    Great pictures! Thanks for getting some of my rig, @Jacks!

    I started a thread on Expedition Portal (crediting Exploring New Hampshire). Here's what I have so far:

    Last weekend I completed a great trip with my local club, Exploring New Hampshire. We ran an overland route that started at the Customs and Border Protection Office at the Canadian Border of New Hampshire. The route ended at the sea coast at the southern border.


    My day started early. I was on a business trip and returned on the red eye from California Wednesday night into Thursday morning. I got into Boston at 5:45.





    I headed home, took a nap and started packing. I was packed and ready in the late afternoon. I had dinner with the family, then headed over to my friend Rob's house to pick him up. We packed his stuff into the Land Cruiser and hit the road around 7:30pm.





    We drove 4 hours till we were very close to the border and stayed our first night in a little cabin in Pittsburg New Hampshire:





    The next morning, we found fuel, met up with our group (11 rigs from Exploring NH) and started heading south. The route followed logging roads south from the border:








    After a few hours of driving, we stopped at a wide spot in the logging road network. There was a small trail head there. We headed down the trail.





    After hiking less than a mile, the trail opened up to a beautiful waterfall:



    It had the classic, crystal clear New England river flowing over tannin stained rocks:








    We soaked up the sun for a while and headed back. We had a lot more miles to cover. We traveled many more miles on the logging roads till we hit pavement. We ran across some small towns and enjoyed some covered bridges along the way:



    Shortly after that, we parked for some lunch. Our spot was scenic, with a great view of another waterfall.








    Our lunch was Rob's famous "giant sandwich" which consisted of 3 packs of random meats, 1 pack of cheese, 2 bags of potato chips and mustard. It was good.





    We had to hurry to eat, though. Our next stop was to drive the climb up Mt. Washington, the tallest peak in the Presidential Range.


    More to come...

    Thank you to everyone who came on this trip, it was a wonderful group of people, everyone got along great and we all helped one another. The weather was just amazing, you could not ask for a better weekend. Day times were 75 and sunny, overnight lows around 50. Clear blue skies and a 105 mile visibility from atop Mt Washington. Here are some photos I was able to get:

    DAY 0:

    Heading to Pittsburg, NH, just 2 fools and a dog. We met Paul in Concord and caravanned North, reaching camp around 5pm. We setup camp, cooked dinner, and relaxed around the fire.




    DAY 1:

    We met everyone at the border station, made our introductions, and hit the road. First stop was a very remote waterfall located along the NH logging roads. It is a state posted area and had a short walk down.



    As stated, we then travelled many more miles of logging roads before hitting pavement, we made a quick stop at LL Cote's store in Errol for some supplies, and ventured to our next falls in Colebrook for lunch. These falls offered a hike to the top, which a few people made.




    After packing away lunch we started our stretch of road toward Mount Washington. The incredible part after watching the weather forecast for the Mt all day, was the 3/16 posted visibility from the peak due to heavy clouds, changed to 105 mile visibility within 20 minutes of us reaching the mountain. The views were incredible. The mountain had actually received a few inches of snow during the week, so you could still see patches that had not melted.




    After getting back off the mountain, our next stop was the Glenn Ellis falls, a 60 foot plunge type waterfall, where you can walk down to the base.




    Next we made our way to camp in North Conway for the night, which was along the Saco river.




    DAY 2:

    After waking up and heading out, we headed across the Kancamagus highway "The Kanc", which is a 34 mile highway of scenic vistas. Again, weather could not be beat.



    After a nice long drive through the mountains south, we began our Class 6 road travel. Everyone did great and we had no major issues.



    We then ended in Newport NH for the night where we camped.




    DAY 3:

    Making our way East towards the coast, we jumped right back on the Class 6's. We went through our normal water crossing area, but the water was a bit higher than normal. Everyone was instructed on fording the water and we pushed through. Water came high up on the doors but only for a moment.



    After exiting the trails we all aired up, some people said goodbyes, and a few of us headed to the coast to finish the route. Temps around 80 cooled to around 70 at the water. We then made a stop for a great meal at The Old Salt in Hampton, before departing home.




    Until next time...

    I can't follow the link. Not sure if it's my phone or maybe privacy settings on Facebook. I think the easiest way to upload videos is YouTube and then put the link here. Not sure though. I'd love to get the video of my truck doing the water crossing. Mainly cause I won't be doing it again til I have a snorkel, that actually had me scared for a minute haha.

    Darn, I guess I will have to learn how to post videos to YouTube. I don't have video of your water crossing, only Havier's.
