Brooktondale to Oneonta: June 7 and 8

June 8, 2012

You’ve read of Tim’s trials while waiting for me to be ready to leave, so I will spare you further details.




I planned to give all sorts of other details of our trip—first to Afton (55 miles) and the next day to Oneonta (33 miles). I experimented with the iPhone camera.

Pictures of friends! We met Dan and Linda Finlay while having lunch in Whitney Point.

Experiments with my iPhone lenses:

Details of wonderful meals along the way. If you stop here for lunch, you can listen to a lesson in Italian while using the restroom.

But hours of pedaling, and relearning the blog program, and reviewing the editing program, and finding a new resizing program, and uploading methods have taken their toll.


We had two excellent days of riding:

Saturday promises rain (but not all the time). Our hope is to skip between the showers which means we once again make an effort to start early—breakfast at Denny’s in Oneonta and off before the showers begin. I’ll let you know how we make out.

Thanks to all for your kind words and encouragement!

    We are really enjoying the photos and words and hope the rains won’t be too discouraging! It’s great to be able to travel along side you both — in spirit anyway.

      It’s great to have you with us! Keeps me thinking about possible comments as I ride along. One of these days I’ll get out my miniature notebook and write a few of them down. Then I’ll know what they were at the end of the day.

    I suppose the rain is better than heat. But I always worry about your safety. Whatever you do, be safe! Good luck and enjoy the rest on Sunday!

      We’ve just finished breakfast and are enjoying the rest already. Watching the golfers walk around and thinking about our next nap. Thanks for the good thoughts. Suzy

      Thanks Sandy. 99.9% of the cars are courteous and polite. One yesterday had to pass us on the bridge coming into Prattsville. He didn’t come close to us, but almost drove an oncoming car off the road. Who knows how much time he would have wasted if he waited till the other side of the bridge.
