Visiting Putnam Valley can be quite the culture shock if one is not ready. For many to visit, it means renting a car or taking the Metro North Railroad. The adventure is one of a kind, the farther you travel up the tracks the harder the mountains begin to hug you. You'll be smacked by the fresh air, the breeze, and the sound the wind creates as it whistles through loose sidings on homes. Many of the friends back home, have elected to stay. Many to continue their career and for others to begin them. All good people, all great mind.
On this particular trip, I set off to attend my close friends birthday BBQ. Fresh food, fresh beer, and apple moonshine. Always accept the apple moonshine, its only polite.
