    I used to go every fall when I lived in Vermont, then moved away (TX, FL, etc). So last year was the first time I had been there since '99.

    You're right about the food getaways Kirk. We will often times see a place showcased on the Food Network and schedule a trip around going there. One of the last trips was from Philly to Pittsburgh for a Primanti Bros sandwich. The distance may sound crazy to some, but when you lay your teeth into one of those sandwiches, distance doesn't matter.

    I never want to see a day
    That's over forty degrees
    I'd rather have it thirty,
    Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!

    Default Highland Games

    The Highland games at Loon Mountain on the Kanc in Lincoln. This event is awesome unless you hate bagpipes, are nervous around men in kilts and can't stomach haggis, then I'd say, "Just stay home!"

    Same goes for those that are nervous around haggis and can't stomach men in kilts.

    I can't stand bagpipes. One song, off in the distance is ok, but when you're close to them, it's freakin' loud and song and song, blah!

    I love the ribs at Delaney's Hole in the Wall, White Mt. Highway in No. Conway. And I loved the prime rib at Merlino's steak house in No. Conway, though the last two times I've been there it seems to have gone down hill a little.

    Nothing is better then Autumn in New England, we stayed in Mystic last weekend and I was excited because it already started to feel like fall. I can't wait to go up to No. Conway in mid. October for my Birthday again. My sister and I do an annual trip up for a girls get away.

    I don't think we'll go up Mt. Washington this time, but would I be able to leave a care package for Marty and the Observers at the weather center or maybe at base of the Auto Road?

    Kathy,

    I have left things at the Discovery Center in N Conway and they have been taken to the summit for me. I was concerned whether the large boxes of microwave popcorn would make it but I have been told they were delivered.

    Hollis, in southern NH, has an apple festival right on the square in town. I went to it with my sister and her family a few years ago (before I moved to NH). Talk about food... it was like apple crisp and vanilla ice cream with a cider chaser. YUM!!!!

    Here's a link!

    Last fall there was a apple cider place Kirk posted pictures of just west of Meredith, NH - and if I remember correctly, there was a tour day of different places in NH. Kirk, can you update us on that?
