New here--anyone UPstate NY?

Recommended Posts

We're moving to Plattsburgh, NY, from Philly this coming Monday. Anybody here around there?

 

This will be our first long drive in our new Forester, complete with two scotties.

I'm just north of Albany, in Troy NY. There's a board member out in Rochester, too... can't remember anyone else off the top of my head.

I live in Mineville, NY about an hour South of Plattsburgh.

I also went to college at Plattsburgh State.

It's a nice little city, with a unique blend of redneck and more liberal culture (P-burgh has a Republican Mayor, who also happens to be openly gay...go figure :rolleyes: )

So anyway, welcome, and good luck. I hope you end up liking it here. Lots of Subes, mostly newer ones (watch the rust, it's a killer up here).

oh, and BTW, The big Subie dealership/service specialist in P-Burgh is Bill McBride's but I've found their mechanical work to be less than stellar and always overpriced, and they tend to not stand behind their work. After I quit them, I got a brake job and some other work done at the Midas place near the mall and they seemed really decent...
