Who knew this was a thing?!  Most ski mountains have turned into year round resorts, and Gunstock is no exception.  They have a giant zip line course, a smaller adventure zip line and obstacle course, segway tours, mountain top yoga, mountain biking trails, hiking trails, a pond with paddle boards and other items, even a mountain coaster.  Simply put, it's a fun place to be anytime of year. The zip line is amazing and I had done it in the past.  That morning while the wife was doing the mountain top yoga, she found out they were holding a moon-lit nighttime zip line run.  Limited to one group of 20 people. We got the last spots. It wasn't just a…

Another weekend has come and gone, had some friends up end decided to hop on the boat and head down to Alton to see the sights.  They had a sea side craft fair and antique boat show. Too bad the weather was screaming rain and thundershowers all day.  We got a little wet early on and did our best to enjoy the break in the rain.  This of course meant that many of the babied antique boats were not out - and rightfully so! Apparently if you want to be successful at your local craft fair you need to sell fudge!  That was by far the most popular tent! Sorry, no photos of the antique boats.  I parked right near…

What a weekend!  Started up by Scuba diving on Friday.  Saturday took the Mrs and I on an almost 7 mile hike up two mountains, so it was time to take it easy on Sunday and just float in the water! We started the day by heading down to Sleeper island to see the Sleeper Island Castle.  The Castle has a few different names due to the people that built it or lived in it over the years (been there for 100 years) but most locals tend to call it "Sleeper's Castle" now. The problem down there, I quickly found out, was that across the channel between Sleepers Island and shore, is that there is a small cove / sand…

For us, there is no better way to spend our time than hanging around the lake.   We had some new doors installed and they needed to be painted.  Some sort of a dark brownish grey.  Looks almost black in the photo, but they're not.  Matches our screen/storm doors.   I had to run back to the office - I replaced a few door knobs upstairs so they would match downstairs.  I only got around to doing three of them, and with two left to do, I let Cat (the Mrs) do the other two.  I told her she would fumble a bit but would figure it out.  This is the story I was retold when I got back up…

Sunday the family decided it would be a good day to go for a hike.  By family I mean my wife.  I'm up for about anything and our daughter, well, she allows us to drag her along.  It started with a sour face but got better as the hike went on. Today we decided to hike up Belknap mountain. It is rated an Easy hike by the Family Hike page found here:  http://nhfamilyhikes.com/hikes.php?hike=Belknap%20Mountain But I call BS on that.   Is the trail challenging?  No.  I've been on hikes where I need both hands and feet.  This was a nice trail but the trail was straight up!  I was wiped out by the end. It's roughly a 2.0 mile hike.  Everywhere states…
