I totally agree with Jean about the pleasant surprises in NH.

To me, it always just, well, felt like home when I drove through it. I grew up 34 miles from NYC in NJ, in a cramped house, in a 2 sq mi town with 10-15k residents, depending on the year, and still, NH is much more me than NJ ever was... glad to hear that others are enjoying thier discoveries here as well...

dpenkalski:

I live about 10 miles from 6 Flags Great Adventure (far enough away I don't deal with the traffic often or the noise, but on a clear night I can still see the fireworks).  The bulk of what I've read about New Hampshire says that it's easy to find everything I love about NJ, and few of the things I hate about it.  I love a rural, small town character with the ammenities of a larger town at a reasonable distance.

I'm also a recent transplant, and I guess my two cents might be helpful to anyone either considering or planning on moving here...  I believe that you can probably find just about any lifestyle that you're looking for up here; you can live in the middle of a city, go to malls and movies, find great restaurants, and never stray from a frequently plowed road.  But I'm going to write about doing things the hard way.

We left a downtown DC apartment building, and moved into a town of less than 1,000 people.  We have a house and a barn, both in need of a lot of work, and I spend more time than I can describe carrying wood--wood to build with and wood to burn.  I have callouses, cuts, bruises, and scars.  And I do not remember how it feels to be unwilling to get my hands dirty. 

In short, I have never been happier.  Our work on our house has been noticed by our neighbors, and they have welcomed us warmly--in no small part, I'm sure, because they can see that we're willing to do.  We are being accepted as a part of our community--invited to participate in discussions and asked to help.  I can think of no better way to put down roots in this state.

We have been very lucky to land in this spot; a place where, when I rant about legalizing private stills at the local bar, I get the whole room nodding.  That's my way and this is my place; if you look around, you will find yours.

Thanks for an interesting post.

Those 'local' links give a much better impression of what it's like to be there than many tourism brochures.

Very good post, kater. That's how it is in NH. I ought to know, I've lived here 54 years.
Get your hands dirty. Join in with folks on discussions at the coffee shop or bar. It is amazing how many folks are sick of Gov intrusions on their lives.

Ah, that means you'd turned 21 within a year or so before the drinking age went to 18.  I hesitate to inquire annoyed you might have been.
I had been 18 a week and a half when it became legal for me to go into bars.  Didn't go much, as I was trying to save every dime to go to college somewhere else.
By the way, when did the alcohol sales times change?  When I was in NH in my teens, you could buy a six-pack at anyplace that sold beer 24 hours per day except between midnight Saturday and noon Sunday.  Nowadays 7-11 locks the beer up at 11:45pm.

I was in college in NY when I was 18. When I was 19 I could drink in ME. No big deal, to me.
I don't remember when they changed the hours. A long time ago.

I love a couple of years ago, when I was at the state house looking for John Babiarz. The guard asked if he could help me find something, and I told him who I was looking for. He said "Hmmm.. I'm not sure where he is. Did you ask the Governor?"

LOL.
