Well,
I am gonna be leaving the warm, sunny, muggy Mississippi for Rochester, NY soon
I'll start work up there in a month, but will not move until I can sell the house.
Kinda excited.
I know JMVOTTO is up there. Anyone else ride on the Finger Lakes?

You're gonna need some new stuff! First on your list should be a snow blower!

We have a rep that lives up there and he and I talk about the lakes he boats on and they sound really nice! Colder than in MS, but as I have traveled through the area and taken a peek, they look beautiful. If you need me to take care of your LSV over the winters, just let me know! :)

CONGRATS B Webb! BTW - with same employer or new?

Got to love the natural glacier created lakes in new york, we have plenty of them in the fingers lakes as well as the great lakes with they isolated bays.

Thanks guys. Joe.. looking forward to meeting up with ya soon.
I will be in the market for a snow blower and ski's... happier about the skis than the blower! I have never owned a snow shovel or blower... but, I did see lot's of boats out on Canadaigua.. Neoprene will be used more than now.. and the dry suit for sure..

I'll miss April May Sept and Oct in Mississippi for sure..

Hate to hear your leaving the south. I hope we can meet up on Eagle Lake once before you leave God's Country for that yankee land. :D Best of luck to you up there, I know it will not be the same.

Good luck with your new adventure in life. I am headed to NW Montana this August , we usually go up every other year to see family and friends. Several trips ago we left there in August and had frost on the nose of the boat! You just never know what mother nature will dish out. We both grew up there and it is wonderful in the middle of summer and look forward to it every time. The season is short but the days are long. We waited one year to watch fireworks and it was 11pm before it was dark!! I forget how long the days are every time we go. Good Luck . Jim.
