MY VT trip was good

Went up East side of QUabbin and over French King to Green River Road and road dirt to Wilmington VT

Then straight up 100 to Bethel, VT Rt 100 was crowded going both ways and my companion was NOT comfortable passing enough to make good time.

I came home down 12 to 106, 35 etc which had less traffic and I would recommend for VT travelers

Screwed up and went through Brattleboro should have taken east/west-middle rd and crossed on rt9

Cross into NH to get some aerial 7/4 celebrations then down 78 and home same way

475 in 11 hours


Best of luck in Colorado, My brother is at an MC rally but not sure where

Ok ..so back to the riding.. I called all the campgrounds listed on the Berkshire ride thread and they have Zero availabilty for this weekend. Prospect mountain campground, where we stayed for the ride can give us three tent spots on the same road we stayed on.. but farther up the road. They are $33 bucks a night.. which is steep.. and makes me wonder if I owe anyone any money for the Berkshire ride So I need to get an who is thinking about joining us? Alcontrast, mrt10x, rhodehazard seem to be in for sure.. anyone else? Going to have to pull the trigger on this pretty quick. I searched Tolland State park and I couldnt find two spots together anywhere in July.

If you guys could push it up a weekend or two, where we stopped during the BBA may be available. Im just not available this weekend, have a friend coming into town & need to pick him up @ JFK on Friday night.



It would be free..

I am hosting a family reunion on the 7th. If I can create an identical replica of myself out of soap in time, I will be able to go.

I'm completely out for this weekend and next. Then Thrill and Chill is the following weekend.

You'se guys have the route sheet. I've ridden that course to death lately anyway.

I used to have a trailer in a campground in Otis. Laurel Ridge. Check there for avail campsites. This is weird because the 4TH falls on a Wed and that makes both weekends a possible to connect as a five days off in a row, so campgrounds will be pretty full both weekends.
