Shindagin Hollow State Forest (Tompkins #3) covers 5,266 acres of land in the towns of Caroline in southern Tompkins County and Candor in northern Tioga County. Its large size and good access from public roads make this a great forest to enjoy activities such as mountain biking, hunting, hiking, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, bird watching, nature viewing, picnicking and camping.

Assholes Of The Road.

I usually avoid driving NY 206 and NY 79 to Ithaca, because the road is full of tailgaters and idiots who don't know how to drive. Notice the speed in the video -- I'm hardly a slow poke on a twisty, steep road with a 55 MPH speed limit. Drivers in the greater Ithaca area always seem to be in a rush to get to the latest traffic jam downtown.
