Earguy: I've never been up there for "leaf season" before, so I'm heading up NEXT week to stay at a friend's cabin. no way I'd go on Columbus day weekend.
sno man: Earguy: I've never been up there for "leaf season" before, so I'm heading up NEXT week to stay at a friend's cabin. no way I'd go on Columbus day weekend.They might be about done by then. Around these parts with the weird spring we had, some of the trees are already done, others haven't started to change. It's not the best year for the full show, but even in a bad year it's worth a drive in the country at this time of year!
jimmyego: Are the leaves changing colour really worth sitting in hours of traffic to see? When I think 3 day weekend, I can't say "go watch a tree" has ever featured highly on my list of things I want to do. In fact I think it's ranked just below "lose a testicle".
downstairs: Can someone explain what's so special about New Hampshire this time of year... especially this weekend? I totally get being into the changing colors of the trees and all, but isn't pretty much everything from Western Pennsylvania/Carolinas all the way up to Maine pretty well forrested? Other than big cities? Why New Hampshire specifically?
RexTalionis: Stay out of CT, leaf peepers!
Mayhem of the Black Underclass: Massholes on Everett Turnpike who don't know about Exit 11. It opens up to three lanes just before, shuts down to 2 just after, then the oncoming traffic has to merge, all in about 0.2 miles, they think the highway is getting larger, so they spread out, then it chokes up because it's a merge and a merge, it's more bad civic planning than it is the peepers.Really I had no problems until the choke up at exit 11. It caused a 10 minute slowdown (The horror) so my 25mi/30min commute took 40 minutes (the horror).Come on up, pay our stupid rooms and meals tax, buy some liquor from the state liquor store, make purchases at the new outlet mall. Whatever.
vodka: Are these "Leafers" of a criminal element or something? Gangs? Bringing down local property values and stealing from your economy? Help me understand why I should hate them.
Mikeyworld: Hey! while ya'll are up there, could ya get me some NH maple syrup, #2? ya wouldn't believe the price of it here in Washington State
Richard Saunders: When I get the urge to watch something change colors, fall to the ground and die, I just choke a hooker.
ZackDanger: For all the residents in CT, NY, and to some extend RI, the best place to see large rolling forests of beautiful reds, oranges and yellows in NH.The aforementioned states are either too urban or don't have the expanses of forest.These people pick NH because it is still commercialized enough in the southern portions for the tourists to not feel like they are going to die from exposure.
FloydA: Oh thank god! I was afraid "Leafers" were conspiracy theorists claiming Obama played Hockey for Toronto.
