I will be up at my mom's place in Cortland County that weekend.

I'm thinking of leading a small rally from CNY via Rt 20 to the Mohawk Valley, Rt 28 N, then Picking up the Thruway in Herkimer for the rest of the trip in.

Good meet up spot would be the McDonalds on Rt81/Rt20 in LaFayette. We used this meetup years ago for the Carlisle convoy. Maybe 8am.

We could then shoot the mountains heading into Madison County, and pass thru Cazenovia, Nelson, Morrisville, Bouckville, Madison, German Flats, then take a twistie into Ilion to pick up the thruway, maybe a stopover to see Bill at SAABCARe and get some coffees or Caffine laced beer drinks or whatever.

Beautiful peak and near peak fall foliage continues its 2010 tour across New York State this weekend, with stops in the Finger Lakes, Capital-Saratoga, Hudson Valley, Thousand Islands-Seaway, Chautauqua-Allegheny, Central New York and southern and eastern Adirondacks regions, according to observers for Empire State Development's I LOVE NEW YORK program.

if my plans of towing back a car fall through maybe i'll make the extra journey. I'm envious of the fun that will occur none the less.

Make sure you hit the Illion gorge.. Good fun through there providing there are no leaves in the road.

This sounds like it has potential for total failure - yet complete insanity. Where you say you going to be Friday night? lol Tempted - we'll see how my Friday goes anyways. (I am now Tweek friendly BTW at my house - recently bought a full sized glass beer pitcher and 6 pint glasses - as I know you like to drink from the pitcher) I figure I'm prolly rolling up to Walden Friday night to crash at Paul's Parents if that is their plan, otherwise it'll be a super Saturday AM drive from PA...

Yep got that covered. I would love to hit other roads, but we aren't going to have the time.
