: I'm contemplating a trip to upstate NY, into Natty-Bumpo land or Cooper-land, maybe even as far as the Forts, to see glorious Fall Foliage and have some nice walks/hikes. Maybe at the beginning of October, for a two- or three-day weekend. My cat Jake has declined to accompany me, and there's simply no point in my even asking my cat Samantha. Anyone interested in joining me? Requirements: must be able to talk LOTM ad nauseum (and other things, of course, but no one I know wants to explore LOTM as I do, which is why I want to go up there), and must enjoy walking and must enjoy the splendors of Fall Foliage in Upstate NY. I figure it's all about 3-4 hours from my home.
: I suppose this is a wildly dangerous thing to suggest over the web, but I'll figure out some way to get around that. Vita can vouch for me, as long as people can vouch for anyone who wants to come with me.
You're tearing my heart out. This is something I have been wanting so badly to do that I can taste it. Being a native of Upstate NY, as well as loving the works of Cooper, it has always meant a great deal to me to walk the ground where all that history actually occured, and the beauty of it all in Autumn is even more if an irresistible temptation. E-mail me, and we'll talk. firstname.lastname@example.org.
