Thank you all for your replies. The "12 things I wish I knew" was very helpful and I'll definitely call first.
Thanks also for the welcome, Vicki. The kind of parish is Synodal Orthodox. The two closest ones are St Nicholas in Binghamton, NY at 1 hour away and Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville, NY at 1 1/2 hours away. The distance isn't the only reason I've waited so long, I also don't speak Russian. These are the only two choices because I was baptized at birth, by tradition more than religion, and the priest (bishop) is an Old Believer but part of the Synodal Church. The nearest Old Believers church is I think five hours away. I did take part in my nephews baptism and caught the tail end of the service, needless to say, I've been wanting to go back. Oh, yeah, one more thing, I've never been to church really, always been a Christian though.
