I've been registered for the event for a while, I just got the hotel res settled.  I decided on a LongTrail "condo" unit, since that would guarantee me a fridge. Gotta consider the beer supply, dontchaknow :)  I chose it over the LiftLine lodge room, which sounded like a more traditional hotel room.  She mentioned they only have one "option" left at the Black Bear.  I would also like to add there were different prices for each option.  The LiftLine being the cheapest, $59 a night.

This is a re-post but for those making their room reservations, the Stratton site plan map (attached) shows each of the hotels located very close together. Looks like you could throw a rock from one spot and hit any of the available hotels. -JEP-

Having done some Googlesnooping, you'd better be throwing towards the Black Bear Lodge from the other sites.  It's downhill.  There's going to be a bit more walking at this STAR than any other STAR I've been too.  Not complaining, just preparing.

When I made a reservation I asked some questions and found the breakfast we get included with our rooms is in the Black Bear lodge, and I'm sure the bulk of any other organized activities including meetings, seminars, banquet would be there as well. So I booked a room there rather than the slightly cheaper option at the Lift Line, to try and minimize that walking (though I could use it and really don't mind, more about the time factor).

I'm really looking forward to riding some in NE, adding a few more states to the list I've ridden in and seeing many old friends.

For those looking for lodging in Black Bear, I just canceled my reservation. Since Nancy's not going this time, I'm rooming with another member. Don't know if there's a wait list for Black Bear but if not, you can probably pick that room up now.

I'm in. All set (at least getting approved time off work), and I'm already practically foaming at the mouth. My first STAR and so looking forward to it, and riding some new territory. Can't wait to meet some new friends and ride, ride, ride. Riding up with my brother Steve and a couple other hooligans, er members, and having two great days doing that.

Just got back from Vermont to check out routes. Its so beautiful up there!  IF you like history you must do the Fort Ticonderoga route. You can spend the day there looking at all the history there. Gardens, fort and museum. Worth the entrance fee.


Also went to Equinox Mountain. WOW!!!! is all I can say. Entrance fee but worth the view and the twisty roads....incredible!
Lunch route is great too!


Roads are good from winter which you never know for you people who don't know what winter is..LOL
Great time at lodge a well.


Look forward to seeing everyone there!

Since I'm taking the long and winding route to Vermont (afterwards coming home too), I'm planning on leaving about a week in advance. That means I've got about 2 1/2 weeks before I need to blast off. Departure time is getting here in a hurry!
