Hey Blogosphere, can I sleep on your couch?

Hey, Blogosphere!

I'm getting ready for my big bike trip - from the 4th to the 16th of July, I'll be riding my bike from Syracuse, NY through the Adirondacks, Vermont, and New Hampshire to Portland, Maine!

Any chance you or anyone you know lives along the way and would like to put up (floor/couch/back yard) an exhausted, happy, and personable cyclist, who might have some adventures or misadventures to share, namely me? I can repay your kindness with postcards, beer, or fabulous knitwear... Get in touch if you do!

Specifically, I'm headed through the southern Adirondacks (Raquette & Blue Mountain Lakes) to Ticonderoga, then (depending on how things are going) either heading north up the west side of Lake Champlain, across by boat and through the Green Mountains in Vermont and New Hampshire, or more directly through VT/NH via Bread Loaf & Conway, then heading east thru Maine, coming to the coast around Damariscotta, then down the coast to Portland.

Any recommendations on must-sees along the way, or awesome ocean-y beaches on the Maine coast? Let me know! daniel dot yuhas at g mail dot com

Whew! I'm getting butterflies just thinking about it!

Shoot me a note if your around Plattsburgh. I'm out of town for two weeks until July 6.

Check out Lake Champlain Bikeways - I like the NY side going north better than the VT side. Don't miss the Champlain islands.

Thanks! Don't know if I'll make it as far north as Plattsburgh, but I'll let you know if I do!

Considering your navigation skills, this phred has a couch in S. FL for you.

I'm in the wrong direction for you! But if you come a-pedaling through Western NY sometime and stop in Corning, let us know! :-)
