If it was just a bit closer, I'd love to visit. We used to have a cottage on one of the Finger Lakes, and I'm a INY person.

Bill G the drive might be much but we do get folks who come from PA, NJ, New England and distant points of NY.
Interstate 81, 17(86) and 88 intersect in Binghamton which makes
for simple navigation.

I'll always call it 17 also. The name change to 86 never stuck with me. I drove 17 to Canandaigua many times. Nice country.
