Quote:BTW, if your GPS routes you onto Spook Rock Road, decline the invitation. Get off the NYTW (I-87) at exit 148. Stay in the center lane (the right disappears just north of the interchange). Airmont Road becomes Highview after the curve. Stay on it to the traffic light at College Road.
I also recommend picking up I-80 to I-287, avoiding NYTW tolls if you were to come in from the north. Exit 148 (Airmont Rd) is the 1st exit after the merge with I-87.

Quote:As we all know...Boston MA is the center of the known universe (followed by Silicon Valley...although I'm told the country is slightly tilted so all the lose screws roll west)...so...I was wondering how many Bostonians make the trek to Suffern, NY...I think we're a fairly large group so wondered if others from our proud state could check in so I can get an idea how large we truly are...BTW this mis my 4th NEAF and get so excited I get that kid in the candy store feeling...there are NO telescope stores in Massachusetts (at least that I'm aware).
