Hi all

As far as distance is concerned, Hamilton was the first drivable one for me since Boston.  Indiana and Ohio would be within driving distance although much farther.   I flew to Texas and Seattle but had to pass on Australia.

As for the possibility for a  New York site, I'm looking at Saratoga Springs, not NYC.  It is 4 hours from Boston and NYC, just a bit farther from Toronto and Montreal and less than an hour from Albany airport.  I have no doubt of Barony approval, and have others willing to help.  The area is beautiful and there is a college in town as well as the national dance museum which we are looking at using somehow.
