Sep 14, 2008 - Howe Caverns

Today the four of us decided to get up bright and early and take a tour of the Howe Caverns. A completely different type of tour today than of the Baseball Hall of Fame, but just as informational. We had a wonderful tour guide. She added a lot of history and her own humor. We were taken in an elevator underground. She told us it was equivelant of 16 floors. The typical temperature is 52 degrees, so you better have a jacket in hand. We were thinking the cool temps were okay with us because outside it was very hot and humid. We learned about...

Sep 13, 2008 - We're off to Cooperstown Hall of Fame

Today is a day we have looked forward to for a very long time. Both of us being very sports oriented knew we would love today. It's so hard to put into words what we got to see. The whole event was quite overwhelming. The history in the rooms was breath taking. We never realized how much trivia you could come up with in one place. We were told that it should take us about 3 hours to go through the whole museum, well guess what 5 1/2 hours later we were still at it. We got to see a locker with Edgar Martinez, a little of Ichiro and some Ken...

Sep 12, 2008 - Singing in the Rain

Today we are off to Cooperstown to meet up with our friends Jim and Sandi Molloy. Should I say Singing in the Rain, hardly, but we have learned why we enjoy pull throughs so much when we travel. We woke up to a very HEAVY rain. Marty had to change his jeans to shorts just so he could put away the electrical cord and hose. Nothing like standing in water up to you ankles. We drove most of the day in rain, which makes us rather uptight and testy. We ended up getting so close to Beaver Valley campground, but had to call Jim and Sandi to lead us...

Aug 19, 2008 - Beaver Creek, CO. to Cooperstown, NY

Hello everyone! We hope our absence from your email inboxes has not raised serious questions about whether or not we are still in the country. The answer is, we don't know for sure. We have been in and out of Canada a few times in four days and it has been hard to keep up with ourselves. We have had a grand time since August 19, covering 3000 miles, seeing parts of the country that are new to us, and thanking God daily that we are Americans -- free to travel at will and enjoy this beautiful, resource rich continent. With such wonderful...

Bachman Travels

Aug 10, 2008 - Cooperstown

Ahah we thought! A road trip! What a splendid way to spend a weekend! So 8 of us piled into a 7 seater car and off we headed for a 5 hour drive to the Home of Baseball, Cooperstown! The day began with an introduction to Jim Cardello, who coached the NAWBL in the last couple of years, and was also the coach that was instrumental in getting Fredy into Daniel Webster. Jim brought along his kids, Hayley and James, and his car. Unfortunately Jim has not yet learned to count as he thought there were only 7 of us ... and there was 8. It didn't...

Living the Dream

Jul 16, 2008 - Cooperstown, NY

Don't know what it is with those boys when you ask them to pose for a picture! I honestly didn't orderer them to stand there like that, guess they were eager to go inside :)! Wednesday we traveled from Boston to Cooperstown to Buffalo. It was a long day but we stopped for two hours to visit the Baseball HOF in Cooperstown. Cooperstown is located on Lake Otsego in Otsego County, NY. It's a very small town and obviously baseball is the main business in this town. If any of you like baseball even a little, you'd love this little town and the...

May 15, 2008 - NY, Cooperstown Baseball Hall of Fame

The day that I arrived to Cooperstown it was cold and raining and I found that they have no parking at all for RV's. Did find one place that wanted $10.00 to park and then The Hall of Fame was $16.50 for entrance so I took a pass on it all as I would have gotten very wet walking the 8 blocks. Most of the places open for the season on Memorial Day Weekend. I rode around about two hours and saw the town, very old and very small less then 3000 folks. Never was a baseball fan to start with. FROM COOPERSTOWN WEB SITE: History of the Village of...

Jan 10, 2008 - Day 3 - Cooperstown

Today started at 8AM in Lexington, KY headed for Canton and the Football Hall of Fame. Got to the Hall at 1:00 but saw a few interesting photos on the way, hope you like the "Bone" sign especially you Reggie. The plan was to leave HOF at about 3:00 and head for Erie, PA to make tomorrow's drive to Cooperstown manageable but after checking the forecast for Friday I decided to drive all the way to Cooperstown today which ended up being about 850 miles and a 15 hourday. Driving to Cooperstown was another adventure in small mountain town...

Oct 23, 2007 - Cooperstown

We went to Cooperstown and visited the Baseball Hall of Fame. I attached a picture of Babe Ruth's Locker and the bat he used to hit his last home run. I have been regretting visiting the Base Ball Hall Of Fame for the past week. While there, Minhee learned the words to "Take Me Out To the Ball Game" and has been singing that song non-stop since. I was also very excited to find out that Cooperstown is also the source of the Susquahana river. Maybe someday I'll canoe the entire river from Cooperstown to the Chesapeake Bay. Cooperstown is also...

Oct 13, 2007 - Cooperstown NY

We visited 3 museums today, Fenimore House (an elegant mansion with American folk art & James Fenimore Cooper's memorabilia), Farmers (miscellaneous rural heritage to life in the 1800's) and the Baseball Hall of Fame which I am sure is the most visited attraction in the area. This was an all day trip plus we has a very nice dinner at the famous Tunnicliff Inn, Est. 1802.

Oct 4, 2007 - Pizza Hut?

Beautiful!! This part of the country is incredible. So idyllic - pastoral - just wonderful. Woke to a weird sound - thought it was a bird at first. Eventually realized that it was a horse clopping down the road - pulling a small buggy - Amish on their way to town, maybe. We drove back in to Cooperstown and visited the Baseball Museum and Hall of Fame. Cooperstown is named after James Fenimore Cooper ("Last of the Mohicans" author). It's out in the middle of nowhere - and we're still trying to figure out how/why the baseball hall of fame was...

Oct 3, 2007 - My, oh my!

o.k. - for you non-Washingtonians, the title of this entry relates to the Mariners because...we're near Cooperstown New York - the Baseball Hall of Fame!! We're staying at a very quiet campsite about 27 miles away. Today was a driving day, and we think we'll stay here for 2 nights so we can explore the area - the museum, a brewery, a winery, antiques all over the place, fruit markets, apple cider...It's a beautiful area near the south end of the Adirondacks. It's warm and clear. I just checked the weather report for home - and I am sorry...
