Brattleboro, VTUnlike our Le Roy-to-Richfield Springs jaunt, the routing to Brattleboro took us an extra 60 miles to keep us on major roads. It was a surprisingly easy drive for anyone able to ignore the Type-A's flying around the rig. Most were really friendly giving us their best single-finger wave as they cut in front of us. The drive took us to Albany, NY, then thru a corner of Massachusetts before turning north and heading into Vermont. So we were in some high-traffic areas and I'm sure they were glad to see the last of us. Thankfully we were through the area well ahead of commute time.

Our cable reception was not so good, so I mentioned it to the person at the desk who got someone over to look at it (too young to be a Dead Head, but he is and had a great Jerry Garcia T-shirt). In the conversation which followed we learned they had just built a large dog run, so we headed over and turned the girls loose. Kelly went nuts! She just loved running on the grass and took at least a dozen laps. Didn't hear another peep from Kelly the rest of the nite!
And to keep the girls company they also have a miniature horse they keep at the park, stabled next to the dig run. This is a scaled down version of a full sized horse, not like the big-bellied, ill-tempered Shetland ponies I'm used to seeing. When we approached the park, we saw the owner's son had the mini-horse (about 4' at the shoulders maybe) out for a run in the same fenced area. He was having a great time running. Very tame and friendly. Unfortunately I've given up trying to carry the camera when we have the dogs out for a walk, so I don't have any photos.

Not sure if there's a special event for bikers, but we saw a lot of motorcycles the closer we got to Vermont. We've been seeing more and more the further we get to the northeast. Great riding country for riding a motorcycle with lots of direction and grade changes to make it interesting.
