  Click on the Summer 1999 section to see the beginning of the New Hampshire primary in the Great North Woods Region. You'll also find an interesting camp, an iron horse and a couple of houses moving among other interesting things. Scroll below to see new stories and links as I add them. 



You'll find the Great North Woods web site and another of my sites, www.allroutes.to weaving together.

Some of this is for technical reasons, much because it makes sense for some parts of the sites to be linked together.

They are on different servers at opposite ends of the country. One of the reasons for this is redundancy in the event of communication problems.




 




If there are storms or other natural disasters, Y2K problems, etc., that interrupt one server, try the other.

We'll try to get info about the area out as long as we can if things are going haywire with phone lines, electricity, etc.

This summer we were able to get pictures and info on what was causing a power outage before power was restored by using out laptop and deep cycle battery bank.



This winter could be interesting as there will be a solar cycle peak, Y2K and who knows what else coming together.


www.allroutes.to navigates by auto routes within and beyond the Great North Woods region of northern New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine.

For instance, you can see what is on routes two or three in the region and beyond.

Both sites are constantly being improved and expanded, come back often to check them out!

When You visit the Great North Woods, see if you can find this critter!



Top Referring Sites

I'm starting this section to recognize the top referring site of the week. The top one of the month will remain here in the archives.

Many search engines actually refer far more, but the way the counter works it would be very time consuming to figure it out.

Top referring site so far this month:

October 23, 1999 update:

North of the notches we had some high winds and now rain. Many of the leaves are now on the ground. This year's foliage season up here is pretty much done with.

There are still a few areas with colorful leaves on the trees if you look around.

This is one of my favorite seasons, one you might like to take advantage of. With the leaves gone you cam now see a greater distance through the woods.

As you drive around the back roads in New England, notice how many stone walls you can see. These were once around the edges of farmers' fields. You'll be amazed how much of the northeast was once "clearcut" and cleared of stumps and stones to make farm land.


October 20, 1999 UPDATE: Trees at higher elevations are losing their leaves, north of Bethlehem it's still pretty colorful. It's still at peak color in some of the valleys of the Great North Woods! Don't be stopped by what you see in the notches. In some areas north of the notches the leaves are still on the trees and as bright as can be.

October 8, 1999 UPDATE: Right now and until the leaves fall from the trees is PEAK in the Great North Woods! Don't be stopped by what you see in the notches. North of the notches the leaves are still on the trees and as bright as can be. The leaves have been blown off ny the high winds in Franconia Notch, just above the notch and beyond the foliage is magnificent!

There was snow on the top of Mount Lafayette and a few other peaks which makes for a great background for foliage pictures.

There are still a few pockets of green, but not much. Now's the time folks!
