Experiences: Hiking With Dog

Black Lab, Crawford Path, Lake In The Clouds, New Hampshire

Alright Dog, I understand it must be difficult at times that you can’t communicate with me.  I understand there are probably times when you want to say, “You know what Mike, I’m getting a little tired; perhaps this is enough hiking for one day?”  But please understand that being forced to watch you dramatically act out your own death every 60 seconds is bit overkill:

A Little Dramatic, No?

Final Hours, Memorial Bridge Demolition; Portsmouth, NH

Construction crews are working on final preparations for the demolition of the iconic Memorial Bridge in downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire.  The original demolition was planned for this evening before midnight, but it has been delayed until Tuesday, February 7th and will take place during daylight.

The two million-pound truss lift will be disconnected and floated down the Piscataqua River on the pictured barge.  The $81.4 million bridge replacement project is expected to be completed in the summer of 2013.

Built in 1923, the Memorial Bridge was dedicated as a World War I memorial, and spans between Portsmouth, New Hampshire and Kittery, Maine.

2011 Boston-Portsmouth Air Show Pictures; Portsmouth, NH

A collection of pictures from this weekend’s Boston-Portsmouth Air Show on Pease Airforce Base in Portsmouth, NH:

U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds

“The world-renowned U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds will make a rare appearance in New Hampshire this summer.  Pushing their F-16 Fighting Falcons to the limit in a display of speed, skill, power and precision, the Thunderbirds will thrill you with their legendary show.

The Thunderbirds are the air demonstration squadron of the U.S. Air Force, based at Nellis AFB in Las Vegas, Nevada. The squadron tours the United States and much of the world, performing aerobatic formation and solo flying in specially-marked USAF jet aircraft.

Officers serve a two-year assignment with the squadron, while enlisted personnel serve three to four. Replacements must be trained for about half of the team each year, providing a constant mix of experience. The squadron performs no more than 88 air demonstrations each year and has never canceled a demonstration due to maintenance difficulty.

This year’s team is led by Lt Col Case Cunningham, flying the No. 1 jet, leading all air demonstrations and commanding the 120-person squadron. Colonel Cunningham hails from Argyle, Texas.”
