Some of you have over the years made comments to the effect of "Why New Hampshire?".

In addition to some of the best lake boating in the world and a really nice sea coast and wonderful mountains and ski areas we have other incentives to live here.

1. New Hampshire

2012 Quality of Life Points: 298 out of 350
2011 Quality of Life Rank: 2








Quality of life is solid across the board in the Granite State. Thepopulation is among the healthiest, in part because of the quality ofthe environment. Want a little more civilization? Boston is just overthe border, offering New Hampshire residents the benefits of the bigcity without the hassles. Crime in New Hampshire is among the lowest inthe country.

Heard is would have ranked #1 in "Quality of Life", but there's some wild Native dude with a passion for 'Studes and Ferrari's always tearing up the highways.

Could have heard wrong.

Why would you want to live in New Hampshire when you could move one state over and be represented by the coolest man in the Senate?

Really, we had a guy some 8 miles down the state highway i live on that had a small (in a standard rough sawn but A/Ced barn building) that made some electronic a"widgets for the fed. This was some 20 years or more ago before cell phones being common so we used CB radio. He had a FIA Formula 2 Grand Prix type racer, a March I think with a Coventry Climax FPF
The most popular 1600 cc engine was the Cosworth (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cosworth) FVA, the sixteen-valve head on a four-cylinder Cortina (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Cortina) block that was effectively the "proof of concept" for the legendary DFV. The 1967 FVA gave 220 bhp (160 kW; 220 PS) at 9,000 rpm. Other units also appeared, including a four-cylinder BMW (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BMW) and a V6 Dino (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferrari_Dino_engine)Ferrari (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferrari). The engine for the 1960 0up to 65 car was missing so he found and put a larger FPF 2.5 L F1
engine in it.
the FPF was developed from the FVAs. Anyway we had a 26 mile loop from his house to her to Warner to Coontecook across the dam and back up to Henniker and then onto 114 (our road) to home. We'd spot and watch for "Les Gendarmes". We had some dune buggy and rallye lights on it and we'd get set for the run just at dawn and he'd try to better his last time each time. Great fun, on some of the straighter sections based on RPM tell tale he had to be pushing over 165 mph easy.

Great fun to hear him go by and revving into the distance.

I am looking for a GT Hawk to restore with twin Paxton Superchargers, but right now am running the Supercharged Jaguar and a similarly charged Chevy Tahoe.:D:DY>Y>:d

Seems like a lot of writers live or have lived in Hanover, NH. I've always wanted to go there.

Bernie Sanders is definitely the coolest guy in the Senate. By far. I'd vote for him for Prez if he ever ran, sure.
