CrownRay, You don't say where your lake destination is. Of course, the best solution is to leave at noon Friday and after breakfast on Monday.

We go to/from Gilford/Merrimack, NH.

I think you can go west on111 (or NH Rt 101A) to NH Rt13 N through Milford and Goffstown and on up to Dunbarton and Concord. Beautiful scenery, places along the way to stop and eat or do errands. You then take any number of local roads to I-393 east to NH Rt 106 (Sheep Davis Rd.) which goes to Laconia/Gilford. Sunday afternoons on big race weekends, Rt 106 can be crowded, as is I-93.

We also sometimes go east from Laconia and take NH Rt. 107 south to Rt 28 and the Rt 28 ByPass around Manchester. (We go through Manchester to get to Merrimack, variety of local roads and or turnpike depending on traffic and our mood.) And then to NH Rt.111. Beautiful ridge vistas in Gilmanton/Barnstead area.
