The rugged New Hampshire wilderness demands a certain type of lifestyle, and there are some things that people in the Granite State need to avoid at all costs. From things out of our control to things that we can easily miss, there are the things that everyone should avoid in New Hampshire.
1. Snow, in April.
We know to expect a lot of the white stuff here in New Hampshire, but once April rolls around we just want spring.
2. Running out of liquor.
Sure, we can buy wine and beer at the gas station, but when you need a stiff drink those New Hampshire Liquor stores can be few and far between.
3. Small town scandal.
If you grew up in small-town New Hampshire you know that it doesn’t take much to become the center of attention when everyone knows everyone else’s business.
4. Syrup that didn’t come from a tree.
Nothing compares to fresh New England Maple Syrup.
Avoiding these suckers is practically our state pastime.
6. Cars without four-wheel drive.
You’d be better off with a horse.
7. I-93 north on a race weekend. Or on a Friday afternoon in the summer.
If you plan on getting anywhere quickly.
8. Grocery shopping before a blizzard, or before a Patriots game.
Unless you like tacking an extra hour onto your shopping trip.
9. Working outside New Hampshire.
Don’t work for any of those tax-hungry states that surround us.
10. Shoveling the driveway.
Save your back and hire a plow.
Why are they always clogging up our state anyway?
12. People from Massachusetts
13. White clothes.
They’re just not meant for our rough and tumble state.
14. The indoors.
Why be inside, when you can be outside?
15. Trying to explain the granite state to someone who has never visited.
They just won’t understand.
