My In-laws still live in Syracuse. We used to have to go there regularly when the kids were young. Driving up for Christmas was a bitch during snow storms, particularly on 81N past Binghamton. We only go there now when the weather is decent, unless we have to take care of something that comes up.

Blizzard of 96 is why I left NYC. There were snow banks 6-7 feet tall. They had to carve single person pathways at intersections for pedestrians. And being the city the snow was all brown and disgusting. I am sure you remember. Scared me off for good. I will eventually get a place there, but only for short visits lol.

In regards to jamesbolt's assesment of demographics I happen to be an impressively fit, non tatooed, highly educated and financially secure 36 year old male with a wife and 3 rugrats at home.
I love your assessment of yourself lol.

I am a tatted up reformed multiple felon who is rather intelligent and edumacated - graduated top 3% of my class and looking to make more bread. The fitness thing i must get back into but i can drink with the best of them lol.
Anyways, the corvette is an awesome machine. Bj just doesnt appreciate cars. Hes also the guy who is probably driving piss slow causing traffic. I see corvette drivers on the track from that young asian dude wanting american muscle and that old dude whos always wanted a corvette. At least they are trying and having fun. Thats all that counts.

You obviously have a great relationship with your car by wanting to keep it as long as you can. People who lease cars never get the opportunity to really appreciate the cars they drive because they are in and out of them so often.
