Yes you are correct Ulysses Burke is way too far, it takes hours and hours, maybe days to get even near there. You would be much better off to ride somewhere closer to your cave. If I were you I would try an area maybe 20-30 miles away from home, that would cut your driving time to say oh 12 hours or so. Enjoy the winter.

At what point will the mods of this board wake up and ban this troll fool ulysses? He's only been banned 2-3 times before here - why not again?

ulysses - shouldn't you be busy dispensing your seasoned advice over at EpicSki or somewhere else with no standards of discourse?

Let's see. It's 60 miles from exit 32 of I-91 at Lincoln, N.H. to Burke Mtn Ski area according to the state maps put out by N.H. and Vt. dated '05. The Maximum Speed limit in N.H. on the Interstate system is 65 m.p.h. where said highway is 4-lane divided highways of four or more lanes. It is 25 mph in any business or urban residential district, 35 mph in any rural residential district and 55 in other locations except as specially provided. The law in Vt. would be similar. Of the 61 miles between the two ski areas, 8 of it lies in Vt. with speed limits of 55, 35, and 25. This stretch of road contains one stop sign and two villages. The road through Franconia notch is divided by only two lanes in sections as I remember. In addition road conditions due to inclement weather often exist which limit speeds through the notch. Futhermore traffic through the notch and on the state roads in Vt. in question can be slow due to the inability to pass farm and industrial vehicles. It would be physically impossible to drive from Lincoln, N.H. to Burke Mtn. ski resort in an hour if you comply with the laws of the states of Vt. and N.H. Any claim otherwise would be an advocacy of criminal activity.

Remember though, the regular speed limit in both states is precedented by the prima-facia speed limit. That is the speed in which motorists feel it is safe to travel at. This speed may be above or below the posted speed limit as weather conditions, conditions of the motorist and vehicle him or her is operating are all factors in the prima facia speed limit. Depending upon the authorities in either state, and all villages along the route the usual accepted prima facia speed limit is approximately five (5) miles per hour above the posted speed limit. I have never seen nor ever met anyone who hasn't exercised his or her right to utilize the prima facia speed limit over the posted speed limit.

Furthermore, in going to college and living in Lyndonville, VT for two years so far, I have never experienced a working agricultural establishment along the route to Burke Mountain nor a vehicle of any sort that would fit that description along said route. The speed limit through Lyndonville is 35 mph, the speed limit through East Burke is 30 mph. The speed limit between the two towns is 50 mph. The Burke Mountain Access road begins as 30 mph, but then increases to 40 mph. Even when the trip is map quested it still only takes 1 hour to get from Loon Mountain to East Burke assuming that all speed limits are heeded.

The one thing I hate is the drive home. I prabably should take an extra night at a motel before heading back, but I don't. However, I may start doing that next year. Whatever, I drink beer while driving home and often down two six packs of it. I drive at an average mph of 60, too. I've been doing this all my life and haven't had an accident yet.

Well, maybe you-know-who stopped for a few of those famous brewskis along the way. That would add to the driving time!

Hey bud, I've gotten from Lyndon college to past were loon is to drop a friend off in a little over 25 minutes.... how that make ya feel now?
go cry to the government and drive your tractor there too, man you piss me off. I'm not going to weave and hit people like you assume... if its crowded no ones going to play bumper derby. If you dont like the highways, walk- you'll make less traffic for me as i drive to resorts where I work to make sure your snow is ok!

Only 2 Six Packs?!
Swiftie, you are really a light-weight for such a LONG drive!
I'd think that it would take a Case or at least 4 quarts of the Bull! (pun intended!)
