29th Annual Mt. Melee
The Kancamagus Highway, best part of the drive over to Lincoln.
The show site: Hobo Railroad.
Just North of Lincoln is NH's signature scenic wonder: The Old Man
of the Mountain. Good thing I took this picture: the "Old Man" collapsed
into the valley the following May!
Back at the Beacon Motel, the base for this event for 29 years, I wound up by the pool with a few other "Old Timers" whom Sandy and I first got to know in the 70s. We spent a couple hours (and more than a couple beers) sharing "Danny Stories" - memories of some of the crazy antics that made Dan Gale legendary. It was amazing how many of the "incidents" we all had witnessed! Bittersweet, but fun!
Saturday dinner and party.

Hey Dave, that's not a costume: That's your UNIFORM!
