There's a back way thru N. conway if the traffic is bad. most likely it will be fine however..

ok cool. another thing... I'm accustomed to DC traffic, so what my Mainer friend considers bad may be smooth sailing by my standards. Besides, I'll be out for a leisurely ride, not a pedal to the metal deathmatch with the asphalt

Yeah, it's not DC traffic . There is approx 3-5 miles that will be potentially slow going depending on the whims of the shopping gods... Hurricane mtn road is worth it however!

Dang, I wish our plans for this year's TDI Fest could have culminated. We like back roads and seeing the local "stuff" that's unique of the area. Two years ago, with some very minor exceptions, we drove back roads (non-Interstate) all the way to Bethel, Maine. And, we pretty much did the same thing leaving the Fest on an excursion to New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.

Three weeks ago, we did a two day trip south of St. Louis using all back roads with the exception of a few miles on I-55 (craigslist Vanagon shopping).

Find me when you are there or PM me for number exchange. I am down to play some disc and one of the things I am looking forward to. On the Sunday River website it says its $5 for the 9 holes, which it is what it is. I play regularly, but we only have 1 course on the cape. We will just make it as it is only open until the 6th.

Disc Golf is open 10:00AM - 4:00PM Thursdays through Sundays from June 25 through September 6, then Fridays through Sundays from September 11 through October 11. *Please note that the course will also be closed for the Tough Mountain Challenge on July 25, 2015.

I can't say it enough: if you are driving at dawn, dusk or night, please keep your eyes peeled for moose. I had one come out in front of me yesterday on the bike and it was ok but still went to pucker factor 11 nonetheless!

Moose don't reflect or show up like deer and if you see one, assume another is lurking as well. They seem to be out in droves lately.

Parallel to the roadway gives you a chance... Perpendicular, not so much!

Even parallel can be dangerous. I know someone who followed a moose that turned around and rammed their truck. Not a good time since they're unpredictable at best.

FYI to be careful re: moose! We saw one on the side of the Jordan access rd. Last night after trivia. He looked poised to mess up some unsuspecting person's day!
