So much for thinking there is never anything to do in the winter with Classic Boats. As you know, we set off to Clayton NY to pick up Suzy’s top, that then turned into another 3 hour drive to Reedville from DC. But that was just part of what was going on all over the country.I will try and summarize.
Well, they did say that no one is there in the winter.. Also EVERYTHING is CLOSED UP! Now they are having a very unusual winter. It was in the 30’s there, so we spent an hr of quality time driving around and breaking into buildings, general pillaging. Here are some fun images from Clayton.
Then we went off to Antique Boat America.. Shhh don’t tell anyone.. No one was home there either..
Thats it for Clayton, we left in a hurry, leaving Clayton as lonely as when we got there.
