Winter Fun in NH

It’s been a while since we posted here on the blog, but we wanted everyone to know that we are still alive and well, and just because we’re not traveling right now doesn’t mean we have given up our crazy outdoor lifestyle.  We are fortunate to live in an area with vast recreational resources at our doorstep and right now the snow conditions are perfect for all sorts of winter fun.

WHOOOSH! Is that the sound of air leaking from your tube?

You know, you don’t have to be 12 years old to enjoy sledding.  Get out there and play in the snow whatever your age.

Just up the hill from our house is a farm with a bunch of open, yet hilly, fields.  The owners of the farm have been most generous in allowing us to play in their fields. On Sunny days after a good snow, half the neighborhood is up there.

The Downside of sledding…or is it the Upside?

Seriously, with snow like we have now, you’re really missing some great fun if you’re not out there playing.  A cheap sled, a modest hill, and a 12 year old still residing somewhere inside is all it takes.

If you can get there before the plow, even a road will do.

When the snow is Really Really Good, there’s Telemark skiing in the woods.

Always wear helmet and goggles in the woods.

If you are luck enough to be in the woods, You qre lucky enough.

  1. So glad you are out playing in the snow..What fun is that!! hahaha You guys take care.enjoy
    the weather Linda xoxoxox Mom is doing great for a 90 yr old!!

  2. Good to see you’ve survived (and happily it seems) this brutal winter we’ve had. We awoke to snow on the ground here in beautiful Asheville NC this morning! Any chance you’ll get down to our area this year? We’re hoping to do a 2-month camping outing in Australia Sept-Oct (not the TC but a rented campervan).

  3. Wondered what you were up to this winter. We certainly had enough snow to enjoy but a nerve injury in my back has kept me limited. Doing much better & looking forward to warmer weather. Glad you are both well enough to enjoy our beautiful but cold winter.

  5. Sounds like a great plan, good luck. Keeping up a blog is tedious at times, but well worth it when you realize how much people enjoy sharing your travels with you. We often refer to the blog to revisit past trips, like a digital scrapbook.
