Well, it looks like I will have to bow out this weekend due to commitments with work (self-employed). I was only going to do the VT sections but was looking forward to meeting up & seeing more local (for me) terrain.

Going to try to still get up to Canuman's the following weekend.

Have a fun & safe trip!

PS it's been cooling off here quite a bit lately, so be prepared. Lit a fire in the woodstove this past Sunday AM!

Wx update...

Here in St Pete FL it's raining cats, dogs, mice, gators, spiders and molested ducks!

I'm told this is hitting the whole eastern part of the US.

It's gonna be muddy out there.

I am flexible with the ride days. While I am not interested in CroMag, I can easily start a day or two later. So far the wx looks like crap on Sunday and Monday. We'll have a better look at it as we get closer. I have two days of chores to do. I was planning on being done with the ride Friday night thus allowing Sat and Sun for them. If you want to Cro Mag it and then go on the ride Monday, I'll just do the chores this weekend instead of next. Atlas?

Hey thanks for being flexible Rich. It's not definite and perhaps it's a bit much considering there is 5-7 days of riding afterwards! Cromag is only an hour south of the summit so we could still leave Sunday so that would give us 6 days still. I've been at the gym like crazy for the last month to build some endurance, but that still doesn't make up for the prior 4 years of sedentary desk jockeying

I'll give Anton a buzz later and let you know.

As for the weather I see it has gotten even colder, mid 30's lastnight in Sutton. Saturday looks ok now but you are right, sun-mon we will be rained on.

Just came in from the woods loop I walk the dog on every AM. Pretty brisk! A balmy 35, I think.

So be prepared, though I DO think this was our cold dip for a few days. Looks like a beautiful day on the way though.

I'd go with the rib-stickin' BBQ!

Just took this a few minutes ago to give you an idea of what to expect. Leaves are just getting going.



Had the garden buttoned-up last night because of the frost. I'm about 10mi from Canuman as the crow flies.

A great ride! Great riders, scenery and critter sightings. No bugs bugging us. Canuman laid out some awesome tracks (of which we missed a few). The section from Greenville to Houlton was untouched by us due to an unplanned adjustment to Devin's leg structure.

Thanks for the tracks Canuman!
Thanks for getting the trip together Devin!
Thanks for the entertainment comrade Anton!
