[QUOTE=frank_a;495743]So Ev, where in upstate did you grow up? I grew up in Massena, about as far north in NY as you could get.
We lived in Whitesboro, a suburb of Utica (although I don't think the word "suburb" had been invented yet!). My brother's been living in St. Johnsville for about 40 yrs.; it's between Utica & Schenectady, population about 1,500. He gets a lot of use out of his Casita
; his adult kids & grandchildren do, too. Lucky you, there's so much beautiful country to explore in your area!
Good luck with your current project; seems like we never run out of things to fix or modify.
