I like to explore. By foot, car, or boat, I don’t really care. Planes are good too, but I prefer excursions that are spur of the moment and cost no more than a tank of gas. The best parts of exploring are the things you find along the way – a spectacular spot, an incredible meal, a refreshing beer, and sometimes rocks. More on the rocks later. I like to share what I find, hence the blog. Usually it will be about things to eat and drink in New York State & close environs (what’s better after a day of exploring the ‘great unknown’), but I can’t promise that. There’s a lot to see and do around here. And rocks, which are sometimes the cause for the expedition in the first place.
