1 Gets a New Logo!

After a year’s hiatus while we gutted and renovated our 1855 home in Upstate New York, the Mecomber team is back on the trail! My itinerary is a bit scattered this season, but it’ll be fun. I’m going to focus on a few places that have been getting media attention lately– places that may not be open to the public for much longer due to New York State budget cuts. I’m concerned that these place will close before I have had the chance to see them and write about them. One place in particular is the Nicholas Herkimer Home in Little Falls, NY.

We also intend on going camping for a bit in the Adirondacks (going to need plenty of bug spray for that). And we’ll be taking a few adventures out of state, too. We visited my brother in Virginia a few weeks ago– what a wonderful trip! I also visited Hill Cumorah and the old Joseph Smith homestead in February (I’ll have stories about that posted very soon). I’ll be going to Indianapolis this summer, and we do plan another trip to Virginia sometime. Not to mention all the amazing things we’re going to do in New York, like (hopefully) see a Civil War enactment in Peterboro and get to Saratoga to see Freeman’s Farm and Fort Ticonderoga. Of course, if any of you have suggestions, feel free to leave a comment. 🙂

In celebration of all this new activity, I’ve developed a “brand” for the blog, replete with t-shirts and car magnets! What do you think?


I’m planning on updating the blog theme, too, to reflect the new logo. This may take a little time, but I’m hoping that with the onset of a new year, New York Traveler will have a new look!

About the Author

I've been traveling throughout New York State since I got the travel bug after touring the Herkimer Home on a school field trip as a youngster. We've been blogging about our travels since 2006 and have visited over half of New York's 62 counties so far.
