day 8

day 8

We had a relaxing morning getting up and heading to the General Store for breakfast. The French toast was tasty as well as the hash and eggs. MZ and a couple of others were there too and we started talking route info to get to Conway, New Hampshire. I'd been wanting to check out Whitehorse Gear for some time and Sue was shopping for some new gear.

We got going at some sensible hour like 11 and headed south on 12 to Woodstock and onto 4 through Qeuchee, nice touristy gorge to go over. Lost of evidence of the flooding all over the place, we saw bridges etc with debris 15 feet up, devastation, brings back memories of Igor.

where are we?



From there we headed generally north on 10 to go pick up route 188 which promised to be a lot of twisty fun. Who knew Dartmouth college was in Hanover? Pretty upscale looking town

We passed through plenty of rolling countryside and small farms, nice to see so much activity and what mostly appeared to be still working farms surrounded by old infrastructure




Once we started climbing the fall colours started to show too, pretty countryside




One town even boasted a rocket


After the sweet ride on 118 we stopped for gas in Lincoln.
