Hi Folks,

So here we stand at the true beginning of the summer season, July 4th weekend. July 4th is a federal holiday that commemorates the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, 1776. While really a patriotic holiday, it has come more to symbolize the start of summer, baseball, barbecues, parades and a variety of other public and private events.For most of us living up here it hopefully signals the start of the summer tourist season.

If the weather is good, usually that means that we will have a good summer filled with people up here recreating and buying goods and services. If not good, it can set a precedent for that summer's season that have a detrimental effect on the economy. Of course this year on top of the pressure to have good weather for the long weekend, we also have the poor economy that can work to keep people at home. This year I have to agree with the local Chamber of Commerce who point out that we are still a much cheaper vacation destination that many other places. For folks coming from Massachusetts and the vicinity the White Mountains are only a tank of gas away! And for those who are into more outdoor activities we're a cheap date!

What's the point of this? Well just that if you are looking for place to spend some family time this summer, The Whites are a great place to come. A weekend or week-long climbing trip up here will cost a lot less that most other places you could go. And if the weather is rainy, or if your significant other doesn't climb, bike, canoe or kayak there sure is a lot of shopping to be done - with NO SALES TAX! It's kind of a win-win thing isn't it? [grin]

Have a great 4th, eat plenty of great food, enjoy your friends and family, drink responsibility and I hope to see you up here this summer.
