The Great Adventure starts at Daybreak

I will be driving across Vermonts Northeast Kingdom. There are two primary routes across this tundra. There is Route 105 which I used to travel to Maine. The more circular path is 114 goes across the Norther VT Border and lets one out at Beechers Fall NH.

The path will take me to remote lakes like Lake Wallace and Averil. I will drive past miles of swamps and through a notch or two. I planned the gas stops and was informed there are gas station in Averil and Beechers falls. On my return trip I will drive along route 2 through some of Vermonts finest Parkland.

Taking pictures in this region is not easy as the locals drive at high speeds and the State Troopers watch anyone with exotic plates. There is evidence of rampant porcupines but I did not encounter them on my last trip.

exotic plates?

we have them with trout here in arkansas and know the artist personally - would they hit us if we had them?

Sounds like an interesting trip. Gas in our area came down a nickel, though the prices are still rediculous. Awaitting your review, locals tend to forget that their area might be interesting to outsiders!
Have a good, safe trip!
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

Beak,

It's the same in the South. Drivers in Tennessee go like the wind.
