It is customary for first timers to pay for all returnees.

It sounds like the soft-shell lobs are fairly cheap this year too. This could be epic

Anyway, I'm in Let me know how I can help


However I DO expect the silk napkins and a $100 a plate don't forget the caviar either, oh and Grey Poupon

If it's lobster or crab cakes, I'll switch from veggie to that

Lobster in VT has to be safer than a fresh shrimp in a diner off rte 66

Hi Flute,

Save some for me. I'll be right over.
Never mind Mark. He has already had breakfast.
You coming to Cromag?

Mt Equinox - Skyline Drive



http://www.motorcycleroads.us/roads/vt_skyline.html

If you are approaching Cromag from the west by way of Bennington, VT
you may consider detouring from the Bennington Connector
via the Skyline Drive to the summit Mt Equinox.

Route from Bennington, VT - Mt Equinox - Barnard, VT:

http://goo.gl/maps/gujD

Note:

"Vermont's Skyline Drive is the longest (5 miles), privately owned, paved,
toll road ($12 for motorcycles) in the USA
.
The road is open from May 1st to Oct 31st.
It rises vertically some 3,300 feet to the top of Mount Equinox.
Along the way there are several picnic and parking areas in which to take
in panoramic views of the Green, Taconic, Adirondack, White and Berkshire
Mountains.

The toll road is paved with many nice curves and switchbacks along its route.


Descending in a low gear is advisable....



Web site:
http://www.equinoxmountain.com/index.php


It may be a bit messy at the top due to construction of a visitor center.

WOW!!!!!!!!

These pancakes are awesome! I used Shock Top Raspberry Wheat beer. Laconic had his with molasses on the side. I just had mine with butter.
I will have to pick up some pure Maple Syrup for next time, don't know if I can get the New York State type over here. I am also going to try some other flavored beers.

I can't believe we ate the full batch! I must'v had about 3, which is more than I usually eat.

thanks for sharing the recipe!

Hey George! No, doesn't look like Cromag is in the plans for ME...

Looks like an awesome ride! I will be there in spirit!

George, hi!

Pretty much most of it is like what's in the picture.

The upper end, which is actually descending gradually as you go north, has a thicker canopy. At the height of the land you'll find some fields on the west side of the road. But to answer your question, most of the road is like that.

If you continue on that route further north, from Lincoln to the App Gap, it opens up more initially. None the less, it's still a nice ride.

Does that help?



Liz
