      All the wind kinda bummed me out since a lot of the turned leaves were already blown down.

                  I'm lookin for pics! Considering I was still drunk till around 1pm from the wedding I was in NO condition to travel let alone thoroughly enjoy the exhibit.

                  Get any selfies with Blunt?

                    I'll be going up there later this week to check out the museum exhibits. Missed the meet up, though.

                    Also anyone in the Albany area know of any empty lots or deserted areas/roads I can practice autox at? I have the cones and the desire, but I don't know of any place I can safely practice.

                      How about you go to local SCCA events?

                      Find your region, and attend events.

                        Went to the last two events, but the season is over now :/

                        Also it's pretty hard for me to get better if I only do it like twice a month.

                          How many runs were you able to tun in your events? The last one I attended a few years ago only had us going 3 times in a sub 50 second course. It really was a blast but honestly being there all day you'd think there'd be more seat time.

                          Look for closed car dealerships, schools, empty retail spaces, and the like. I'm sure there has to be something like that around. This is upstate NY for god's sake! Don't expect a welcome reception by any police. The fact that you have cones set up might work in your favor as I can't see them calling that reckless driving!

                            Did 4 runs in the morning and 4 in the afternoon. First time I went I started at a 46 something and worked my way down to 38.6 and could still feel where I was losing time.

                            I'm a little out of my element here lol! In socal there was an abundance of purely industrial areas that would be deserted at night and no nosy neighbors to call the cops on me. Here everything is a bit spread out.

                            There's way more quiet windy roads to go for a nice spirited drive, but I just don't feel safe pushing the limits due to other cars/animals etc.

                            I'll try to see if there's any places like the ones you mentioned, though.

                              So how did you end up in Albany from SoCal anyway?

                                Going to school here at RPI. They gave me more money than UC San Diego did and I kinda wanted to get away from home and go to a smaller school.

                                I don't have many regrets which is nice: I genuinely like things up here, it's just annoying that you can't really drive nice cars year-round like we do in socal.
