Let's get some meet-ups going.

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • Welcome to all the new members. We now have 440 folks signed up for this group. That means somebody somewhere is ready to take a trip.

    Yankee Trails and Wade Tours have their new schedules out. I've taken a few Yankee Tours trips and have found them to be fun days. Well planned out with little stress. Great for those that have free time during the week.

    I've spoken to Yankee Trails and with 10 people we can get a 10% discount. I haven't spoken to Wade ?tours yet, but I suspect it will be close to the same.

    I suggest you look over the sites and see if there are any trips that interest you and suggest it as a meetup. I'll do the same.

    I just Googled Jimays Flea Market. It starts at 6a and is open until 3p. So even leaving at 6-7a is doable for me. I'm HOPING to go REGARDLESS if I have any riders! NOT much stops me! I don't want to get there too late as I hope to spend the day there!!!
    There is also the Country Living Fest in the Catskill Area on June 4-5. IF I have off I hope to go to that as well............I'm trying!

    If anyone is interested in going to the Jimay's Flea Market on May 15..........I'm HOPING to go! I have the day off from work! YEA!!! There's NO bus trips so I'm driving. I have a small H-Accent car so I can't fit many in it. But I don't mind some riders! I do live in Mayfield. So we would need to figure where to meet. Anyone interested I can forward my phone # or email? Or you forward me yours!!! It's EARLY in the morning........like it starts at 6a!!!! It takes about 1 1/2 hr. I think? to get there. It's in the Binghampton area. Google Jimay's Flea Market for more info.

    Any interested in the Cream Cheese Fest in Loweville NY?? It's $35 and is on Sept. 17. The trip is w/Browns Tours out of Amsterdam but does leave from Crossgates/Albany and also in Schenectady as well.......it's not that costly so I thought I'd ask. Check out Browns Tours/Amsterdam for more info..........

    There's a some neat flea markets, one in the Catskill area, Stormville Flea Market, if any is interested in that? I went once alone. And loved it! As far as I know there isn't any bus trips there. Would need to carpool. There's another, Jimay's in Binghamton as well.....again tho, NO bus trips. Carpool. There's also a County Living fest in June? that I went to last yr. and Loved that. Again, no bus; carpool. These are Some things this group may be interested in. IF you google what I just said, you can find more info on them. And we could go accordingly. Or what about the Big E in Springfield Mass. in Sept. ? or the NYS Fair in Aug.? Those may be something others may be interested in?? There's bus trips to those.......
    Just throwing out some thoughts...........

    I'm Unaware of someone being in charge of this??? I just joined about a week or so ago.........I live North of Amsterdam. IF I knew what to do, for being in charge??? I'd GLADLY help out! Anyone give me ideas about that??? And what to do? Where to meet, etc........

    Sometimes I have a hard time getting to Albany for a meeting. I live North of Amsterdam, Mayfield, and it takes me over an hr. to get to Albany. I would enjoy going on some trips w/others tho. I also work varied hours in a local retail store which makes it even more difficult to go to meetings.........but I'm willing to try, pending my work schedule and what time the meetings are? I Don't really like driving alone very far at night...........

    im willing to meet up if anyone is interested. im thinking day trips would be easier to start with. thanks Terry for the website info.

    I used to moderate this group and that's just how I got it. It had been abandoned. When I left I turned it over to a nice lady. I guess she left too. Shame, this could be a good group.

    Enjoy your trip. I did it on my own using the Road Scholar itinerary to get sugestions. I wouldn't count on this site. It must be defunct.

The summer months are a bit busy for me,but depending on the day, I may be available. I'll wait to see which day trips you decide on and the dates. Hopefully, I'll be able to make some events in the near future.

    Wade tours has a great tour to the Bronx Botanical garden for the Monet display. I was there for the summer exhibit and it was breath taking. The lily ponds were really something to see. The Garden will be changed for the fall display and it might be something the group would be ingterested. I know Idefinitely want to go back to see the fall exhibit. The trip is $66.00 with one stop each way.

    I regularly take these bus trips and they are a lot of fun. They have trips on the weekends which is when I go and I believe Wade will do a trip if there are 20 people signed up. That's how I discovered them after a charter trip to Mystic Seaport on a Meetup!
