Hi and welcome to the Emerald Leaves of Change - Fall 2016 team. I am one of your co-leaders and am looking forward to working together to make this a great challenge. If I can be of any help, please let me know. One step, one day at a time...we can do it!
Made it up to the office, and am using their WiFi! She says Verizon works here but not AT&T.....oh well! Looking forward to seeing the town of Cooperstown tomorrow, and the Hall of Fame. It took us a LONG time to get down 87 once we hit Saratoga, traffic was all clogged up. The whole problem is, right at Albany where 87 toll road goes south, and the thruway goes EAST and WEST, all traffic has to go in one lane to be directed to the routes. That is poor planning and cars rush ahead and then, at the very last second, cut in, which slows everyone else down who has been in that lane since the beginning.
That really irks me, that some people think it is OK for them to cut into line, and make others wait. Really, the traffic headed south and east should be in separate lanes than traffic headed west. But, the way they have it now, they only need one line of toll booths, so guess that is why they do it. May be better, if you ever come south, to split off the Northway and take 9 at some point, and then, get on the toll roads if you need to. 27 days ago
