    After Salem, MA

    Will ride toward the Seabrook area then toward White Mtns.

    Will slowly make my way toward COOS county and then the 16 to Maine.

    Should take about five days or so.

    After Maine I will ride toward Gilsum, NH and visit a friend before VT.

    Just a rough draft.

    Does anyone know of any camp grounds on the way there and around Salem?

    Still over 50% chance of rain in Lexington for the hour.

    Not worth getting wet when it will be so close to freezing tonight.

    Will add up some numbers and get a rough draft for the next week.

    Taxes New Hampshire brags that it has no sales tax, no income tax, and no other “broad-based tax,” which meaning “no tax affecting everybody.”
    That sounds great and makes many idiots move here. After moving, we discover that the Machiavellis who run the government created many “little” taxes that affect “just a few” people. Here are little examples:
    There’s a hefty 8% tax on “restaurant meals, hotel rooms, and rented cars.” But that’s not called a “broad-based” tax, since it affects just tourists (or natives who act like tourists).
    There’s a huge “real-estate transfer” tax on buying a house and a huge “property” tax on using your house after you’ve bought it. But they aren’t considered “broad-based” taxes, since you can always live in an apartment instead. (Then your landlord has to pay the hidden 8% “room rental” tax; but that’s his problem, not yours.)
    There’s a huge tax on registering your car. But instead you can jog or use a bicycle or skates — or take a bus, if you don’t mind waiting several hours for the bus to show up. (In New Hampshire, search for a bus is like searching for a Puerto Rican: it requires sleuthing.)
    There’s also an “interest & dividends tax” (for people who earn lots of money from bank interest or stocks), a “business profits tax” (for businesses that make a lot of money), and a “telecommunications tax” (on your phone bill). But you can avoid them if you have no money, no business, and no phone, so they’re not called “broad-based” taxes.
    So in New Hampshire, you can “live free of taxes” just if you hide under a rock.





    Will stay under a rock.

    Warm day. But rainy.
    Awsome roads in this part of Maine.
    Pulled off road (south of Windham) for shelter and got a wifi hot spot
    Cloud band is like a paper clip. In two hours I should be good.

    Roads are real fun. Good for the big bore thumper. The lousey suspension and 21" tyre are not thatbig of an issue. I have never been on these roads so I am taking it easy. Not vanishing point riding, but taking it easy.
