    Default Hello from Cleveland, OH!

    Greetings from the flat lands of Ohio! I heard of your website on a couple other forums.

    My wife, daughter and I are in the process of planning our next great summer radventure. As a family we decided we'd like to do a little whale watching this year and will be heading up to the Bay of Fundy mid June. I'm too cheap to fly, so we're going to load into the family Grand Cherokee and have a good old classic American Road Trip! Along the way, we'll do some exploring... I've been through NE in the winter on ski trips, but never in the summer. We're looking forward to the White Mountains in particular and will take a southern route home along the coast.

    Just wanted to pop in and let y'all know I'd be lurking for a couple months. We're always on the lookout for local restaurant, landmark and brewery ideas (My wife once directed us 45 minutes out of the way to find the best breakfast joint in Davenport, Iowa on the way home from Wyoming).

    Thanks in advance for destination suggestions!

    Sugar Hill NH, Pollys Pancake House is def a spot I would go to and while you're there go to Sunset Hill Rd there is a great shop on the street the sugar hill sampler as well as beautiful views of the mountains. The sunset hill house is on the rd as well and has a golf course if you're interested in that too.

    Cool

    Hello and welcome!
    Traction, articulation, and gearing make a good off-road rig. Just a big lift, wide mud tires, and a winch simply do not ;)

    Agent Smith beat me to the Drew Carey song...but welcome!

    You also had me at the word "brewery." If you're into hoppy beers, definitely make a detour through mid-Vermont to The Alchemist to pick up the infamous Heady Topper (as well as some of their other beers which are in my opinion better but not as sought after), and Hill Farmstead while you're up in the area. Or if youre not into the hops, Kelsen Brewing in Derry NH has one of my favorite brown ales "Paradigm", and there are a few other breweries in that immediate area that I have yet to try. And if you're headed through Portland, ME you definitely have to stop at Allagash for a tour (and probably to stock up once you've sampled them), and there are 3 other lesser known breweries in the same plaza that aren't bad either!

    And as a ZJ owner I have to ask, what generation of Grand Cherokee?

    Thanks for the tips... Iím a big fan of heady topper and Iíve heard good things about allagash. Will probably have to fly my daughter back to make room for more beer! Lol.

    I drive a 2016 Laredo. I know itís not the best platform for hardcore wheeling, but itíll go up the bumpy stuff pretty well and it makes for a nice ride when we eat up freeway miles from the Midwest. My goal is to use some of the Chief products (skids and bumper guards mostly) and then work in a drawer system.
