NO! No more threads and answers!

Have you not noticed that there are only a small handful of people on the NH forum -- and you've gotten answers from all of us in your multiple threads??!!

Here:

Martha's vineyard day one. Nantucket, day one too.

Go to P-Town that night.

Go to Boston next morning, via Newport -- you must see the mansions!!

Concord and Lexington on the Paul Revere horseback tour company. take a Segway back from Concord. Stay the night. Walk Freedom trail in morning. Vistit North End. East at Legal Seafood, Giacomo's, get Mike's Pastry -- all for lunch.

Go to Portsmouth. Visit Strawberry banke. Have dinner. Go to Kittery. Shop. Go to Kennebunkport, Boothbay Harbor, Bar Harbor, Camden. Sleep in your car.

Go hike Mt. Kahtadin. Knife's Edge trail. Take your camera. Oops, go back, you forgot Acadia National Park. Catch a sunrise there, first in the East.

Go to Mt. Washington. Drive up the auto road, drive around mountain, take the Cog Railroad. Walk over to Lake of the Clouds Hut. Sleep there. Shop in North conway. Ride the train. Drive the Kancamagus Highway. Try to do it in daylight so you'll see everything. Please do not stop in Lincoln!

Ride the tram to the summit of Cannon. Visit the Flume, the Basin. the Otter rocks, Sabbady Falls. Eat dinner at the McDonalds by Exit 32. Have breakfast at Polly's.

Go home.

I recommend a trip to the Isles of Shoals and then wander around the town.

For eating, cross the river to Kittery and go to Warrens Lobster House or go to Great Bay and go to Newick's for a more casual atmosphere.
