The quarries around Lake Joseph, New York, provided the stone for sidewalks in the early days of New York City. That business faded with the invention of concrete, but there still remains a connection between the city and the area today, with a passel of second homes, like this boathouse. What is that they say about location again?

Cheryl and I were successful in our sneak attack visiting my parents in NY…I should have recorded when we walked in because my father, who never really curses, said “HOLY SHIT”. I was just too excited to stop and get the camera out!
We totally were able to keep this a surprise. Because we went on a 2 month motorcycle trip this summer we thought we could not make it to NY this year. However, since I got a new job I was able to take 3 weeks in between jobs hence the surprise trip. We are also here for my mother’s 75th birthday.
How often can you ever sneak across the countries, Canada and the US and walk right into the house when you knew your parents would be home having coffee etc…and scare the crap at of the hem in a good way? Once in a lifetime, like our trip this summer.
Here is a short video of our business class ride in!
Flew in over night to my parents for a surprise visit as a post Christmas present and for my mother’s 75th birthday. They were both very surprised and my father even cursed when we walked in! Here until Jan. 5th! Awesome that we pulled this off. Have to LOVE frequent flyer mileage!
