Mike Millow from Upstate New York here. Posting this to both introduce my family as I haven't done that yet on this forum, and to put out an invitation.
We are Cyndi (wife, mom, breadwinner, etc), Me (husband, dad, sherpa, homemaker), Michael (6/05) and Paul (11/03). We moved recently and are now living in a beautiful lake home in the middle of the Finger Lakes and Wine Country region of Upstate New York on the eastern shore of Seneca Lake. We're midway between Rochester, Syracuse and Ithaca NY for those who like to look at maps.
We have found ourselves in a wonderful home with a bunch of extra space and want you to feel welcome to come visit. The Finger Lakes, the wineries, the amish communities, the birthplace of the Mormon faith and Memorial Day and the Suffragette movement, numerous Indigenous sites and activities and history, scads of American history sites going back to the 1700's and up through WWII and Korea, both the Great Lakes and Finger Lakes along with several rivers and the Erie Canal system, bird sanctuaries, fishing, boating, camping, drop-dead beautiful scenery, a locally owned scenic railroad, birthplace of the floatplane and much, much more are within a couple hours of us - much of it within an hour or so.
We would enjoy sharing our home and the area with you. Send a message if you are going to be passing through and want to stop for a day or a night or longer. We'll see if we can work something out.
