DCinCT heads to the White Mts of NH...things that make you go hmmm...Sat..the 12th

that time of year...been doing Columbus Week riding vacation for around a dozen or so years...stay at a nice resort...Village of Loon...



at the base of the Kanc...spend the week enjoying the foilage show and searching for new roads to explore. Last few years, the wife who now rides with me, has come to appreciate why I look forward so much to this vacation. This year she has her best friend joining us so her riding will be limited to probably one outing with me...her loss...shame...

be leaving tomorrow...early of course...ususally meet a few here from the northeast in NH for lunch, afterward we enjoy a ride led by Pete, this year the lunch will be done on my way home, saturday, the 12th and unfortunately Pete will have to just settle for lunch for obvious reasons...another shame...

now looking ahead to the weather forecast shows hi's of 50's pretty much the norm for the week...possibility of rain here and there...have been luckier in the past with warmer temps and while able to dress for the colder temps, thank you Gerbings...will be more concerned and focused on falling wet leaves scattering thruout the roads. Last years trip which normally has this



unfortunately had to be delayed till late October and had me leaving the mc home as this



decided to come early to the area...

...so not going to complain about some wet leaves of colder temps...looking forward, will be taking pictures and my useless mindless dribble to add to the weeks posting. Time to start packing. Till tomorrow.

Whats the big hurry...slow down and enjoy the ride!

Go for it, dude.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

Dennis, would you mind if I moved this thread to the "Stories from the Road" sub-forum? It'll stay around longer that way than if it stays in General Motorcycle Discussion, IMHO.

Have a *great* trip!!

saturday...oct 5.....

and so it begins...but before I do, first things first...add a little info to the title of this thread just because...

also a word to the wise and perhaps someone new to my thread viewing, anyone reading any of my posts on any trip I take will be sadly disappointed if they are expecting to see beautiful landscape, foilage turning colors, etc...want to see that ...google New England in the fall...you'll find what you are expecting to see here...one has to consider the source with my threads and learn to expect the unexpected...

enough of that.... lets get started...

first pit stop finds me still in Ct heading north and have to make a u-turn to get this







both moto guzzi's...must be a select riding club

late start has me anticipating getting to Lincoln,Nh by dark so its pretty much, ride, look and unless its really pic worthy, lets not tempt fate...

great day to ride...70's, clear and traffic riding friendly, at the 44 mile marker north of the Mass/NH line on on rt 93, I begin to see occasional shades in the landscaping...bout time, nothing spectacular, will save those pic stops for later in the week...

10 miles further north, in need of a bladder empty stop and a refill of my coffee mug, I take the Laconia exit where I come across this



now for all the women out there wondering what to get for their someone special this xmas...at that mileage, it should still be sitting where it now sits...unfortunately guys, considering the percentage of women who still find any interest in anything I post considering my reference to the other gender, lets just say it was a good try...

15 miles outside of Lincoln darkness replaces daylight, about what I expected, reach my destination and head to my unit where my wife and her best friend are awaiting my arrival...good day...great ride....till tomorrow gang.

Whats the big hurry...slow down and enjoy the ride!
