Born on Rochester NY 1951

Rochester, NY 1951-1969
Saranac Lake, NY 1969-1971
Rochester, NY 1971-present

I'ld go back to Saranac Lake in a heartbeat but my bride will have nothing
to do with that. Of course it probably wouldn't be the same as I'm no longer
drinking like a fish and "Cruisin for Chicks" like in the "Old Days".

Yes. It wasn't the "golden period" for Sf, IMHO, but it was a "proto-yuppie, pre-dot-com" time that The City seemed to just be The City. I hope you liked living there as much as I did...

Still here.

Guess I need to broaden my horizons?
No you don't! Pacifica, to me, is a wonderful place. You are lucky! Besides, I would love to live in a town where you can walk on the beach in the fog, and where Bobbe Norris could be my neighbor and I could listen to her practice singing once in a while

I see MadMaxx and PaulH have had some CT history at some time, at least. Considering the few dozen posts here, that's pretty good! CT is pretty small!

1949-1980 - New Haven, CT - Hatching and first handful of missteps. Connecticut hill climbing! Ahhh, youth!
1980-1988 - Greater London (Finchley, Wimbledon, Muswell Hill, Mill Hill) - Learning to speak English (!) - and much great cycling, both in London environs and western europe. Best time of my life - so far!
1988-1998 - New Haven - Back (somewhat reluctantly) to hometown and further interesting times
1998-2000 - Lawrenceville, NJ - off for further interesting times - great cycling!
2001-2002 - Philadelphia - not a totally charming experience, but great cycling opportunities
2003-Present - New Haven CT - once more! Alas, diminishing opportunities to ride save for commuting - work work work work... sheesh! whatever happened to the four day work week?
