Question Water, Water Everywhere

"Water, Water everywhere and not a drop to drink"

Hey the only thing we need to survive is water-mostly .. So in my travels around I come upon a spring here and there so I thought to myself "Self, why not start a thread on where we can pull over and get some free clear Aqua.." But didn't really know where to put it so open to suggestions, but for the meantime thought here would be a good place..since they are in the Northeast..

So below is the first one..

I have been drinking from a spring in the Dacks for over 30 years. A few years back they posted it was no longer potable, but everyone and myself still drink from it.

There's one on Route 26 in Maine between Bryant Pond and Paris.

Also one in New Hampshire, along Route 2 between Gorham and 115 South.

Here's google's picture of the one on Route 2:

There's another on River Rd between New Milford and Gaylordsville CT. Closer to Gaylordsville. Iron pipe comes out of the side of the hill.

River Rd is a nice dirt road to ride too. Parallels Rt 7 on the other side of the Housatonic River.

What you should do is map it on Google Fusion tables.

If anyone wants to do this, lmk and I'll send you a template to get you started, and it's very easy to maintain.

You'll be able to view it on your smartphone in your away from home travels.

Wow! I wish I had seen this sooner; I drove by several of these today and would have stopped. Beautiful area.
