    I tried the map, but couldn't bring it up. Probably my computer or lack of skills. Where is S. Deerfield? What part of the state? What is it near?

    Now yer gonna make me get out my Atlas ain't ya? Isn't there a town or city that I would recognize near there?

    Well, I guess not. It's one of those "You can't get there from here." sorts of places. And I see, that you meant I-90, where my poor eyes read 190. I had a heck of a time trying to find 191. Thanks.

    How long do you suppose it would take to drive to Albany, NY from S. Deerfield? It's about 4 hrs drive from where I live to Albany.

    For those out of staters, like me, South Deerfield is north of Northampton, MA and south of Greenfield,MA, more or less equidistant.

    I love New England. The original folks loved the name of where they were from so much that when they moved a little ways down the road they took the name w/ them. I am not surprised to see Deerfield, East Deerfield, West Deerfield and South Deerfield. But what, no North Deerfield or Deerfield Center?

    Shelburne Museum is not too far from there, by road, and is worth seeing too.

    Too bad I didn't plan on this earlier. I'm going to a Bluegrass Festival that is only 20 miles from here, if that far.

    Hey Mike,
    Wanna go hear some music? Take a day off for a change? Just kidding. You go skiing on your days off. That's what winters are for.

    Sorry deknow. We'll have to have bbq some other time some other where.
