New Hampshire 2009 Day 3

Went to the breakfast buffet this morning and met a couple from Elmira, NY. We talked to them for at least an hour about Harleys, horses, houses and antiques. Susie got the womans phone number and email before we left.
Then we went for about a 2 mile walk from one end of town to the other and back. It was a little chilly but nice temperature for a walk. I think with all the fudge and other eats we have had for the last month, I think we better get to walking again. LOL!
So we left Lake Placid, NY about 9:45 AM and it was starting to warm up. We rode to Tupper Lake, Cranberry Lake, Star Lake and then to Harrisville, NY for lunch at the little diner on the corner. I think the name of it is Rosies. They have very good food and are nice people if you happen to be in the area. Since I am advertising I will advise not to stay at the Best Western in Lake Placid. It is over priced and not up to par with most Best Western Motels. Phil and Kristi, the couple we met, agree with us on that.
Then from Harrisville we went to Fargo, Carthage, Champion, Watertown, Evans Mills, and Philadelphia, NY where we stopped for gas and to get rid of some coffee. haha From Philadelphia we headed to Antwerp and took the left turn just outside of Antwerp to Oxbow. I had never been on that rode and wanted to check it out since it was still fairly early.
From Oxbow we went to Rossie and cut across to Brasie Corners and went straight across on the California Road, which I had never been on. We took a left at the end of the California Road and ended up in Popes Mills. So that was quite a stretch of new road for the both of us and a nice slow paced ride.
From Popes Mills we went straight through Edwardsville to Morristown where we stopped at a new little cafe on Main Street. We each had just a cup of coffee and it was $3.40. NO WONDER THEY DON'T GET MUCH BUSINESS.
We left Morristown and went to Ogdensburg and then home for a total 3 day trip of 799 miles. It was a nice 3 day trip and we are looking forward to the next one but it probably won't be this year. For the rest of the year we will probably just do one day rides that will put us back at home by the end of the day.

PS: All the riding we did today was in NY state in case some of you aren't familiar with the name of the towns and I think Albert wants me to buy him this little tractor. LOL!
It was a great time as always. :)

New Hampshire 2009 Day 2

Cold start at 8:30 am of 35 degrees. We waited for the sun to get over the mountain and decided to head out.

We rode the Kancamagus Scenic Byway from Lincoln, NH to Conway, NH. It was only 8.5 miles to Maine from there so we went into Maine and then came back to the State Line Country Store which also has a Dunkin' Donut in it and had coffee and donuts.

Then we headed up Rt. 16 toward North Conway to pick up Rt. 302 to Littleton, NH. That was a bad mistake. There was a traffic jam in North Conway on a Sunday morning and it took close to an hour to get through. Anyway we hit I-93 to St. Johnsbury, VT and then Rt. 2 to Middlesex, Vt, Rt 100B to Rt. 100 then picked up Rt. 17 to Chimney Point where we crossed into New York State where we took Rt. 9N to Keene, NY and then Rt. 73 to Lake Placid where we are spending the night.

We will be home tomorrow sometime. It is supposed to go down in the 40's again tonight so we will probably get a late start again. We should be OK though Susie and I got a pound of fudge from the Candy Man here in Placid so we should be all set. LOL!!

New Hampshire 2009

We left home this morning about 8 AM and headed out. We took Route 11 to Rouses Point, NY and crossed the bridge into Alburg, VT. We stopped at the welcome center to refresh our memory on the Route up through Smuggler's Notch to Stowe, VT. Then we took Rt. 100 to Waterbury and jumped on I-89 and got off at the Barre, VT exit and took Rt. 302 East to Wells River, VT and crossed into NH to Woodsville. Got off 302 and onto 112 (Kancamagus Highway) as far as Lincoln, NH. It took a while but we finally found a vacancy at the Rodeway Inn after checking 5 or 6 other places. If you go to the Lincoln, NH area Labor Day weekend call ahead for a reservation or you may not get a room.
We went to Truant's for supper (we love that place) for the 4th time in 2 years. It is a neat looking place with very good food.
Tomorrow we finish riding the best part of the Kancamagus Highway from here to Conway, NH which is about 8 miles from the border of Maine. Probably get a late start because they are calling for temperatures in the low to middle 40's.

Local Ride

Thursday the 3rd of September we took a fairly long local ride. The temperature was about 75 degrees. I got done work and we went to Canton, Raymondville, Waddington, Ogdensburg, Black Lake, Gouvenuer and then back to De Kalb Jct. for a total of 128 miles. We didn't and usually don't take pictures on local rides.
