Bright and early Sunday morning we pulled out of the park in York and headed north on I-83. Just north of Harrisburg we crossed the Susquehanna River and again turned north on US-15. Route 15 meanders along the Susquehanna for many miles then, north of Williamsport, PA winds up through the mountains. The trees are in full bloom providing some beautiful views of the nearby hills.
Soon after crossing into New York we took I-86 west a bit, then again turned north on I-390. At Exit 4 we stopped and were greeted by Dave and Sue (Buluga’s Adventure) where Captain David’s pilot service boarded our motorhome to guide us to our RV site 10 miles to the north along beautiful Conesus Lake.
Dave and Sue live on a beautiful piece of land just outside Geneseo, NY complete with a house built in 1824, a horse barn, and a metal barn large enough to park their motorhome in with room for another vehicle next to it! They also own a piece of property about two miles to the east on the western shore of Conesus Lake complete with room for an RV along a deck. They are presently busy preparing their house for sale and securing a contractor to build a small house on the lake property beginning in a few weeks so they had no plans to use the RV space. They graciously invited us to use the property for a visit as we make our way north to Pam’s mother in Clayton, NY. We had planned to stay here for a few days before moving on, but once we got a look at the site, we decided to stay for a few years! OK, maybe not that long (since a backhoe will be on site in the coming months to begin site preparation for the new house).
Once we arrived at the property, Dave guided John back into the driveway. Since the drive has a small turn in it, Captain David’s Pilot Service provided a valet (Whose name also happens to be Dave) to move the motorhome into perfect position along the deck.
Not a bad site, right! There is some good hiking and biking nearby and we plan to get out our inflatable kayak for some lake exploration soon. Also, Dave and Sue have promised to play tour guide for us as we explore the Rochester area. Wow, have we hit the jackpot or what ? ? ?
Looks like a busy visit to central NY! More on that later . . .
