ❤️ New York” sculpture on the overlook, just begging for people to take pix in front of, and of course everyone was doing just that.
