I was in New Hampshire last week. *Live Free or Die* is the state motto. You can read about it above. I’ve already blogged once today, but I need to just comment on this lack of rules, boundaries, laws. I’m from California. We have laws regarding most everything, which I think is good, due to the fact that we sort of push the edge of the envelope, and think WE know what’s best.
My gf was telling me that they sometimes ride to Massachusetts to take off their motorcycle helmets? Could be just me, but isn’t that hilarious? To ride to a nearby state just to break the rules. (I can’t remember if that’s the state)
I do have to say one thing though. They seem to have caught on with the No Smoking thing, so it’s not really Live Free or Die, it’s just live free, then die. But don’t smoke here or here. Usually when I travel, I forget that everyone smokes. That the non-smoking room in the hotel, is usually *smelly*, in that someone is smoking next door. However, in New Hampshire, I didn’t get that. Even though you CAN smoke there.
They call New Hampshire the FREE state. I loved it.
