Dave the best place to launch is at the newburg ramp at Gullies . It's a free ramp with parking. Its 10 minutes from the I 87 off exit 17 or maybe 18........ its late and I cant think straight, if you need direction please tell me. its east to find. This is also the area where most of us hang out and where we will probably end up after the run to get lunch and hope to see some cool plains in the air. Lets just hope for some great weather. we need it .
