    Valentine's Day Tomorrow (Thursday)

    Bought some flavored popcorn on the way home last night for the wife and daughter. More than I usually do. We have really dialed it back over the years.

    Central NY shooting ranges/club?

    I am a member of the Camillus Sportsman Club. I believe we have a 200 yard range. Never shot out that far so I am not 100% sure. It’s a nice club with the shotgun and rifle ranges, an archery range, an indoor pistol range (open 24/7) and trap and skeet ranges. If you want to check it out, you can come along as my guest.

    I Love Pitch, but it’s more fun when you play according to Hunt Club rules - lots of Jim Beam shots every round. Classic. You bring the cards, I’ll bring the Beam.

    First Shot Daily Pics

    Generous. Can’t this classy Academy afford paper targets?

    Post Season Trail Cam Pics

    Got at least one buck still around. Few pictures of a red fox too and one coyote.
  6. I don't recall any official exhibits or sights, lots of statues though. Every time our family took us around, they would explain what we were seeing at to when it was built or destroyed....before the war, or after the war, or by the time of Etna eruptions.
  7. DON'T Drive to Cinque terre, take the train there, then the boats from town to town. Or hike between them (pay the trail fee)
  8. Nice pics Chef and Storm, when I went with my wife the first time we visited almost every church in every town. After 2 weeks she said if you take me into one more church I’m going to kill myself. (Joking of course). They do seem to blend all together. My father’s two best friends growing up in Sicily were both priests - one at the Vatican, another in Scicca on the southern Sicilian coast. So on that trip, we saw a lot of churches. Good advice to slow down, eat, drink, and enjoy the culture. Take siesta. Eat dinner late late late. After a week of that schedule, you will understand what La Dolce Vita means. Goose - Pisano - my great grandparents were from near Palermo. My father’s side is from near Catania, high up on Mt. Etna. Now I want to go back!
  9. Don’t be afraid to rent a car or drive there. It is not too much different than a busier city here in the US, maybe they drive a little faster. I drove a small bus (15 passenger) there on two different trips and it was fine. It helps to have a good navigator there because the signage is not as prevalent as here, and it’s in Italian! If you don’t know how to drive a stick, be sure to rent an automatic. Trains are great, but you still have to make your way from train station to hotel then to the sights. Very helpful to have a car at your disposal. I hope you don’t plan to visit all those cities on one trip! (Unless you are staying for a year). You could easily spend a week in Rome and only scratch the surface. Better to linger in one spot and see it all rather than bounce around from one spot to the next. My family is from Sicily, so I have a special appreciation for its’ beauty and culture. Depending on time of year, I would hope you can spend some time there. Much cheaper than the main tourist areas of Italy as well

    Oneida lake fishing/house rental Maybe he means this place? It is a nice shop, although pretty small. Rob is a good guy and supports the local angling community. I do remember Fredons right near that exit too. That was a cool store.

    Southeast/ region 3 meet up

    Google map says 134 miles one way from my office to the Goat - but I think I expensed the miles at 165 for the client meeting. ;-)

    We play a lot of pinochle and crazy 8’s at camp. At hunting camp it is strictly pitch. Have not played euchre, but my friends from Webster do and they look like they have fun.
  15. Thanks All, I made my wife take that picture. She usually is not interested in dead deer until it is ready to eat!
