Day Two - Ithica, New York to S. Albug, Vermont (335 miles)

St.Rt. 13 took us to I-81 at Cortland. We rode I-81 north until exiting at Pulaski. Another Rider magazine article I found talked about riding around Lake Ontario on St. Rt. 3 & St. Rt. 12 also known as the Seaway Trail. Once again, Rider was right on. The St. Rts. along the Lake and into the Thousand Islands region were fabulous. The roads were in great shape, and there were plenty of sights. We stopped in Alexandria Bay for lunch; this was a neat little town that was in the middle of their annual vintage boat days. We continued on St. Rt. 12 until it turned into St.Rt. 37. After Messena, NY we bid farewell to the St. Lawrence Seaway for awhile, jumped onto U.S. 11 and rocketed toward Lake Champlain. We targeted east side of the lake on what is known as the Grand Isle, in Vermont as our place to camp for the night. We were now running south on U.S. 2 when we spotted what looked like a good seafood place. Shortly after, we came upon a campground where we stopped to inquire about the accommodations. Ten bucks got us a camp spot right on the lake, it was beautiful. Once we visited that seafood place, we ready for some adult beverages, and a good game of horseshoes. I won the horseshoes. After dark, we watched the bingo games (whoa!), and talked to some older ladies from New Hampshire who had been camping at this spot for many years. That night it rained cats, and dogs. Fortunately the beers helped me sleep, but Steve got a bit wet.
