I have already secured the Commissioner of Corrections post. I think he wants someone on the inside if he winds up in jail. I could see that they get a cushy job like the laundry or stamping license plates!

Alton Bay is closed for the season. I made it up for the last day on Saturday. Apparently you get a certificate if you make the last day.

Here's my video of another trip up earlier this year. I saw one other RV who left before I could say hi.

Default Maybe next weekend...

We were at SFM today for lunch, the rumour mill has it that Alton Bay may open next weekend. Temps were well below zero a couple of nights last week in NH.

...and Moultonboro has fuel at $4 per gallon right now!

It is a shame that $4 is considered a GOOD price!

After having fun in Maine at Bald Mountain Andy and I went to Alton Bay, NH for dessert. Were we the first RVs land on B18 in 2015?
