    Reminder - Berlin ATV Festival on this weekend

    The north country of NH will be awash in ATVs this weekend. The event is centered around Jericho Lake State Park on RT 110 but Berlin and Gorham will both be busy. Unless you need to head into Gorham, take Pinkham B road to avoid it. Motels, campgrounds and restaurants will be full up all the way to the Conway area. It usually gets busy Thursday night with peak traffic in Friday night.

    If someone wants to check out the events, they tend to be family friendly but definitely country western redneck, camo tends to prevail.
    Sir..I take offense on call them "Redneck..country western etc" and I assume you have much deeper darker thoughts on what you think about ATV'rs.. Many aren't into country or rednecked.

    Why couldn't you of just mentioned about the festival and left it at that.. you seem to have narrow minded views on people and their affairs concerning ATV's..probably Snowmobiles and many other facets of this diverse life on this planet I have realized.

    No offense intended. Since you object to the characterization I will gladly remove it. Of course since you quoted me, the characterization will remain in the thread.

    BTW that is what PMs are for

    I'm not offended by the word, but it is likely inaccurate, given the southern connotations of the term. The term hillbilly would also not be accurate as that tend to be more southern Appalachian. I think the safest term to use might be 'genuinely unpretentious'.

    When I was growing up, people referred to us as "hicks," thank you very much.

    I believe the band playing the festival is "Shot of JD." Punk band I think, maybe post-industrial metal.

    Sometimes it’s a good thing to be called out publicly. It helps keep things politically neutral.
