My itinerary from the Adirondacks had me pointing a few hours south, but a last moment cancellation had me scrambling for a spot to lay my head (and celebrate the big birthday). What luck as I moved myself from my tent in Tupper Lake to a grand property in Pawlet, VT on 54 acres. I could most definitely pontificate on how much I enjoyed this location and the people, and how normal life felt in this rural region north of Manchester. Not only did I feel comfortable cycling, hiking, and chatting on the Green with strangers over ice cream, but I was in complete comfort in my Airbnb and ready to move in through Fall! Best of all, a good friend and I were able to meet within 35 miles to start the new year off with plenty of food and fun. I'll tell the story easily with few words as I took more than 110 photos this past week.
