Yes, I think it's very important to be a manly man. But I'd gladly be as effeminate as possible in exchange for year-round warm weather.

There are days as the winter's wearing off when you almost shout out in joy at the extremely warm weather, and it's still below freezing. Egads.

Re: New Hampshire

this whole thread is amusing to me.

I arrived in Kotzebue, Alaska for the construction season on May 1. Last weekend it snowed. The ice only broke up on the ocean Memorial Day weekend.

40F is balmy....

Well, around here a "heated pool" is in the low 80s. Anything under 75 is a harsh contrast and some of those older aquarobics customers might complain to the management.

Where do you think Steve got the idea for the skit?!? School's out now, so most of the surfers are teens or parents teaching younger kids. We older guys are still out there enjoying the incredible bikini-clad high-school hardbodies perfecting our laid-back style among the rippers & shredders, but we're in the definite minority. Things will improve in September. Tuesday mornings will be back to the shiftworkers, part-timers, ERs, & unemployed, and the median age will return to the 40s.

Yeah, we have a couple regulars in their 60s and one who's at least in his 70s. It's hard to tell with some of the ol' stoners veteran longboarders.

Re: New Hampshire

I live in Southwestern NH in the Peterborough ("Our Town") area. Called the "Quiet Corner" or the Currier & Ives section of NH. Very pretty and still rural. Only one traffic light in Peterborough yet it has a lot of culture. A lot of outdoor activities- hiking, kayaking, fishing, biking, etc. All within minutes of your house. The growing season is short - two weeks off Mass on both ends. The natives think the winters are bad here but no where near bad as upstate NY where I grew up

Re: New Hampshire

Based on this thread, I think Nords has the right idea more than anyone who's living in New Hampshire. It does seem like a nice place, but boy, you need a lot of extra niceness to overcome the difference in climate!
