Oneonta to Stamford – 25 Miles

May 28, 2011

Rested and refreshed, we are ready to leave by 8:45am. Trike is dry with no flats to greet us in the morning.

Backing with the trailer isn’t easy, but Tim has had lots of practice.

I spend most of the day simply enjoying the ride. There are no huge hills – either up or down. Plenty of time to look for roadside attractions.

Exit what? Your current house? Your old neighborhood? Your city? I’m still pondering this name.

The car in the air is the sign for the business: Fisher’s Auto Exchange Quality Used Cars. The car on the right is in the same yard. Maybe it was exchanged for a car iin better shape.

Never skip an opportunity to help a fellow photographer.

Today, Saturday May 28, is a major day for lawn and garage sales – all along this section of Route 23.

I enjoy looking at houses. . .

and barns in all states of repair.

This sign reminds us of the trip when we had eight flat tires along this road. But the garlic stand isn’t there and thankfully, we have only had one flat tire so far. The eight flats were caused by spokes coming up through the rim. Our son Christopher saved the day with his recommendation that we line the rims with electrical tape, which we did later that day. No more flat tires.

Old trucks parked beside the road, new cars passing by on the road. . .

Signs and establishments to ponder.

We are staying at the Stamford Gables Inn, a wonderful place to stay!
