    Exactly!

    Trying to plan a good ride that will cross the ferry at Addison Point (free) go through the Adirondacks and return and take the second ferry at Ticonderoga (couple of bucks); two cruises in one day!

    Personally, I will have routes planned, and programmed into the GPS, prior to arriving at the rally.
    That is what we are working on!

    That's the plan. We're in the process of mapping favorite local rides to incorporate the interesting terrain that abounds here, and creating downloadable .gpx files. Hope to have a dozen or more completed in the near future. Stay tuned. Best, Lyman

    Lyman originally traveled the roads of Vermont with Ethan Allen and the Green Mountain Boys. He knows every twist, turn, hoot and hollow in the state. Lyman knows roads that Madd Maps and Moto-Maps haven't heard about yet.

    Stay tuned.

    I have a question about this Rally. Is this open to everyone or only RA members? Also, is it necessary to contact someone to reserve a campsite? Is there a charge for attending this? I've been to the website but didn't find any answers, and would like to attend. Any info would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Bob

    Fantastic! I'll see you there! By the way love Spring Lake. We head down there once a year and stay at the spring lake inn. Nice people.

    Thanks for the info and see you in VT!

    An old shot, but you can get the idea.

    Open to everyone.

    Reserve a campsite? There is so much room available that you could build an 18 hole golf course at the site and still have room left over.

    Info? Click here.

    It would be wonderful to get to both rallies but if time is limited and you live in the East, Pownal is the perfect location.

    what we need is a real campfire. Not a bonfire but a magnificant large campfire..... something like but larger than the one we build in Meat Cove during the Salty Fog Riders Rally (plug... plug). Who knows what this concept might evolve into. - Bob

    I heard that coming early and doin' a lil' fishin' was possible. Is this so? Does it cost us more to come early.... like the 29th? We might be the only ones there but we are willing to assist with setup. - Bob

    No charge for coming early. Will have a spot reserved for you as soon as the snow melts.

    Great many hands make for light work!

    Even better: a three-day out-of-state VT license isn't that unreasonable.

    oh this just keeps gettin' better!! I'm bringing a frying pan and a little propane stove just for a taste of those Vermont critters! Well, ok, I fish just about as good as I play hockey...... but maybe I'll get lucky. - Bob

    Bring a trotline and some garden hackle. The purists will blanch at such apostasy but ...

    I will that bonfire idea. Will check it out with the ground officials.
