The official SNOB website is up! (Mind you I have a few maps to create and the food page is the same as last year, but anyway...)

Jimmy, Canban, you've been PM'd the directions.

***

Food note: Sutton is close to the world-famous Brome Lake Ducks farm, which would make quite the highlight of Saturday's meal. It would mean, however, that the usual $5/meal contribution would not be enough, though...

Thoughts, opinions?

Prices have held fast since you (Helen) started this thing.    It's time to raise the price.  

You want to continue to attract the "right" kind of people.   Smile

All kidding aside, I've never believed that what you have collected in the past has covered the cost of food, nevermind all the time that goes along with hosting an event.  

IMHO, you should put out a much bigger coffee can this year.  I won't think twice about coffing up some more dosh.

 I have to agree with Jimmy. I know I threw in more than I needed to the only time I was there! I hope that I can make it back again some day soon.

SNOB menu is up!
linky

We've decided to stay away from duck -- a large quantity is complicated, it's not that filling and not that healthy (unless you compare it to the baconator...)

The theme for this year's food offering is "French Canadian Cuisine".

It appears that we do:

Here's a list, from serious posts on this thread, PMs, emails and face to face communication at the National:
  • Jimmy
  • Canban
  • DMCole
  • NHFZ1
  • cjgauthier and his SO
  • Acadian Rider
  • Shil
  • Delegate1k


I still have to get in touch with the usual suspects, aka Richard and Marty, to figure out if they're coming or not.

I think I worked out an interesting route for Sunday:
http://ridewithgps.com/routes/124735

It features in its 310 miles:
  • A nice pass on 105, eastbound, in the North East Kingdom of VT
  • Twisties with elevation change on 242, near Jay Peak
  • Smugglers Notch on 108, home of the first-gear corners
  • Appalachian Gap, on VT 17 (East to West, tight on the way up, sweepers on the way down)
  • Tracy Rd in NY
  • Twisting along the Au Sable River, NY, on 9N
  • Crossing back into Quebec onto average roads -- we might find better ones in northern VT if we have time...


****


If, in a previous post or email, you haven't told me what is your arrival date/time, please let me know, so we can plan the meals a little better. Thanks in advance.

BTW, I'll be at SNOB-Central from Thursday (July 29), so you can arrive as early as you want on Friday.

****


BTW, if you're planning on having mechanical breakdowns, please note that I have very limited tools at my chalet (as opposed to my home, where I have a compressor and a very nice set of tools.) However, there's a Honda dealer 13 km away and a couple of mechanics in the village of Sutton.

OK, here's a work-in-progress: interesting roads in Quebec, for the Saturday ride. Unfortunately, it's only 161 miles, so I need to figure out how to expand it... View it as terrain and you'll see that our options are limited... (Damn, this is not WV...)

Here's how it looks for me right now.  

I'm planning to take Friday to ride to SNOT Central.  I have two options to get there.  If I stay in Canada I'll have to do 1,000. kms of mostly slab.  If I cut across Maine I can get that down to just over 800 kms but on slower roads.  My arrival time therefore should be sometime in the evening.  

Susan who had showed interest early on is now out.  Something to do with too many kms in too short of a period of time.  Maybe next time.

I will be leaving from work, so....I should be arriving Friday between 6 and 7 pm.


Here are a couple of notes and suggestions for the Sunday ride.  

This Richmond to Richmond route is around 315 miles.

http://tinyurl.com/3x8yzf5

First a disclaimer.  Google maps is not playing very well today.  At Rouses Point the route is supposed to go straight into Vermont.  Google maps has its' own ideas so, just go straight if you go this route.

In late May I rode VT 105 and VT 242 around Jay Peak.  At that time they were pretty rough.  I don't know if they have improved since then.

VT 118 from East Berkshire to VT 109 has been paved within the last couple of years and I think is quite good.

VT 108 almost into Stowe I added a bypass around the downtown.  Unless you really want to go into town.

In New York:

Take CR 4 and CR42 (Ensign Pond Road) then Rt 9 to Tracy Road (I enjoy EP Road more than Tracy) then Rt 7 to Elizabethtown.   Rt 7 had a bunch of paving done last year.  You will enjoy this group of roads, trust me.

At Ausable Forks I have never been north on Rt 9.  I take Silver Lake Road (don't miss the right at Silver Lake) up to Rt 3 and Standish Road up to Rt 374 (all of this is CR 1).  Rt 374 had some paving last year but I don't know how far east it went from here.

The remainder of the NY County Roads would be all new to me.  I look at some of my reference sources and try to pick something that "feels good".  The Vermont roads on the return were chosen for the same "feels good" reason.

I sometimes select roads this way because I prefer to ride off the beaten track.  Sometines you ride some clinkers but sometimes you find some little gems.

Thanks for the route suggestion, Chuck.

BTW, set your GPS for Richford, VT, not Richmond -- that one will get you somewhere south of Burlington (SSOB).
