I had no idea it was there, either, until I stumbled out of the woods into it last year. Anyone who's ridden the NH classic southern loop has been all around it.

That's cuz it's not a town...it's a village within a town.

I've amended "town" to "village" in the clue. Now somebody use google and go get this thing!

Does the display say what kind of tank it is? It appears to be an M60 Patton series. That would be unusual as a display. They remained in use from the 60's until the early 90's. I was hand-receipted for four of the later M60A3: to the tune of $7,000,000. A shame its gotten so rusty, though.

Workin on it. Gotta let the roads warm up a bit first...it's a tad slippery this a.m. Looks like we've got some reasonable weather in the short range forecast...so I'll get on it as soon as possible.

Added bonus

Walk up to the ledge and look to your right. Find this crack beside the NH state shaped stone and there will be a ziplock bag which has a nice surprise within. (as long as someone didn't see me and steal it) p.s. Don't eat lunch before going.
