Map 2007 – Jul 29, 2007
By popular demand, we’ve changed the format and no longer have two groups meeting somewhere in the middle of the country. We now have one group starting in one place and returning there 9 days later. It will be a meander through New England. The mileage will average around 250 miles per day, giving us plenty of time to stop at scenic locations, take leisurely meals and meet up with friends and folks along the way. Here’s the route for 2007:
7/29 Leave Philadelphia on I-76 through PA via I-476
I-81 to Whitney Point, NY.
Then Route 79 to Ithaca, NY
Route 89 up the west shore of Lake Cayuga and over to Syracuse.
7/30 Syracuse to Ogdensburg via the shore of Lake Ontario
then Rte 416 to Ottawa
7/31 Ottawa to Ogdensburg via 416.
Hwy 68 to Colton. Hwy 56 south to Hwy 3.
Then rte 86, 35 & 73 to Keene (NY). 9N to Hwy 22.
Then Hwy 4 to Rutland and Hwy 7 to Middlebury.
8/1 Middlebury to St. Johnsbury via Montpelier, the smallest state capitol in the US, Watertown (Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream factory!!) and Burlington.
8/2 I-93 to Rte 302 to Rte 117 in Maine. Then it’s 202 through Augusta picking up Rte 3 up to Ellsworth.
8/3 Bar Harbor up the coast to Eastport (furthest eastern point in the US) and back around to Bangor.
8/4 Bangor, Maine to White River Junction, VT. via some very pretty back roads.
8/5 White River Junction to Lakeville, CT where we’ll have lunch with Lori Rubinstein and John McGraw at their house and take a swim. They have a lake! (hence the name of the town)
8/6 Head south for Philly.
