Cambridge, NY. Beautiful country, rolling tree covered hills and farms. Cambridge Hotel is the birth place of the first "Apple Pie Ala mode" and Grandma Moses lived here and painted her famous American Primitive Paintings. If you go to Zillow.com and put in 1241 King Rd. Cambridge NY you can see pictures of our house here. It's already all over the net so I don't mind posting it here.

I found Upstate to be very pretty. My husband use to have a cabin in Andes. We sold it some years back; was too hard to maintain with us being up here and then there was the good ole taxes lol. BTW, Welcome to you and your family!

Default Geo

It finally stopped raining long enough for me to get a picture of the Geo. Can't quite compete with the duct tape ladies but it's not completely packed yet and the trailer isn't attached. I hope I attached the pictures the right way

Good job of securing things. You should take along a couple of rolls of duct tape just in case.....

Default GEO and travel dates

Second generation

Second generation Also called Geo Prizm Production 1993–1997 Body style(s) 4-door sedan Engine(s) 1.6 L 4A-FE I4, 105 hp (78 kW)
1.8 L 7A-FE I4, 105–115 hp Transmission(s) 5-speed manual
3-speed automatic
4-speed automatic Wheelbase 97.0 in (2464 mm) Length 173.0 in (4394 mm) Width 66.3 in (1684 mm) Height 53.3 in (1354 mm) Related Toyota Corolla
Toyota Tercel
Toyota Celica
Toyota Paseo
Toyota RAV4
Holden Nova The Prizm's 1993 redesign gave it more room (resulting in an upgrade to United States Environmental Protection Agency‎ "compact" car status), a driver airbag, and a new 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine optional on LSi trim. With the larger engine came a rear stabilizer bar, wider tires, and an optional automatic transmission with four speeds instead of three. A second airbag became standard in 1994; leather seats were an option on the LSi between 1994–1997. In contrast with the Corolla, this generation Prizm lacked a front stabilizer bar in its suspension, resulting in somewhat twitchier (some say "sportier") handling.


I found this write up on line. Our baby is a 1996, we have had it two years and it has handled upstate NY winters well.
J leaves Tuesday morning, he's almost all set. He is getting very antsy to get on the road. We can't leave the car door open for a minute with out our lab (Colby) jumping into the car, he loves to ride. We will see if this is still the case by the time he makes Anchorage
I just booked my flight for July 27th! Cat (Spike) and I will be getting in at 1AM on the 28th if all goes well. Things are starting to wrap up here, looks like this is finally going to happen. Can't wait!

Default Tomorrow's the day

J is taking down our computer to take it to Alaska, so I will have to wait a few days to post the picture of the car and trailer fully loaded. He is leaving at 6 AM tomorrow. Send good thoughts for a safe trip. Alaska here he comes!
