A southern day trip – Welcome to Hooksett

When we first established roots in Bow, we kept hearing about this far away land known as Hooksett. Sure, it bordered Bow, which borders Concord, but going beyond those imaginary constraints had always been a bit of a no-no. Look how long it took us to make our way into Bow. But since we thought of this day trip issue series earlier this year – the first of which brought us to Henniker in February – we’ve had our eye on Hooksett. How...

We drove a crazy vehicle at HK Powersports

No roof, no doors – no problem. That was the theme of the day when we went to HK Powersports in Hooksett last week. The store is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, and they invited us to come by and check out all the big-boy toys they get to play with – I mean sell – every day. “We sell fun,” owner Jim Whaley said as we poked around the indoor showroom, which was full of motorcycles, dirt bikes, ATVs, personal watercraft and...

We found lots of food options in Hooksett

One of our favorite parts about exploring a new place is the food. There’s just something about traveling around a town you’ve never visited in search of a great local spot to eat. And when in Hooksett, you’ll have no problem finding some great eateries – no matter what you’re in the mood for. There are plenty of chain restaurant options, and that’s never a bad thing, but on this adventure, we were in the mood for something new and...

Welcome to the 2016 Insider Summer Olympics

With the Summer Olympics set to kick off Friday with the opening ceremonies in Rio de Janeiro, we thought it would be a great idea to take part. No, we’re not taking an all-expenses-paid trip to provide weekly updates in the Insider for the XXXI Olympiad, and it’s safe to say that we didn’t qualify for any of the events because that kind of info would have been plastered all over these pages for weeks. Instead, like we did way back in...

Just imagine all that gold hanging around Tim’s neck

Sure, we could have done a pentathlon or a decathlon to decide the inaugural winner of the Insider Summer Olympics, but that wouldn’t really fit with our style. So we battled our way through a septathlon (that’s seven events) to declare the grand champion of meaningless games around here. While we expected it to be close – or at least much closer – it turned out to be a bit of a one-sided affair. But don’t worry, Jon will have a...
