    Well, I just got an email from the Waybury Inn in Middlebury, and all is well for our accommodations, as well as the approach from the New York side. I'm sure there will be some road construction/reconstruction to deal with in some way. Hopefully the next few days will get some more of the roads passable and we will be able to see at least a small part of what sounds like a great destination state for motorcycle riding. I'm sure the people living there and having to deal with the aftermath of the storm are hoping for a return to some kind of normal as well.

    For those of you who wish to and are able, we are planning on having a work day on Saturday to help flood victims. More on this later.

    Yes, Moondog, I'll send your greetings :-)

    I see you are headed up/over from Grove City, which route are you taking? Looking at the 511 NY and VT web sites, there are a number of roads closed still (though we have 3 1/2 days yet). We were planning to cross into NY past Carbondale, PA, then up NY Rt 30, but at this point might take NY Rt 10 to avoid delays/closures. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    I'm hoping to come in via I89 and when we get close, stop and ask for some local knowledge input as to how to get to the CG.

    Hopefully there'll be some route that gets us there. With Rte 73 closed or designated emergency vehicles only, is there another route that gets us to the CG?

    We'll be heading north on NY 10 (had planned on NY 30, but too many problems), then east on NY 8, then NY 9N into VT, and hope to stay just north of 73, then south to CG. The roads I'm looking at may not be open either, as they are county roads so don't show up on the state 511VT road closures. Friday might turn into a long day............

    I've changed the route plan half a dozen times already as road conditions change, hope to see more roads open prior to our departure Friday morning, but think I found a passable route.

    Very hopeful that it stops raining soon, for the sake of a fun/safe rally, but more importantly for the poor souls who live near creeks up there. Not to mention the already depleted state budgets that now have tens of millions of dollars of road/bridge repairs to deal with.

    Riding to Wellsboro, Pa. Wensday night and up into the Adarondacks Thursday. Rt 10 and 8 are both nice, then catch the ferry over the lake at Ticondaroga. Hope to see you there. Enjoy the ride.

    We are planning on staying in Middlebury, but the roads to the campground access road still shows as closed or emergency vehicles only. Is there any kind of contact number which could be used for local information once we arrive?

    I called the campground and asked if 73 was open and they answered yes it is open from Brandon to the West but not Rochester to the East.

    According to this map
    http://crisislanding.appspot.com/?cr...ooding_vermont

    Rte 73 is now open all the way across. That is definitely good news

    No, RT 73 is shown as closed in Rochester where it joins RT 100. See the next post.
