Well, I can finally post about something related to my very first post. A couple of years ago I decided to hike the 4000 'footers of New Hamshire's White Mountains. Today I found the time to get up one of these big bastards. I climbed to the top of Mount Moosilauke, the western most 4000 Footer and also one of the most southern.
The day started off with leaving the house earlier than planned, so I arrived at the Moosilauke Ravine Lodge at 8:45 am.
I've had some unfinished business. I posted on my birthday about what I was wearing when I received the highest of compliments on what I was wearing that day. When I got home that day I took some pictures of my outfit but never posted them. I wasn't crazy about how they came out and also I wasn't sure if I wanted to be the kind of guy who posts pictures of himself in his outfits on his blog. But I can't just list the clothes I was wearing that day, that would be like trying tell you what a Picasso looks like.
Not so in Nantucket. Things just didn't jump out at us. Restaurants, shopping, activities...nothing. Thing were expensive. The Whaling museum admission was 17 dollars and we passed. The worst part was that the island was full of drunk preppy douchbags. All the rich girls wore aviators and colored wayfarers. It was funny watching girls in high heels crossing cobblestone streets. There were a couple of bars that were packed with drunk twenty-somethings. Parts of downtown Nantucket seemed like a college campus.
I did buy a pair of Nantucket Reds at Murray's Toggery Shop. Probably the only good thing to come out of our trip. I could have bought them online but it was nice to be in the shop. Murray's had a great selection of seersucker critter shorts.
We were booked for the 8:30 pm high speed ferry to leave but we were ready to go at 4 pm. We caught the next ferry at 6:00 and got the hell out of there. Let go to the tape...
