Upper Hudson: Monday 10-8-07
From Newburgh North to Catskill (Mike's Riverview Marine Sea-Doo) or Troy and back (either 100 or 200 mile round trip depending on how frisky the riders are feeling!). Newburgh ramp departure @ around 9:00 am.

do you guys go through the lock in rensselaer/troy? or do you come from the other way?
10-06-2007, 01:51 PM #3
nope... head north to the locks and turn around there and head back south

then 10 mins later you're at the lock..?
sorry, i don't have my navigational skills down yet..

Coming from the South, there is a park in Albany that we pass (which would be on the left or west side of the river) that's about 10 miles south from Troy. I think it's called Erastus Corning Riverfront Park. I think he was a Mayor of Albany once or something- but I guess you would know better than me.
We have not gone through a lock... yet!
You interested in going JFizz?

Lowtide1; have you been able to wriggle out of work? Al is in... I'm sure he told you!

I've been told that if you go through the first lock (Troy) the Mohawk river is a beautiful ride...

i'll be testing my new shorty waterbox on monday..the only problem is im already only 10 miles away from your 'endpoint' so it wouldn't be worth much.. if you guys want to try to go past troy for once, i'm in! just let me know in advance so i can fill up my gas tank. also, what time do you think you'll be near albany? i have monday off so it doesn't matter either way, but i'm trying to get an idea of when to go out..

J: Don't even know if we're going up that far yet... may only go to Catskill. We play it by ear after seeing what the conditions are and how the riders feel about doing a 200 mile round trip.

alright, that's cool. my ski is in pieces waiting for the ups guy to bring my shorty waterbox. i don't think i can make it out in time today to see you guys no matter where you end up riding to..
