I was thinking we would get up there and maybe start the route Friday, finish it Saturday, and wander back Sunday.  We'll have to try to end the days not too close to tourist land.  I have a rough route, will send it along after another edit.  None of it is cast in stone, we can do whatever we want.

Don't get me wrong. That's a great loop. But there are some ADK roads that are great and off that beaten path. Tracy Rd. for one.

I'll consider anything.  Just needed a place to start.

Tracy Rd and Ensign Pond Rd are great.

You thinking meet at the DD?  which one is it?  Meeting that far north, and with local Friday morning traffic, I would push the start back from 0830.

Friday morning traffic north bound in the summer is pretty minimal.
That's a more direct starting point for me, which DD?

The DD is part of a gas station.  Its the near Bradley Airport. Actually 8:30 is almost perfect cause you should go through Hartford at 8am.  At least in the past I never have had issues with 8am, 7:30 is a whole other story.   :banghead: :banghead:

That DD is in the first gas station on the left, just after the airport when heading towards Granby.

Are you guys gearing up for the rain Friday? I've got a trip planned Friday to Monday in that same general direction.
