Route 100. VT
Cool area, only been there once in my life, mannnny years ago, in mid winter.. in a 4x4 truck... during a blizzard..
always want to return there on 2 wheels.
It was some awesome riding. We crossed the green mountain forest twice. Took the Essex ferry back to NY. Now having dinner in lake Placid.
Look, a barge on a barge
Do you have gps coordinates for him
We were up there last year on route 15 through Stowe on our way to Mount Washington. GPS Coordinates will be helpful.
Went to the EmersonMotoWorks website and it says that Dave passed away in 2011. There is no address of where this place is.
VT-100 & Liberty Hill Rd
Pittsfield, VT 05762
I hope this does it.
I picked nutzy up once in NY and left him in NY once. I don’t know if he has been to VT. One time I left my brothers place in Boston MA headed for CT to leave nutzy there. A huge storm rolled up the coast is as I was leaving, so I went straight back to NY and missed most of the storm. I also picked him up in NH.
So I have had him 3 times. ....So far.
BTW One thing I learned today never ask @David R for directions or a GPS. His Google Map Address was 8 miles of road or 4.5 miles of fun not taking a Goldwing down it seasonal road. Took me a bit to find as I came south on 107 and looked for a good half hour or more for it. But in the end I found it by asking in a gas station.

I apologies for poor directions. The pin looks like where I dropped it. Glad you got it. Nutzy is on a new adventure.
I went south on 100 from Hancock. Drove till I saw the drop.
Have a safe ride today.
David and Laurie
I think being busier than I thought and oppressive heat means he may be going on a short one. I may just drop him local to me today.
Nutsy is up here
There are three corners, he is the top where these two meet
BTW ride the entire road from whichever side you come from. It is my favorite road in the Catskills.
When I was about 10 years old, I spent a weekend with my cousin’s family near there. We ate at a commune in Big Indian that grew their own beef, and made fresh squeezed lemonade. I’ll always remember that meal.
Great road, and an inspired choice for placing this tag!
Thanks for such a great location. Today was an absolutely perfect day to ride! Weather was awesome, traffic in the Catskills was non-existent, and I discovered some great new roads, and re-rode some of my favorites.
Rt.42 from Lexington to Shandaken - the temperature in the notch was at least 10 degrees cooler than at the base. I don't know how I have missed this road in the past? Beautiful pavement too.
Little Red Kill Rd. and Big Red Kill Rd. to Denver - I took a chance on these, as the terrain looked great, and it was. Then onto 36 and then Scudder Hill Rd. to get back to 30. All were awesome!
Cold Spring RD. to W Settlement Rd. to Roxbury Mtn. Rd. to Narrow Notch Rd. to Township Rd. into Hobart. Gorgeous views and elevation changes and no traffic!
Barnerville Rd. to Grovenors Corners Rd. to Lykers Rd. to Corbin Hill Rd. to 30A to Hughes Rd. to 161 and then back to 30. Again, amazing views, etc., and no traffic.
The roads I traveled today in the Catskills were nearly empty. I think there are so many more private camps in the Adirondacks, as well as water which attracts lots of people. I did see lots of cars at some of the Catskill trailheads, but nothing compared to the summer influx in the Adirondacks. The road surfaces were mostly good today as well, and the Catskills are every bit as beautiful as the Adirondacks, just in a different way. I was about 286 miles round trip for the day, so I really need to do some more exploring there, as it makes a perfect distance for a day ride.
New location early next week, as he needs to move north and east a bit I think.
I almost forgot - I saw this hawk in the road near Blenheim, and he didn’t fly when I went by, so I did a U-turn to see if he was injured. As I was getting off my bike on the shoulder, a car passed right over him and he never moved.
As I approached, he finally flew up to this sign:
Anyone know if he is a juvenile large hawk or a full grown small hawk?
His right foot looked deformed but not bloody or recently injured.
Glad you enjoyed it...I had a family and then my own place in the Dacks for almost 35 years and living in NYC spent a lot of time and roads in the Catskills. IMO the Catskills has better roads, as there are so many more roads and because of that, there are less cars on them.
If you ever want to explore more of the Catskills reach out for some route ideas.
By the look of what tail feathers visible in the photo, I would judge it as a Juvenile red tail Hawk, also the dark patches below the eyes, and the actual amount and height on the body the frontal variegated colors are seen.. when fully mature, the frontal feathers lower, and create a kind of belly band of darker ones.. but closely growing to the mature stage.... as for the foot, many different things happen to animals, if a Hawk takes on an animal for food, it could be bitten, and infected (i.e. opposum / Raccoon, House cat, etc.) and the loss of the toes would result. Hawks do fight each other tho, and I would think that as the cause... or, could simply be a birth defect, but not likely.. cool pic tho, marvelous birds, I have a couple in my woods in Ohio, that regularly visit me..
