Yes, if things go as planned. It may be advisable to call and see if they have any cabins available. The cabins sleep 3-4, and are pretty reasonable split that way.

EPP was just F'd up in the extreme. What finally brought it down was drugs and alcohol, but it never had a very sound foundation. There were "Hippies" and "Back to the Landers" in the 60's and 70's. The Hippies were urban and suburban, and had absolutely no idea how to live outside of their environment. Actually, some of the Back to the Landers did, and became pretty successful in small-scale farming and business. EPP attracted Hippies.

I had two contacts with EPP. Around '76 or so, my father decided to butcher a steer in Jaunary. My father never got around to things before about five in the evening. I suspect he wasn't a morning person. He was cutting up the steer at about 3 am. It was 40 below, and I suspect that ours was about the only light on at that time of night. A gal that was staying at EPP was dropped off by the side of the road, probably because she wouldn't "put out." If she hadn't knocked on the door, she likely would have died. She was in no way dressed for -40.

We all piled into our wretched family car and drove her up to Norton the next day. We hit the place at dusk, and were greeted with "Good Morning!" Just about everyone was high or drunk, and he residents were living in everything from shacks to holes in the ground. No way that community was going to last.

Many years later, I was invited to one of those weddings where you know no one somewhere in Connecticut. It was a high-end affair, and no cost was spared. Turns out the bride was the daughter of one of the founders of EPP. She and the groom were working for CNN , and both had some hellacious trust funds.

That's when the other shoe dropped.

Hate to disappoint, but I'm not a real Vermonter. I was born in Jersey City. I know how how to shovel shit, squeeze teats, chop wood and the lot.

Not all the natives were as accepting as you are. It was a rough start. Which caused a majority of the mess you are speaking of. If they were a political nuthouse, not a feather would have stirred. Nope, that is not selective persecution.

They were much more acceptable than the EPP whacko's IMO.

Hippies, diversity in a weird way.

Shame, that. I had a call from Anton. He'll be at Brighton and will lead a small bike route. I found a new gate the other day on the Paul Stream Road complete with security cameras. Seems there is a pissing contest going on between the State and the Town of Granby over access. I think there's a work-around, which I hope to scout and post tracks for tomorrow evening.

So, the event is on, but in a limited fashion. The colors are at peak, so bring a camera if you're in.

Well, with 2 days notice, I have to say I'm out. I really wanted to come up, but with a 5 hour ride, I was looking for someone to commit to leading a ride before now. I called GMB, looking for some commitment, no call back. I just told my wife I'd be home now, and that's just how it goes. Maybe next time.

I was in for big bikes but seems like this has become a limited small bike ride at this point. Bummer!

Oh sure, blame ME for you not coming to ride. Ask Anton, I don't mix well with phones. I was planning on calling you today, though, after trying to get a hold of Anton again but I guess I won't bother now.

Who the hell is left standing and still coming to this thing? So far it looks like me, Anton, jackpiner57, tdvt, and maybe ADVRich, baiku, and Shrineclown.

I'm still in. I'll be there Friday afternoon and have to be home Saturday evening before the street lights come on.

Which campsite is party central?

After your accident, I'm surprised you can even drive your car. You're one tough MOFO.

I'll be riding injured too, after hitting my bad wrist with a 2 lb sledge.

I just loaded the Gas Gas on the back of the truck. After walking a couple miles home. Looks like I'm out unless I can figure out the short before tomorrow. And I've got work to finish up today.

Most likely out, but I'll post up here if that changes.

I'm going to bow out. My back is effed up, and my skills SUCK in comparison to yours. You don't need a boat anchor in the ride. Have a great weekend, I'm looking forward to a RR.
