Always wondered.  Is Upstate NY an geographical area or a state of mind?  I have NEVER heard anyone say they lived in Downstate NY.

Uh oh.  Just noticed upstate NY has UPS in it. That curse is everywhere.  :'(

   Us upstaters are constantly are constantly talking about the downstaters (i.e. flatlanders) who invade each summer. Nearly as much trouble as the Canadians.  ;)

Its both and rather complicated. There's a new house across the street from me that went for a high price comparatively to the neighborhood. I knew the new owners were from New Jersey.  If they drove up in a BMW SUV it would probably have been bad. They had a diesel pickup with a lot of tools in the back, good.

DKMC, I'm in Lk. George. There's another guy near Buffalo or Rochester too.

I’m in Orchard Park…just south of Buffalo…and I believe 6/1 in NY is in the Southern Tier. 
Upstate NY is a generic term referring to everything outside of The City…anything west of Syracuse however, does not exist because its uncivilized wilderness, Appalachian type depravity, frozen tundra etc…

True Story:  My daughter brought some college friends (from The City) home last Thanksgiving. One of the girls looked out and asked about all the “dead space” out there. Umm…  “dead space”?   Yes…all that open land out there with nothing on it… Umm that’s farmland.  What’s it used for?  Umm...growing crops…corn and oats.  Seems like wasted space…wouldn’t it be easier to go to a store and get that stuff?  Umm…never mind…

It didn’t take my daughter very long to figure out The City is New York City…and if you’re from Long Island …that’s the first thing you tell anyone in a conversation…

I going out to the front porch…got some banjo pickin’ to do...

Bill,
   You live in a nice part of the state up there.  I was up in your neck of the woods twice this summer, once to go to the indoor waterpark with the kids and another day we went up to the 6-flags.  Sure seems like the area outside those two venues is a lot more relaxed.  A big change from the Connecticut shore where I live.

We had a nice time up there and will be back.

Upstate NY is a frame of mind that comes to us in early spring after the 4 months of gray skies, not seeing the sun and random snow falls that are a result of living on the south western side of the great lake of Ontario.
I live in the Rochester area and have a 12/2 Metro gen set built over the last 2 yrs. Just got it put together and working in the shed and it was obvious that the space was MUCH too small. So I’m presently building an addition to provide a shop (man house) that I can tinker with it and tweak it to my satisfaction.
There are of corse a slue of other projects that are in progress that are calling to be done.

It’s always good to stop in to this site and check out what others are up to, It's an inspiration each time. 
 
Good to hear there are others out there in the Upstate area.

 Keep the bright lights on and remember don’t stare at the sun directly if it shows it self :o.

My "summer place" is so upstate in NY that I can walk to Canada (to escape).

People in the Center of the Universe think that upstate is 110th Street.

In no one's wildest dreams would they ever recognize that anything exists outside of "the city", so why would they even entertain the notion that they were "downstate", or "down" anything, even though they live in a sewer infested with vermin.

Apologies to any normal person who just happens to be stuck in the city.
Do not trust the "grid" folks!

Hi, I live in CNY between Syracuse and Binghamton and am working on a 6/1 Metro CHP system. I already have a couple of WVO vehicles and am planning on running my Listeroid on WVO also. Would be interested in sharing some ideas with locals and seeing what others have been working on.

Well hello southern cousin

There are a number of Lister owners in Ottawa, a short drive North, even a supplier of machines, JohnF, so you have a lot of experience close by

JimB Hi there, I saw your post and I’m interested in your bio fuel system. I have made it in small batches but not full scale. Drop me a note if you get a chance I’d like to know what your methods are.
