    Hello, my name is Will and I'm about to begin my tour of North America in October! I'm starting from Toronto, Canada and making my way through to the east coast in Cape Cod, then head down south to Florida before it gets to cold, make my way westward to California, then head up north to Alaska for mid June, then back home again. I was wondering if it's ok for me to pitch a tent in your yard as I make my way to Cape Cod. I'll be going through the Adirondack and staying away from the interstates, basically I just let the gps do the planning. I dunno, human interaction is always better than finding a place in the cuds and interacting with bears. Just thought I might throw this out there if you have a patch of grass to spare.

    Hope to see you soon,

    Will

    You're welcome here in VT in tent or in spare bedroom. 30 miles south of Stanstead PQ/Derby Line VT crossing, 6 miles off 1-91.

    Already getting cold for this end of the trip, hope you are starting soon. Not much room in the house (we are packrats, been here a long time) but there is room in the yard and a camper sitting in the driveway you could use. Central NH, just a bit east of Concord if you are coming this way. Let me know.

    If you measure geographically ...... you are indeed correct! If you go by population density ..... we'd be closer to being Northern NH.
