Just found THIS forum... Any other NYSSO people here? If so, what did think of this year's test? Either we are really well prepared, or they really dumbed it down this year [70 T/F's???].Still have a lot of problems with some of Mr Miner's interps/mechanics..oh well....

HEARTY HI HO, WELCOME
to the board and hope you'll become a regular contributor.

Ben,

Did they move Binghamton to the other end of I-81, or is there one other than just north of the NY/PA border?

Ben,

I was referring to the "upstate" New York notation. I really wouldn't consider anything below I-90 as upstate :-)

upstate

Well we consider it upstate NY.. just because.. my parents were from Long Island.. so in reference to there.. it is upstate..

Yeah, that's what I was figuring, after all, any part of the state not in the NYC metropolis is "upstate".

However, when you drive to Massena, NY from Delaware every other weekend for a year and some, Binghamton just doesn't seem that far away :-)

Just follow I-81 north to Alexandria (?) and turn right on NY 37 and follow the St Lawrence to where NY, Ontario & Quebec meet and you just passed through Massena, NY

It all sounds like a walk in the park. Try driving from
Beaumont, Tx. to El Paso, Tx. Now thats a drive.
