Many have taken a 'hike about' in our fair State - known for the Appalachian Trail and Presidential Range up in the 'North Woods'. For something a bit closer to home when I have a couple of hours on my hands, I prefer the more gentle rolling hills around the Merrimack Valley area (southern) part of the State. Rainy days are a perfect time to step out - few make the effort preferring the comfort of a warm fire place and cup of 'joe' to wait the storm.
There are a few other NH notables who have walked in our woods you might have heard of - Robert Frost, E.E. Cummings and J.D.Salinger. If poets aren't your taste, how about the first man in space - Alan Shepard! And who doesn't like a little Red Sox Nation legend like Charlton 'Pudge' Fisk.
We are also very mad for our winter season and who better that the ultimate bad boy of ski racing - Bode Miller. Or perhaps the entertainment industry is more your thing - SNL's Seth Meyer, Sarah Silverman and our own 'Happy Gilmore' - Adam Sandler.
But there is one dude who stands above the rest in my book, but you won't see him hitting the trails any time soon but what the heck, he still rocks our world - Steven Tyler of Aerosmith and 'Walk this Way'.
My inspiration comes in many forms ;)
