The continuing tour of places near home is taking a new direction this week by heading to Leatherstocking Territory in New York State. I have never been to Cooperstown before so now is the time. Cooperstown is home to the Baseball Hall of Fame as well as the Farmers Museum. How I avoided traveling the 72 miles from my home to get there amazes my friends. I frequently got comments like, “you fly all the freaking way to Indonesia and have never been to Cooperstown” over dinner with friends last night. I was assured that it is beautiful and there is much to do. In any case the trip there is easy and I will be back road driving that I love.
