I am in and paid up! Hopefully that Moose on Rte. 100 won't try and kill me again. Leaving from Portland Friday morning.

I'm planning on the 6 gap ride Saturday. All roads mostly paved. I also hope to cross paths with the moto giro and spectate a bit. Friday I might check out the new Champlain Bridge and ride some in NY. Is that floating bridge in VT still open? Where is it?

The bridge is in Brookfield, and has been closed since '07. It was pretty treacherous on a bike even before that.

I'm pretty sure I can get Screech at the package store across the street. You want me to get you some?

Screech is available at many VT state liquor stores, $14.99/750 ml. (Probably twice that up in Canada.)

In tax-free Cow Hampshire, it's $12.99 until the end of the month.

The requisite cod and the sou'wester may be more difficult to come by.

There may be a lot of Screech smuggling going on northbound.

Never heard of it before, but after a bit of research, this Screech shite sounds like it may be more than a little fun! Not as fun as Ouzo, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.
