Brilliant. This one is staying in the subscribed folder. It needs to be read and re-read.

Ah, Bravo! You made it to Lake Willoughby (stumbled upon it!). This is a gem of a lake, and the local you met is right...spread the word of its beauty wisely. Please!

But, now that you have been and experienced it you MUST come back and stay. The hiking and views above the lake is comparable to nearly nothing. I am happy you rode through Vermont. It is my state that I have grown up in and continue to live in and love. Come back again, and when you do I will show you roads and trails up mountains and ridges and clear creeks and lakes that only 29 years of living here can bring you!!

Thank you for such wonderful documentation of your ride. It was excellent.

Excellent time!

It was so cool to be reading along, vicariously enjoying the journey, and then have The Fearless Five call from Quebec City looking for vegetables and a place to chill for the night! Well of course there's room at the inn, and I'm flattered you made me part of your epic journey. Tell you what, when I finally get the commune together--Portland, maybe?--I want all of you to be a part of it.
Thanks for your compnay, and we'll get totgether again soon!

Fantastic report. The photography blows me away - only in my dreams will I ever have an eye like that. And the riding - you guys are such a team. Thanks so much for bringing us along and sharing so much of the ride. And I'm glad you stopped here in VT for a few moments. It is a very special place.

Vermont Route

This report is absolutely fantastic! Thank you! As for a great route through VT, +2 on route 100. I've done it many times. One suggestion is that you follow 100 till you hit North Hyde Park, take 100C towards route 15 towards Jeffersonville. In Jeffersonville go on 108 through Smugglers Notch into Stowe and you WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! The notch road is amazing!

Yet again, AMAZING JOB AND THANKS!
