H1, H2, & Big Boy Life on the (L)edge

Begun in the aftermath of Katrina, this blog was a way to keep family and friends updated as the family struggled to return to a semblance of normalcy. Now, more than four years later, the memories are still strong, the family is, to some extent, scattered. However, life did go on, and this is our story.

TRUCKIN' !!! - YEAH, BAY-BEE!!

In spite of all appearances to the contrary, I have not given up on this blog!!  I just can't seem to get the creative juices flowing as often as I used to.

Linda and I are heading to New York State on Friday and we're taking our granddaughters with us!  Driving!!  Yes, we might be out of our minds!!  One half of the trip will be in the Binghamton area, the other half will be on Long Island.  It will be great to see family and friends again, and an opportunity to show the girls some of the beauty that is NY.

For the Binghamton leg of the journey we plan to do the Binghamton Ride The Carousel Circuit.  And, if all goes as planned, we will also tour a coal mine and go to Niagara Falls.  A whirlwind visit, but a lot of fun packed into a few days, I think.

Then it's on to Long Island.  I had hoped to go to Sagamore Hill, the home of Theodore Roosevelt, but apparently the main house is closed to tours while under renovations.  Still, NY being what it is, there are lots of things to do.  Other possibilities are the Old Bethpage Restoration Village, the Statue of Liberty, and Jones Beach. Once again, whirlwind, but lots of fun!

We planned to drive there and back in our 2006 Ford 500.  After considering the size of the car, the luggage, and the almost 130K miles already on the car we went out tonight and bought a 2012 Ford F150 crewcab pickup truck.  It should make the trip a whole lot more enjoyable!!  We'll pick it up tomorrow (Thursday) morning, in plenty of time to pack up and hit the road on Friday!!

Hoping for a safe and happy trip.  Stay tuned, maybe after the road trip I'll actually have some interesting things to write about! Who knows?!?!
