Sixwatt and wife do these all year long and make donations to the Pan Mass Challenge. Good people, good deeds, good food and good people to know.

PS, you were already "in" whether you knew it or not.

Hi all,

This year Naiomi and myself are thinking of joining the party, after all it is her birthday that weekend. And whats better is someone else is doing the planning.

My question is honey can't ride long or do off road for even shorter time. This is probably blasphemous but is there any group doing slab running. She can keep up to the party no problem

So every year for me is the same thing, Cromag is run on honey's birthday. Please help me, help her to want to join this party.

Either death seems very much like real life, or we are all still here! Either way, the post apocalypse version of CroMag is moving forward. Just got the paperwork from the state and we are looking forward to seeing you all there.

After surviving my first Cromag I think we will have a good day or two of two track next year. You shouldn't have any problem getting that 690 filthy.

Lure of Green Cards Brings Big Investments for Remote Resort in Vermont
Developers with big plans for Jay Peak and nearby Newport have got millions in financing under a program that gives foreigners a green card in exchange for a $500,000 investment.

Newport, Vt is a nice town on the border.

Intersting piece Old Lion. Hope they don't run bust before they are done and leave a mess....although, it will be hard to take for some who do not like change.

Happy New Years to all you FF's! I hope your pleasures are many and your troubles few in 2013.

Newport as well as Richford have had a lot of adjusting to do since we
closed the border. They used to cross unhindered to go to the diners.
No more.

As a guy who grew up in North Troy, I can say you are absolutely correct. btw, if you want to add 7 more miles to the top of the Puppy Dog route, google "vincent's road" ...

Not far at all.

Moved to the area at 10 years old, in 1979. Back then, the buildings on the US side were pretty much just as they'd been left... quickly. Still furnished, with coffee cups still on some of the desks. Weird, spooky stuff.

The gun itself was apparently on the Canadian side, but back then we didn't know it- SRI had its own border crossing inside the compound so you didn't know when you'd crossed. I never saw the gun itself, but a lot of area kids did after they closed and before it got dismantled. There's a book out there called "the Man and the Gun" or something like that, about Bull's life.

In the early 80's, if you knew where to go, you could ride a dirt bike or snowmobile up toward the end of the Long Trail and slip the fence and ride around inside the facility. When I was thirteenish another kid and I got chased out of there on our dirt bikes by "someone" and it was a long time before we ever went back in. No idea if they were cops, border patrol (very rare in those days), or what. We saw people in vehicles heading our way, and we split.

Last time I was in the compound itself was about twelve years ago, the main office building was in a pretty serious state of disrepair. Rode by there this summer, there is a fairly substantial gate there now.

Weird, crazy bizarre story. Makes you wonder how many other stories and places there are out there just like that one.

I love the lean-to auction idea!! It's a great way to raise $$ for a very worthy charity.
No matter what, you will always have someone bitch about it.
If you don't have the auction, people will bitch that other people came early and got the shelters. At least there is positive Karma attached to this may.

"
On the evening of March 22, 1990, Dr. Gerald Bull got out of a car in
Brussels, Belgium and headed back to his apartment.


Gerald Bull got out of the elevator and walked toward his apartment.
From the shadows another shadow stepped, holding a silenced pistol.

Three shots were fired into the back of Gerald Bull and, after he fell, two more into his head for good measure.
Gerald Bull was dead.
