Unfortunately, driving out of NH isn't free.
 
2012-11-03 01:55:07 PM  
Anything that's fun costs at least $8.
 
2012-11-03 01:55:42 PM  
Surfing, really?

Come to New Hampshire for the fall surfing.

So this list just basically recommends lookin' at stuff and surfing.

The All-Powerful Atheismo: Unfortunately, driving out of NH isn't free.


1$ toll for no state income tax is quite nice

but ya...that list..."look at foliage....while driving'. Pretty much sums up the whole northeast.
 
2012-11-03 01:57:36 PM  
running with the mooses?

//meese? how do you say "pack of moose"?
 
2012-11-03 01:58:43 PM  
Look at trees
go on trails through the trees
look at animals by the trees
look at trees again
go into the ocean.
 
2012-11-03 01:59:54 PM  
"Owning" property in New Hampshire (or anywhere)? Not so free.
 
2012-11-03 02:01:06 PM  
The whole state is past peak leaf peeping time. You're too late if you're reading this now. Unless you're just a year early.

/old news is old?

5 really cheap things to do in New Hampshire.

1. Go to Derby Line and illegally cross the border into Canada.
2. Score weed in Keene
3. Carry a pistol in a holster like a cowboy.
4. Frat party at Dartmouth
5. Hire an Irish illegal alien.
 
2012-11-03 02:02:17 PM  
1. Don't go to New Hampshire.

2. Isn't New Hampshire like 20 miles by 30 miles; so, if you don't drive like an old person; you'll get out quickly.

I was surprised to see today's date on the site. This is way late. One month ago would be the time to go to NH.

2012-11-03 02:10:18 PM  
More stuff
6. Complain about "Massholes," while selling them $30 bottles of syrup.
7 One word, "Granitapalozza"
8. Find your snow chains

It is, but did you really think someone with a name of "Obamadidcoke" worries about facts before rushing to post?
 
2012-11-03 02:11:09 PM  
6. Blink
 
2012-11-03 02:12:35 PM  
Where is the #1 reason to visit?

#1 Liquor stores

NH liquor stores do not charge an admission fee.

That's kind of the joke.
Of course one of the best driving games in NH is to figure out if you are in NH or VT.

Grew up in SW Noo Hampsha', and the Cathedral of the Pines is a decent time waster even if you aren't a spiritual person. More times than not during the week there's no services going on and it's wide ass open with virtually no one around. Pick a rock, sit on it, pack a bowl and enjoy the view.

obamadidcoke: "Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it. Not smack though



It wasn't the veracity of the information behind the name, but rather the fact that the information was significant enough to compel you to choose it as a user name. Oscar Wilde sucked a few dicks, yet, I don't feel the need to turn that into a self-identifying moniker. So either you are obsessed with the idea that Obama did drugs or you are a troll by nature. "W" did drugs, you didn't make that your name. How come?

NH has about five feet of coastline (and it's a toll road to get there), but they sure as hell want you to know it.

6. Complain about "Massholes," while selling them $30 bottles of syrup.

Complain about "Massholes" whole commuting to MA to work.

FTA Day use and camping fees are not charged at 26 camping sites, trailheads, ponds and picnic areas in the White Mountain National Forest.

Of course parking at these trail heads is $3 a day.

I'll be up there next weekend picking off a few 4,000 footers with my son
 
2012-11-03 02:49:20 PM  
1. Live free.
2. Die.

Better list.

Bush never publicly admitted that he did cocaine Obama did.

I really don't care, hell I'd do coke if the time and the opportunity present themselves.

How many billboards can you see along the highway?

Buy homemade fudge at the place (combined gas station/general store) in Lincoln. Bonus - you might see a bear wandering around across the street.

$2, and they rob most of it from people who don't live there and wouldn't pay no steenkin income tax anyway.

How do you get bored driving through a state that small?


/lives in a rectangular state

They haven't paid their phonebills in 300 years...

Born, raised, reside, and will die in NH. Anything one could want short of a massive desert is within reach. Mountains, ocean, big lakes, rivers, all easily accessible and all with low risk in regard to natural disasters. If that wasn't enough,,, we get to be Pats, Sox, and Celtic fans.

You almost make it sound good....if I didn't already live in Maine.

Cashews
Maple Syrup
Drive into a moose.

I frequently head over to New Hampshire for rock climbing (Rumney especially).

John Buck 41: You almost make it sound good....if I didn't already live in Maine.


Heh,,, If I wasn't in NH I'd live in Maine. I just did some work in Jonesport about six monthes ago. My landlord has a vacation home up there. He said it's the biggest lobster town in the world. His vacation home over looks the harbor. I asked how I could bill him as it's a six or seven hour ride from Manchester and he said just take care of me and I'll take care of you. When I got up there it was like 2 farking hours of work patching a waterstain in the ceiling. He then said let's go for a walk and get some dinner. We walked up to a pier about 100' from his house and he bought a 5 gallon bucket of lobster freshly trapped to go with some fillet mignon he had picked up and popped a bottle of 50 year scotch. That was my last trip to Maine. Needless to say I didn't charge him. I don't charge people for vacations.

Well,, I really try to do the right thing,,, but I guess I should also mention I was about 2 grand behind in the rent. So yeah,,, my landlords pretty farking saintly compared to me.

As I'm sitting in my friend's living room in fabulous Manch Vegas, I'm getting a kick....

obamadidcoke: Of course one of the best driving games in NH is to figure out if you are in NH or VT.


Simple: Did you cross the Connecticut? No? Well you're still in New Hampshire. I can understand if it were Maine or Massachusetts, but not Vermont.

\done almost everything in this state except go to Pittsburg, and that was a simple ran-outta-time sorta day

I bet you haven't broke into construction sites like the old Amoskeage bank or CMC and buried bottles of Jenkins vodka in walls 8 stories high back in the 80's on orange microdot.

Maine's about 300m to the east of me if I want to go back. Which I should do somewhat more often...at least to visit my friends up in the Brunswick area.

Despite your error, I see you are up on our local news Link

and this... Link 

Pro-tip: If you are in the town of Derby Line, do not use your GPS. You could enter illegally as many as 3 times.

That would assume I *WANT* to be anywhere near CMC. Hell, my friend's house is on the West Side and she'll still only go to CMC to park there during snow bans.

\our closest one-you-can't-do-anymore was that on the weekend of her 30th we went to a Monarchs playoff game, a Fisher Cats-Sea Dogs game, and the Wolves season opener. And ate at Hanover Street Chop House.
