That sure would pile on the miles. You'd need one with lower miles than Kaws to keep up with the parts runs.

That took a lot longer than I thought it would.

I had not seen that. Hope to get busy this weekend and clear some branches and brush. Enough natural rocks and trees to get me started for now. Eventually might build some artificial obstacles.

As threatened...

The new NH Historical Highway Markers Tag-o-Rama

I opted to start the list from scratch, per EC's suggestion.
But I couldn't bring myself to allow file photos...

Hey NNE riders - I'm heading up to Killington area next weekend and wanted to try something different other than going over to Quechee. Are there any moto or auto museums or cool dealers up in that general area?

Or any other type of place that's worth seeing?

Sadly I will be caging it, will have too many people in tow.

Thanks

Rhino, Hi!

Hemmings Motor News has a great car collection at their headquarters in Bennington, and it's free.

http://www.hemmings.com/aboutus/tour

Billings Farm Museum is pretty interesting, and that's in Woodstock.

http://www.billingsfarm.org/


Bud Provin's shop, The Nickwackett Garage, is always interesting to stop in and see. Bud is a great guy, and extremely knowledgeable.

http://thenickwackettgarage.com/bmw/...107&Itemid=154


The American Precision Museum is very interesting and has lots of very cool collections. In the 1800's and 1900's the Connecticut Valley Region of Vermont was known to be one of the largest tool and die manufacturing regions in the world.

http://www.americanprecision.org/about/apm



There's the Montshire Science Museum in Norwich

http://www.montshire.org/




The Shelburne Museum has something for everyone. It never feels crowded on it's 45 acres. Check out the Horse Shoe Barn with all the carriages and tack.

http://shelburnemuseum.org/visit/abo.../museum-story/


Do you any of those interest you?


Liz

Do be aware that if the Marsh-Billings stuff is of interest, you'll want to hope the Congresscritters have gotten their act together—its a federal historic site and thus currently closed due to a lack of funding.

Of course, if the weather cools off any further, you may want to bring skis.
