Directions to Mike's
For now these directions should be considered
Beta versions. I just threw them together for
something that people can use while I was getting settled, and have
done some minor tweaking. But, I can't test
their usefulness myself, since I already know the routes, so I need
people who are trying to follow them to
let me know what parts need
So far these are mostly "from the Boston area". From most of Massachusetts,
Rhode Island and Connecticut, you can use route 2 or I-80/I-91 to
pick up any of the Boston directions part way through.
If you are coming from
New York either come via Connecticut or Massachusetts, or come through
From other places you should use a map and these directions to
figure something out yourself. Or you can
ask me about adding the ones you need.
- The simplest route from the Boston
area. Three roads (Routes 2, I-91, and VT 9) get you within 10 miles
of my house.
- A slightly shorter route and close to the one
I usually use. This is basically Route 2 to west of I-91 and then
some lesser roads up to Vermont.
- The somewhat more complex route using several
dirt back roads that's slightly shorter
than that. This is the route I use, except during peak mud season, and
when it's snowing (the back roads in Mass. are not well maintained)
when I follow the previous directions..
I've started writing directions from various places around Vermont.
From south western Vermont, follow the
Bennington directions. From elsewhere in
Vermont, you'll need to find your way to the junction of Vermont
routes 9 and 100 just east of Wilmington, then follow the end of
these directions from there.
