Foodie Erik Willis gets out and about, finding some new food experiences and changing places.

So I have some very exciting news to share on the living space front so I wanted to start this article by talking about that. I will be moving to Spofford, NH this coming Thursday. My new backyard will be Pisgah State Park and I will also be very close to Chesterfield Gorge State Park. Both of these places will find their way into upcoming articles I am sure of it. Also as part of the rental agreement, I get to stay in a cottage on Lake Spofford for two weeks a year which is amazing. The adventures I am going to have and write about will be even more exciting than before! 

I will be the same distance from Keene and Brattleboro. For my foodie adventure this week I ended up going on my maiden voyage to Top of the Hill Grill on Putney Road in Brattleboro. It is a very good spot for barbecue and the views are quiet lovely. The food came out quickly. I highly recommend checking out their hours and planning a trip there to enjoy a road trip and some well above average BBQ.

Okay then that’s all for this weeks edition of Out and About. May your week be filled with good food, grand adventure and most of all the company of family and friends in the bonds of love!

I definitely will be out and about!

Thanks, Erik, for your return. We are greatly appreciative of your work and your love for the food world. We look forward to more of your visits to area fooderies. And let Erik know if you have a fave you would like to see him at.

Erik wanted to share this poem he wrote with you.

Extending my Reach

Today I’m focused on extending my reach 

Crafting intently speech after speech 

I have so much to offer and so much to teach 

To those who will listen this is what I beseech 


Put in the time in the form of investing

Laziness is the thing you should be detesting 

Put in the work is what I’m suggesting 

Then go to bed early and get to resting 


In this way daily you will be recharged

And your vision will grow and simply be enlarged
