THE HERRING ARE
THE HERRING ARE
The spawning season for herring is in full
gear as many waterways spanned by US Route 6 (6A) here in
Massachusetts are supporting a number of very active herring
This is one of our ancient natural traditions
so long an attraction to curious folk in these parts. Herring
and the blooming of daffodils coexist during this southern New
England rite of spring.

THE SPECIAL EVENT!
U S Route 6 Weekend Cruise to Provincetown
About this video
"The inaugural U.S. Route 6 Providence to Provincetown
Cruise Weekend on October 6 & 7 had exceptionally nice
autumn weather despite many weather forecasters
predicting gloom. Although that may have prevented some
from chancing a 118 mile cruise to PTown, over 200 did
show up at the Province Lands Visitor Center in
Provincetown to claim their commemorative dash plaques
provided courtesy of Factory Five Racing as well as a
signed farmable certificate of participation from Bob
Bramwell who was manning the PTown Rally Point with his
wife Linda assisted by Ron Churchill. Massachusetts U.S.
Route 6 Executive Director Don Doucette was blown away
by the response for this first time cruise event which
is attempting to place this beautiful stretch of highway
on every auto enthusiast’s annual event calendar. Author
Joe Hurley, who walked the entire length of Route 6 from
Provincetown to Long Beach California and his wife Pat
also made the cruise together, a first for them also,
autographed copies of his newly released book, “10
Million Steps on Route 6”. There was one glitch with the
Buzzards Bay RR Station Rally Point having to be
scratched at the last minute due to a double booking
issue, but Jeff Clark's West Barnstable RR Station Rally
Point and the John Remedis & Patti Lloyd Centerville
Visitor Center Rally Point coverage saved the day for
us. If you missed this year’s cruise, it will happen
again next year on the first weekend in October. And
remember, “You’ll Get Twice the Kicks on Route 6”."
Could this be Wellfleet the Bear?

Meet Don Doucette our Executive Director of the
Massachusetts U.S. Route 6 Tourist Association, a state division of the
As Executive Director, Don
Doucette brings his lifelong energies and interests to the fore. Don has
explored New England through the avocation of day tripping for many years.
Recently, Don along with wife Nancy, have visited all 351 incorporated
municipalities represented within the Bay State. Don has seen the many moods
of his native Commonwealth from various angles and it is no wonder that when
Don was enlightened recently with the existence of the U.S. Route 6 Tourist
Association that Don found a new opportunity for local exploration and
For Don, any section of Massachusetts U.S.
Route 6 is only a day trip away. And so, he and Nancy are presently
exploring and getting to know better their own Massachusetts U.S. Route 6.
As responsible neighbors, Don and Nancy are realizing that Massachusetts
U.S. 6 is "in their backyard"
and as a result, Don invites you all over for a visit. He wishes to share
the many resources of Massachusetts U.S. Route 6 with those who are so
inclined. Don hopes for a local organized core group â€“ a Massachusetts
Division of the National U.S. Route 6 Tourist Association. Please get
involved through your memberships and bring your energies, talents and
experiences to the total U.S. Route 6 preservation movement â€“ old U.S.
Route 6, the Grand Army of the Republic Highway. It's worth preserving and
worth promoting as a valuable National cultural and economic resource.
The U.S. Route 6
Tourist Association is a Not-for-profit IRS 501 (c) (3)
"Public Charity" Corporation
dedicated to the economic development and cultural preservation of
inner cities, small towns and rural communities located along all
