    Is that for a room in the main house, or one of authentic ďlodgesĒ? NY Glenn and Timmy might have to join forces.

    There was a time I drove business cars for a Vermont car service. Hauled numerous soap opera writers from Manhattan up and back there, took the owners to the airports, and even dropped off Carly Simon and her friend Diane Sawyer.

    The lodges truly are incredible, but not worth a nights stay, let alone the typical 3-4 day stay. Perhaps the 5-star chef was the closer.

    I did a lot of work there during the original rebuild, a lot of the stone and tile is mine and Laura used to chef there. We all learned to ski there in the 70's when it was Sononburg Ski Area, local kids could ski for a buck a day off the old Poma lift. Can't step on the property now.
    Silver Lake would be a cool place to stop in on Pete

    We never got above -3 all day. Its a little nippy but Andy and I got to terrorize a few lakes, starting to get some good ice now.
    Been a few years since I flew these straight skis. They are great performers, but suck around getting gas and getting it in the hangar.

    No skating rink with this much snow. I wondered about town issues as I was run off the lake 25 years ago after blasting my Jet Ski around the lake one March day right after ice out. They made a 10 HP ordinance after that. Route 12 VAST snowmobile trail runs right over the lake so I can't imagine they'd have much problem with a Cub or two. Someone's got to find out.

    Andrew and I are fueled ready to go. Might have to let it warm a bit. Silver lake looks good, it's 160 miles for us, not too bad. Would be closer for NY chaps? I'm good with most anything. The wad is good because you can get inside. Looks like the old general store in Barnard has some stuff to eat. WAD or Silver lake let's make the call. Looks like -15 tonight in Barnard. We will try to be onsite at 11.

    Which airports close have strait ski friendly gas pump?

    Cold and windy combat flying today. Beats sitting inside watching football

    I'll meet you guys up there about 11, someone text me if things change. If you all end up at the WAD I'll do a fly by.
    You should be able to get to the pump at Parlin Jim, although I haven't been there in a couple weeks.

    You can land at the WAD and get jug non-ethanol mogas from the store. Parlin to the south has space to land and taxi close, but hose might not reach without jugs. And, as odd as it may sound... it wouldn't surprise me if Lebanon would let you land in a median, and let the fuel truck come fuel you up from a taxiway. Could be wrong, but could always ask. They let me land on the median grass in the summer...

    Silver lake sounds good, I'm fueled and ready. Jim throw a fuel bag in back. Or stop at Twitches both ways?
    About 140 miles for me

    Yep found out 20 minutes ago. Good thing I spent the day putting on the skis. You are all welcome here or let me know if we are headed to Silver Lake I assume 11:30 or so. Jim you and Andy want to stop here I will get my fuel bags filled with non ethanol.
    please let me know the plan so we can plan for you.

    Jim posted above he's shooting for 11. If you can arrive early and pave the way with the locals by bringing them hot cookies, it may help?

    Just so you know, Silver lake is in a bit of hole. Route 12 from the north climbs up to the lake, but the other sides descend down to the lake.

    were sweating up here at -8. Lets talk on 122.75. If the plan changes to the WAD backup for some reason sing out. I even have a special new years surprise for all of you

    KRUT not looking too bad but cold
