Turned back? Well I'm either way off where I think this tag is, or I'm not understanding you at all?

Hah! I'm gonna go bag this sucker!

What a gorgeous day!

Oh Buddy, now today was ridin' n smilin'


OK Gone-Native, official ruling.... Do I have points taken off for no...... Mr. Bill?

Hey, I'm lazy, are there rules about how far the next tag can be? Like 50 miles or anything? Me's think's tomorrow could be some serious miles, bombing the backroads, using way too much hp to VROOOM, VROOOM!

I do believe as long as you keep the tag in the state of Vermont you can go as far or not as far as you'd like.


btw what town was that near?

No rule on how far in most tags in the NE, the only one I know is the Northern New England TOR has a 50 mi minimum.

The mud wasn't so bad, but some of the road choices I made were probably, ummmm, not so wise:

http://youtu.be/54Rdis-7BAQ

This video actually went on for 8 minutes, but I edited out the loooooooooong stretches of nothing but white.

I was going for a trifecta today with the Duc-o-Rama, the VT tag, and the CT/VT/ 1/2 Mass tag but got foiled when the bike I lent my buddy to tag along died en route from Winhall to Saxton's River. That caused a 4 hour delay of going for a truck and rescuing the dead KTM. Had to get to Brattleboro for dog food, so I ditched the Mollie Beattie State Forest tag. . .

Anyway got home after leaving at noon and this is what my GPS told me (only bike miles):

Well, great ride, then local Barney Fife had to add to his towns income by giving me a "Driving Award". I was tempted to tell him he could have got me for 90 over a few miles back from his "speed trap".

but anywhooser...

had them make me a James Joyce to go along with some scallops...

Not to hijack, but redirect -

What's a James Joyce, and what scallops did you get? I checked out the menu online and didn't find those dishes.

I'd like to know what they're serving to know if the meal's worth the ride, right? This looks like a good weekend for it...
