Back in Vermont

We crossed back into the United States at Derby Line Vermont. We had our passports checked and our van searched. It was a simple affair. As the customs officer was checking out our credentials, I peered through the window of the border checkpoint to see the large framed photos of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney on the wall. I chuckled to myself, recalling the exact same portraits on the wall of the border crossing that I saw while leaving Tijuana, Mexico earlier this year. I thought to myself that those photos wouldn’t be there much longer. 

We spent our last night of our roadtrip camping out in Barton, Vermont. Before settling down for the night, we had a meal at the Eastside Restaurant & Pub at the bottom of Lake Mephremagog in Newport. The last time we ate at Eastside was following the Jay Crossover leg of the Jay Challenge,  That was in 2005. After the 27 mile paddle from Magog, Quebec, I had to be helped out of my kayak. My legs were wobbly. We were on the lawn just outside the restaurant. I still remember the pain vividly!

We had breakfast on Tuesday morning at the Miss Lyndonville Diner in Lyndonville. This was another cool joint, but at the opposite end of the spectrum from Havana in Bar Harbor. Still, a wonderful place to eat. After breakfast, we were ready for the final leg of our journey. We made our usual final pit stop at the Putney Co-Op, then we were home two hours later. What a trip!

Not a bad way to cap the weekend. @patriots #nepatriots #patsgame #patriots 🏈 Two days of #crawfordnotch views sandwiched with @appalachianmountainclub meeting. Cycling on Rt. 302, #trailrunning on the Crawford Path, and Mount Willard. #newhampshire 🚴🏽🏃🏻⛰ Sites and sounds from Day 2 @gpgloucester #gpgloucester The fog was burning off by the end of the Cub Juniors 9-14 year old race.

#horstspikes #cyclocross #lifedeathcyclocross #horstengineering #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #madeinconnecticut #madeinnewengland #madeinusa 🇺🇸 It was great to see so many friends at today’s Western #Massachusetts Athletic Club Monroe (Dunbar Brook) Trail Race. We all ran the 2-Miler. We couldn’t stay long after the finish, but we did see Kelsey Allen win overall in the 10.5 Mile main event. Hooray! #trailrunning 🏃🏻 Before and after the Western #Massachusetts Athletic Club’s Monroe (Dunbar Brook) Trail Race in the #Berkshires I rode (very wet) over from Savoy Mountain State Forest where we camped last night. On the ride along the #DeerfieldRiver I checked out #ZoarGap and then we walked down to the river to see the Tooth. Sadly, the kayakers had already passed through. The foliage turned overnight. #trailrunning #cycling 🚴🏽🏃🏻⛰ #Cyclocross racing in the morning and downhill #mountainbiking @thundermountainbikepark in the afternoon. We got in two late afternoon runs on rental bikes and are pumped to return for more fun in the future. #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #thundermountainbikepark #berkshireeast 🚵‍♀️⛰ 30 kids in the 9-12 year old Race at the #mansfieldhollow #Cyclocross That’s just awesome! @the_ccap #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #crossspikes #crossisboss This image was from pregame, but approaching halftime @uconnfootball there aren’t many more fans than you see here. 35 (Memphis ) to 21 (UCONN) is a lot of points in 30 minutes of #football #uconn This morning I got to hear Warren Rustand, inspirational entrepreneur and fellow @ypoglobal member, speak at a #ypo Connecticut River Valley Chapter meeting. It was fitting that the event was @riverfrontrecapture and literally ON the #connecticutriver I walked from @horsteng via my favorite train bridge. The 10 minute trip back to the plant was ample time to reflect on the #leadership lessons that he shared with our group. @garyrome and I decided that we should memorialize our time with this dedicated athlete, by requesting that he join our photo. #horstengineering #business
