A question about places to see + stuff to do in upstate NY.

What would you recommend to do in upstate NY, anywhere within a three hour drive of Hunter, NY. Open to anything available during coronavirus, but specific interests include modern/contemporary art, socialism/anarchism/antifascism/leftism, government/civics, (vegetarian) food, animals, factory/food tours (learning about how anything is made), architecture, nature, urban/abandoned exploring.

How safe does private room/long distance train travel seem these days?

I'm not actually considering traveling any time soon. I've been on the cautious end of the spectrum since March. But I'm wondering if people are edging back into long-distance train travel (or perhaps if people have been doing it more than I imagine) and how safe or unsafe it seems to the hive mind.

What was it like at Betty Meyer's Bullwinkle Cafe?

I lived in Rochester, NY for a while. I always meant to visit Betty Meyer's Bullwinkle Cafe and didn't ever get there before they closed. What songs would have regularly been in rotation there? (I'm generally familiar with the concept of the Great American Songbook and that "standards" exist. I'm looking for specifics where possible.) Are there other establishments like this, a cross between a piano bar, a participatory experience, and a time machine?

How do I visit Ecuador with no return ticket?

I purchased a one-way ticket to Quito, Ecuador from LA for next week (I'm a U.S. citizen). Ecuador technically requires a return ticket (aka an "onward" ticket) to enter the country. But I am not ready to buy a return ticket yet (I don't know when I will need to return home). Is there any way to get around this requirement? [more inside]

I am the proud owner of a 2000 F150 work truck. I want a camper shell on it that I can remove myself (with mechanical assistance if needed) fairly easily. Has anyone used the folding convertible-top type covers? how hard is a bare-bones aluminum shell to remove? [more inside]

Kid-friendly beaches in Cape Cod

We will be on Cape Cod in Sandwich, MA with 3yo and 4yo kids for a low-key week of going to the beach and (cautious, socially distanced) exploring the cape. My understanding is that cape-side beaches are better for kids due to smaller waves and more tidal pools to explore. Any recommendations for specific beaches and/or other activities that are reasonably kid friendly and less likely to be super crowded? We will be there Monday-Friday so hopefully mid-week crowds will be more reasonable.

How to eke the last bit of life out of this car?

I have an ancient car with a clutch that's starting to get a little cranky. My mechanic basically said that I shouldn't even consider replacing the clutch, and at this point I should just drive it until it dies. How can I maximize the life of this clutch? Pertinent details inside. [more inside]

Safe to ride Bay Area Rapid Transit in the Covid-era?

I have a dentist appointment in SF (near our mostly-shuttered office) coming up, and I'll have to come in from the East Bay where I've been working from home. I'm hoping not to deal with $$ garages (which could be full anyway) or 1-hour street parking, so I was just wondering if it'd be relatively safe (i.e. not a Covid hot-zone) to ride BART at the moment. (The office is on Sansome a few blocks from Market, if that helps).
