Who knows what it means?...

Now add one from your area that some of us may not know...

I give up! What does it mean?

'Crosslots' is just that...usually a trodden path that literally goes 'across lots' as opposed to a town byway, lane or road...

Just for giggles I had put it into a google search and looked on in the dictionary and the very few references I could find on google all had to do with Vermont and New Hampshire...I was surprised that something so familiar to me would not be common to others...

My Mom and my Sister have a 'crosslots' path that has been used constantly for 40+ years...I was always hunting my way home from school in the fall 'crosslots'...I had friends 'over on the other road' where a trudge 'crosslots' was one mile, but to do it by roads was nearer to 5...

Sure, that's an easy one.
Do you know what 'cultch' is?

I had to look it up...New one on me...Which meaning is the one you were thinking of?

#3 is the one that comes closest. To me, cultch is stuff that's not worth keeping but too good to throw away. So you keep it anyway, just in case you ever might need it. I have lots of cultch around, especially down cellar.

Toadsuck days
Don't know how it originated but the city of Conway Arkansas has a festival each year by that name.

OK...'Crosslots' is just that...usually a trodden path that literally goes 'across lots' as opposed to a town byway, lane or road...

Now...If you tell me 'Toadsuck Days' are as literal in their meaning...I will have to beg off and stay up here...

Crosslots sounds close to our term of Cartway. Some folks have cartways that connect properties and will walk or ride 4 wheelers to and fro.
