No we did not have an accident, no Dale is not hurt. Dale decided to lay down, after wandering the hills above Herkimer Diamond Mines. Our route, after winding us through hills so far off the beaten track, that we saw one car, led us to a closed private street at which point we gave up and called Dave. Dave had to follow our route sheet to find us since Google couldnt navigate to where we were.Photo: Day 50 Oneida Shores to HerkimerPhoto: Day 50 Oneida Shores to Herkimer

We had dinner across the street from the Herkimer Diamond Mines KOA at the Crystal Chandelier Pub and Grille.  

The owner of the Diamond Mines, and his son the owner of the Crystal Chandelier, were having dinner at the restaurant. They came over to congratulate us on  what we are doing.
