My son said you can go now- so take a hike I did. - 08/26/11 06:20 PM
I knew this day would come - from the moment my son was born, he was going to take wing and fly someday. Sure he's less that two hours away but college is different from camp , or a week away this time he's 18 and has choices I will not be consulted about. ..He's always been on the run but I knew where he was going. And when he would be back. After moving him in to his dorm I asked - do you need anything else...he said the words I have dreaded all summer. No I'm all set you (27 comments)

Sunset - Sunrise 10 hours in the White Mountains of New Hampshire - 08/21/11 09:05 AM
Saturday night Sunset over the white Mountains of New Hampshire. It's taken years to open up the five acre field behind my home in Woodstock NH and install a one acre pond. The results of my efforts have given my this view. Saturday Night Sundown - Mount Lafayette -Little Haystack and Lincoln.
Beautiful sunset last night 7:40 on an August night as summer is slipping away quickly. One of my Cats decided I needed to be awake at 5:30 this morning, but when I saw the glow through my bedroom window I figured ...hell I'm up time for (11 comments)
Slope side Short Sale at Loon Mt. Lincoln New Hampshire. - 08/19/11 02:15 PM
White Mountain Short sale – Walking distance to Loon Mt. This is not a ski to your door location but its pretty darn close to the trails. Many of the earliest built condominiums offer the best locations, developers of the sites in close proximity to the ski lifts and downhill terrain had great success in the late 1970’s. Prices rose quickly and some got caught in a negative equity position. This premium location listing received many of the upgrades required to stay current with comfort and modern conveniences. It features top of the line wool Berber carpets, stainless steel appliances, nice (10 comments)
Kayaking the Pemi River with my son - 08/18/11 02:06 PM
The White Mountains are beautiful from a kayak, paddling down a quiet river. I'm just a week away from sending my son off to his freshman year of college. Although he'll be less than two hours away...this single father will miss his only child more than a two hour drive would indicate. So today the plan was to kayak the Pemigewasset, and chat a bit as we paddled along our route. Conor and I have sit on-top style boats...when you get in to the rapids you can tighten leg straps to keep you in. Other wise you are exposed to (18 comments)
Improving Finances After Completing Short Sale or Foreclosure - 08/16/11 10:43 AM
Short sales are not an exact science. In fact my research indicates any transaction where the mortgage holder(s) get less than the full pay off is a short sale. Yet there are all different "bank policies" that must guide each deal. That's right - no universal guideline to follow...it is more like a tennis match. You serve to the other side, they volley -you return. But when you land outside of the lines, you must start all over again and hope the next line judge awards you the points. One last Item that Bill Gassett makes very clear in his well (4 comments)
A little cold front rolled over the warm river and fogged right up tonight
It was a little nicer last night at sunset. But even a lame sunset is nice in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

Sunset in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. - 08/06/11 01:24 PM
Sunset in the White mountains of New Hampshire...It signals the end of a day and the start of a night. But it really is more than that, it is something to marvel at. When the sun goes down behind the mountains and clouds are just right to collect the colors it can be truly spectacular. Some may be thrilled with the sunset over the ocean, others enjoy it across the flat plains and farmers fields...for me there is nothing better than a mountain sunset. Enjoy the colors and textures of the hills and trees, breath it in and be happy to (20 comments)
Played the Donald Ross course at Mount Washington Hotel at Bretton Woods in New Hampshire today.
The 18-hole Mount Washington Course was originally designed by legendary Scottish Architect Donald Ross and was completed in 1915.
After an extensive restoration by noted golf architect Brian Silva, the Mount Washington Course reopened on August 1, 2008 for play. The Par 72 course includes bunkers crafted in a classic flair and infinite varieties of recovery shots in the closely cropped areas around the putting greens. The par-five 11th hole and the par-three 5th hole feature stunning views of the Omni Mount Washington Resort and surrounding (13 comments)
In my last post I talked about the difference between a market value sale Vs. a Short sale in New Hampshire. I hope you feel the way I do, in that a lower price is not the only thing that should be seen as a good value.
Now let’s review the Short sale Vs. The Foreclosure: from a buyer’s and sellers point of view.
Seller comparison first: Impact on Credit score: A short sale will be reported as “Paid as Negotiated” and will affect your credit score by 50 points (+/-). A foreclosure can affect your credit (14 comments)
