Utica, NY

Today we put almost 300 miles on the road and found the perfect place. We found the perfect place for David to write but also the perfect place to not eat, play or be. We landed in Utica, NY and found a nice old hotel called, appropriately the Hotel Utica. It is a grand place and the perfect place to write for David. Check out this picture of David writing in the hotel, or click on the name of the hotel above and visit their photo gallery. You can see why we decided to stop in Utica.








However, the rest of the town reminds us of Muskegon three years after the downtown mall moved out to Sternberg Road. It is like a ghosts town. We should have ridden 350 miles. Maybe tomorrow we will. But, David did make some progress on the book.

Tomorrow Niagara Falls, NY.
