    • The majority of these were heard on Railroad Ave. in Keene either just before, during, or after the Pumpkinfest 2012. We began to feel self-conscious at times as crowds passed by and commented when we inside the Tramper. The Friday night party crowd was perhaps the funniest.

  1. Good stuff! Love the “accents”.

    Get that motor running, or work on a Plan B. Hurricane Sandy will be here the beginning of next week with strong winds, rain/snow…being called a “Perfect Nor’easter”.

  2. Thanks Doug. We’ve chosen a place, now all we can do is trust ’em. Bug ’em just a little, and appeal to their greater sense of decency. I’ve offered to work there for a few days to lower the cost. This won’t stop us, but may shorten the trip at the other end by a month or two.

  3. Doug isn’t kidding about theNor’easter. Rain and winds predicted in Rosendale from Sunday thru Thursday. If the 4runner won’t be ready by Saturday, you may want to rent a car or find a friend to drive you the 5 hours to Baltimore until it is ready.

  4. Who knew you guys were such great writers, such great journalists?! These blogs could be printed, unedited, in serialized portions in some national magazine. Really! You need a literary agent.
