I'm curious asabarron, how do you feel about the Hotel and its attempts to lure the corporate world? Having somewhat of an interest in it with your family and all, do you feel it pulls away from its original purpose as a vacation destination, or can it succeed in attracting both families and corporations? I too enjoy it very much. We stayed there several times (when it was owned by people from NH) and my dad worked there in the 80's in their accounting department and I got to go with him in the summer and had a great time running around on occasion while with him.
"LIVE FREE OR DIE...DEATH IS NOT THE WORST OF ALL EVILS." Gen. John Stark. "by reason of much foule weather and Extreme Bad Woods to travel in..." From the letter of my Great Uncle, Samuel Willard (accompanied by my grandfather Henry), to Governor Dummer on August 16, 1725, explaining the reason for his return, being instructed to "range all the country", of the Wawobadenik (White Mountains) July 19-August 16, 1725. I am a 13th generation New Englander and proud of it.
