    No comment on if they will be installing border crossing on the Long Trail once you cross into and out off Canada. The bushwack over to Big Jay could be interesting since you would likely be crossing the border at a non-designated crossing.

    And here I thought that the Balsams revival was the April fools joke all along.

    It does seem to have some Pythonesque aspects at this point. Its starting to resemble a Norwegian Blue with Les acting as the shopkeeper. For the locals sake lets hope its just part of the tangled history of a future project.

    The governor signed the TIF bill so its in the developers hands again. Coos County now has to approve the package but two out of three Coos county commissioners are supporters of the project.

    Northern Pass just had their day in court and it could be six months before the court rules so the initial phase of the development will need to obtain financing without a NP backstop. Given its May, I do not see where there will be an significant construction effort this summer or fall so the NP timing may line up with a 2020 groundbreaking.
