Howdy from the Berkshires

As we live in the mountains -- and I'm getting older -- we don't ride much anymore...but I have put a lot of miles under my wheels, so the interest is still there.

Regardless, howdy to you all from the Berkshires region of New England. Come on, you know the old JT song from Sweet Baby James, right? ...Now the First of December was covered with snow ... And so was the Turnpike from Stockbridge to Boston ... Lord, the Berkshires seemed dream-like on account of that frostin' ... With ten miles behind me and ten thousand more to go...
Well, we live on the Stockbridge end of the turnpike -- out in the sticks -- on the highest point of I-90...

Greetings from further east in Western Mass. Used to ride the steep hills of North Shore Long Island. Now retired in New England. The trails are flat in Easthampton!

We used to have two family members in Easthampton, but now we're down to one. Her house is really close to where Holysmoke, Southampton and Easthampton converge, and it's definitely hilly out that way...but I do know of areas there, a bit closer to Northampton, that are pretty tame.
