    Uncle Fester, with all these recommendations, you may just want to schedule a week up there.

    I never want to see a day
    That's over forty degrees
    I'd rather have it thirty,
    Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!

    Please note the number of times SpyBoy mentions places to eat. Need I say more? I am sure he has pictures of food at each place too.

    Going up the gondola at Cannon Mt can be fun for folks too.

    And what's wrong with that?

    I like pictures with my restaurant recommendations!

    It would be interesting to take his cell phone and see what percentage of photos are of food. My guess is it could be 85-90%.

    Actually, some nice "food panos" taken from the center of the table would be nice...

    All this talk of food reminded me of a little place i like to stop on RT 84 in CT, it's right on the border of CT and mass before you hit Sturbridge.

    It's called book and breakfast, a small diner that has walls of books, the deal is you can take one if you want, all old donated books. Really great atmosphere and food too, lots of bird feeders out of every big picture window so there's always a nice view. Not particularly near anything special besides Sturbridge, but worth stopping if you're passing through.

    I have seen the sign for the place as I drove by many times - but have never stopped. I might have to do that if I pass by in the daytime someday.

    Come on now, part of a weekend getaway is the food!

    Fall crisp air, the colors, apple cider donuts (yes, I LOVE those). Last year I drove 2 hours over to Stowe, VT (ok I think it's really in Waterbury Center) to go to the one orchard one Route 100 (can't think of the name of it).

    I used to go every fall when I lived in Vermont, then moved away (TX, FL, etc). So last year was the first time I had been there since '99.
