Overview

Your round-trip ticket to the wildest, wackiest, most outrageous people, places, and things the Granite State has to offer!

Discover a rehab clinic whose patients have been "loved to pieces”; a museum dedicated to outboard motors; and the 1804 grave of a soldier’s amputated leg.

Meet the state’s Official Gull Harasser (Ayuh, it’s a government job); a man who made 2,850 consecutive ascents of Mount Monadnock; and a forensic scientist who crafted detailed dollhouse-size re-creations of real-life crime scenes.

Learn where to go to watch the nation’s largest snowmobile drag race on grass and over water; a wrecker rodeo; and the Great Pumpkin Regatta.

Whether you’re a native New Hampshirite or a recent transplant, author Eric Jones will have you laughing out loud as he introduces you to the neighbors you never knew you had and takes you to places you never knew existed—right in your own backyard.
