    Yep. Hit these barriers last week during our visit and meeting up with Haymaker that day. I could hear banjos playing from that house.

    We finished up the Hampster route Sunday afternoon and on our way to the start of the Puppy Dog we tried riding this west from where it intersects the Hampster route on Magalloway Rd in Pittsburgh. We turned left on to rte 145 we ran into a locked gate at the next right turn....found a way around and hit a gate at the other end that wasn't so easy to get around but we improvised.....after that we gave up and headed for the north end of the Puppy dog. Ended up riding the Hampster and Puppy dog in 3 days...1050 miles total.

    Looking at doing a four day trip this summer. First stop from home will be Rangely. From there, I have something like this:

    Then from Millinocket to Aristicook:

    From there I'll be taking roadways to spend a night in Camden NH before I head home. Big concern are the logging and paper roads. I'm being told don't even bother with the area around Katadhin. Motorcycles are not permitted and I'll be kicked off. Like the area between Morrill ME and just above Williamsburg won't work. How much of a pain in the ass is it really to navigate up there? I've done Campobello before and there were a few roads that had me give in and just take RT1 (boring) back.

    Not sure if they'll let you ride a motorcycle through katahdin ironworks from Greenville, Maine. They have gates and fees and are pretty strict about motorcycles, even though you see quads and utvs. Theres atv trails from sebec lake village to Brownville to Millinocket that are worth checking out if you want to stay off pavement on route 11. Also theres a beautiful dirt road that runs up the east shore of schoodic lake that can cut some more pavement miles heading north. I'll be there Wednesday for six days at my grandparents camp on schoodic lake. From Millinocket you can follow Millinocket stream road (another good dirt road) to the monument all dirt and then connect back in Stacyville. Those are just the area's I know well and ride my drz and tiger there regularly.

    This is what I was somewhat expecting. Looks like I have no real choice but to go south of that Katadhin Mtn. Range. That's fine I guess.
    Aw man, that's perfect! Was planning on stopping at Wilderness Edge campground in Millinocket. +1 internets to you fine sir.

    And I have no idea what those roads are like. I just punched in Rangely to Millinockey on Google maps, dragged the path around a little, and boom. Its only 165 miles so I'll dilly dally around checking things out on the way.

    So I did a small part of the NNEAT on 5/29/18 and found a washout and a reroute. I picked up the trail heading north on "East branch road" off of 105 in Bloomfield VT
    (44.7788053,-71.6583222)

    About six miles up the road was blocked off with huge boulders.
    (44.8570213,-71.6807522)

    On the other side of the boulders a trench was dug
    IMG_4674.JPG
    And on the other side of that was a minor washout.
    IMG_4668.JPG
    We doubled back to 105 headed a bit west and then north into the "Silvio O. Conte National Fish and Wildlife Refuge" on "stone dam rd"

    From there it looked as though we could make it all the way north parallel to the route on dirt all the way to 114 and then head back east meet back up with the route. IMG_4983.PNG
    It was a spectacular detour along smooth forest roads and along the power lines full of amazing views (we even saw a black bear!)
    IMG_4779.JPG
    But then only a few miles from 114 we found another wash out.
    (44.9433430,-71.7610460)
    IMG_4795.JPG
    So we doubled back again! With no more roads in my delorme gazetteer, or gps that looked to connect east we were frustrated but figured we would try whatever we found on the left heading south.
