This site is new as of Wednesday, February 25, 2015. I cloned it off my NY Route 30 site, which had most of the same towns, so yeah, it has that cloned look to it. But give me some time and this baby will be unique and great and be the ultimate guide Route 3 all the way through the Adirondacks from Lake Champlain to Lake Ontario

Happy Thanksgiving 2017. Don't let the haters & the cynics ruin the party for you. But Watch Out for Winter Weather!
Hot Tips Computer - Web:  Leverage all the social media sites you can to support your main website. FaceBook is the most important followed by Twitter. But keep the focus on your main site and don't get bogged down in endless social media chit chat, which might be fun but it doesn't generate good traffic.
Auto:   Winterize your car! Snow tires, good thermostat, coolant freeze protected to -40 °, good battery & alternator.
Outdoors:   Winter is Here, Prepare for Cold Weather, Use Snow Shoes for any Hiking Now
