In traveling around the back roads of Vermont, one would find a vehicle that rolled its last and then was pushed off to the side and became a means of “directions” to Elberts or Fothingills farm. If it wasn’t for such markers, we’d have flatlanders wandering around long after the cows came in for milkin’.
“You go down this here hill to the bottom and at the crossroads turn right and go past the big maple. Turn at the first left and when you see the old tractor sitting ‘long side the road, it’s the second white, not the first, mind ya, the second white house past that tractor.”Otter Creek Road Addison Vermont 03/17/2009
