Visiting NH after Porcfest
« on: June 09, 2009, 12:18:26 pm »

Can you, FSP forum friends, provide local insight and advice on fun things to see and do in northern NH this summer?  Feel free to respond via PM.

I am planning a sightseeing trip to NH with my wife and 3 teenage children for a few days in mid July.  It will be a side trip on our summer vacation to upstate NY.  Our visit to NH is a step in the process of becoming full FSP participants.  Our focus will probably be camping in northern NH, day hikes, fishing, canoeing and hopefully solitude.  We will drive and be self-sufficient regarding camping gear and everything else. 

Unfortunately, Porcfest cannot be worked into our schedule this year.   

Thanks,
John

Maybe you should check out lake Winnipesaukee.  I lived there for a little while and it's a nice area, big vacation spot lots of stuff to do.

for solitude ... you can camp off of the appilachain trail on the side of a mountain
up north I liked the area just north of Berlin and Milan, the river there is very nice ... but the connecticut lakes are nice too
stay north of the notches for solitude or on top of the mountains

if you want to visit some of us you can venture south to grafton ... the Grafton Welcome Wagon will be open after porcfest. You can camp here and have hot showers, play games with others and hike Mt. Cardigan or other nearby spots. You can fish and canoe in town here also ... we are usually the only ones on tewksberry pond, and grafton pond is even prettier.

You are welcome to either stay in my guest house for a few nights or camp on the property. I live in Lisbon (near Littleton). This area is a hub of many White Mountain and North Country activities. PM me if interested.

I am grateful to have found this group.  Thanks everyone for you help and generous hospitality. 

I am looking forward to visiting NH, but is frustrating to miss meeting you at Porc Fest by only a couple of weeks.

Perhaps you can make Burning Porcupine?
