Some photos from Burlington VT, Pittsburg NH, and Mt Washington. You know you're is sight of Canada when the menu has fries, onion rings, and poutine.

William Least Heat Moon says “the open road is a beckoning, a strangeness, a place where a man can lose himself.”

I agreed to the beckoning but I haven’t lost myself on the road yet. I’d like to though.

I spent the last 5 days driving my Ural. around New Hampshire and Vermont. Got right next to Canada, saw border patrol pickups on side roads leading in to the wood. I didn’t go over the border. It is open but COVID rules and tests made it a small hassle which I wasn’t willing to go through.

Instead I drove up Mount Washington, drove some amazing backroads, drove some great but horrible dirt roads.

Sawyer Highway, NH 118 from Wentworth to North Woodstock & NH 145 from Pittsburg to Colebrook – both are AAA+++ roads!!

Route 145 crosses the 45th Parallel. It is 3 1/2 hours from my house and the marker says it’s halfway to the North Pole. So, if I drove 3 1/2 hours more, I’d get to meet Santa?

I been trying to do the picture thing with the historical markers. Working on every one in the state but haven't got much done this year. Stuck at about 25% of them.
