Route looks good to me (and I can make a few minor modifications to include some "gap" roads and some other "interesting roads"  along the route Grin

Lets ride!

Hi Peter and all involved,

The cabins look great!

Please take a look at this. We would have to be in Burlington by 5 to make the last ferry. This saves 50+ miles.

I also prefer taking some variant of Route 2 to Colrain, then getting onto 112, which turns into 100. I think it's a more scenic route, BUT $.002 is not worth much these days! I see that this is similar to your return route, in part, but I still think its worth doing. Please count on my french friend Patrice joining us.

Then take the ferry, which is ~ 30 minutes

Then from Port Kent to Wilmington

Alright!

Then, someone should call that cabin place and reserve enough cabins for 8?

Ben, I am all for going the rt100 up to Burlington, but I was afraid Treeve people will complain since it is a longer route. I am game one way or another.

I believe, after we agree on a route, we should all load it to our GPS', pencil it on our maps, input it in our phones, program it in our helmets, memorize it or whatever works, just so we all know where we are going.

Hi All,

2 of those cabins are described as sleeping 9 or 10, should we try to rent one for all of us?

I think they could sleep 9 or 10 when beds are shared and pullout cauches are used. Now, I like you all, but I share a bed only with my wife and I am not sleeping on  a pullout couch! Wink
I think we would need two cabins at least.

ok, two cabins=350. or so per night divided by 8, about 45. each. Is that doable for all?

On a closer look, the Beechwood cabin has 7 single beds. Am I reading this correct? - http://www.wildernessinnadk.com/Beechwood.html  

If so, that would be cool! I am not sure that John is coming and if he is, someone ( not me :-) could sleep on a couch. That would be REALLY cheap! What do you guys think?
But even if we rent two cabins, that's still a bargain I think. I am game either way and if we can fit in one cabin it will be more fun and we'll have money for extra beer Grin

Hey guys, happy march!

One of my favourite roads in VT is the section of VT Rt 30 from Manchester to Poultney--I may prefer the southbound direction but both directions are fantastic!!
 
Another favourite I just discovered this past fall is Rt 140 from Rt 103 (NW of Ludlow/ also off of Rt 155, both of which hit Rt 100) to Poultney...  backroad twisties (and little traffic for me at height of leaf peeping).

I could also suggest going through the farmlands above Poultney (take Rt. 30) and then to 73, cross lower lake at Ticonderoga (ferry)?  I had en epic ride on incredible roads from Lake Placid to Bratt in 2006 and for the life of me I can't remember the roads /or where I crossed prob Whitehall (bridge, maybe a toll?). 

Anyway, perhaps something to consider for this trip, or for another day jaunt if you're in the southern VT zone.

   Can't you see Peter from her avatar? Her bike has no forks, wheel etc., etc. Grin Grin Grin She couldn't possibly lead the way. Tongue

   Sorry Bethanie I don't think we've met. Don't take it wrong, just having some fun at Peter's expense.

Before cabins are booked I'd like to ask if anyone else snores? I'd hate to be the only one and wind up out in my tent somewhere out of earshot so the rest can sleep.
I wouldn't mind a higher rate but a roommate would help.

Thoughts? Volunteers?
