Today we would be visiting Jerry. He lives in Berlin, New Hampshire (pronounce BURlun) and has a camp on Cedar Pond north of there. We first met him in 1978 after we aborted a ride up Mount Washington due to rear brake failure. He was riding his own GL1000 (licence plate OBABY) when he found us and took us to a friend of his who bled the brake line. We never did get up the mountain but try to visit Jerry whenever we are in these parts. He once rode all the way to Sudbury to pay us a visit as well.
We decided that we wanted to join Ol' Phart for breakfast at the Circle Restaurant in Epsom tomorrow morning, so we booked the room here for another night and unhooked the trailer. With just the truck, we headed north on I-93 to Franconia Notch where we exited the freeway and followed US 3, also known as the Danial Webster Highway, north.
A brief note about Franconia Notch. It is an awesome place. Spectacular rock formations even though the Old Man Of The Mountain is no more.
At the hotel, Sandy sorted the clean clothes between our overnight bags and the long term suitcases before hitting the sack, while I got a few blog entries done and met Roger the night clerk while checking on the trailer. Then I turned in as well.
