Glad you liked Markbvt's Trans-VT route! He's one of the better route-makers I know - I followed him for 3000 miles this spring down to TN/VA/NC and back without looking at my own map once. He's up there on the TLH with you as we speak, so I hope you get to meet face to face.
I'll be following you up there in a few weeks, so am eager to hear your reports on conditions, etc. Safe riding and hopefully there will be no repeats of the mattress incident... ever, as in, in the history of motorcycling from now going forward.
