Miscellaneous: Finding a New Hampshire-only map is difficult because it is usually bundled in with other New England states. We found a couple that were quite useful and pop them in the trunk when we take our trips to the northeast.
Rand Mcnally and American have good street/highway maps with some city inserts and sights to see indicators. Delorme has a great guide with lots of things to see and do and how to get there.Related to:

Don't forget you raincoat
Luggage and bags: A suitcase on wheels is always the best
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Take good walking shoes as New Hampshire has many historic towns with uneven sidewalks and you need good hiking shoes for the treks into the mountains. Also it can turn cold quickly, so keep a jacket handy.Related to:

Luggage and bags: When traveling it always seems you run out of room for your stuff. Stuff is important.
Try this trick. Always carry a good quality heavy duty plastic bag. I fill the bag full and use the vaccum to shrink down an entire wardrobe into the smallest spaces. They do sell special bags for these needs. I even have them, but if you have the vaccum available and a good bag, get ready to really condense your stuff!Related to:

Luggage and bags: Make sure you have a rugged day-pack if you are hiking. I like the packs made by EMS. See their web site at:
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: For shoes when hiking, I usually just wear sneakers, but a good pair of hiking shoes are handy too.
In summer it gets hot & humid, especially in southern NH so light clothing is essential. Shorts and t-shirts are also appropriate in the summer up north, but you'll probably want a sweater, sweat-shirt or windbreaker at night.
If you are spending time on the ocean, you will want to bring a sweatshirt even in the heat of summer. Layering is key.
In winter, I like a wool sweater and down parka to keep warm. When cross-county skiing, however, I tend to dress light: A couple layers of cotton/lycra leggings & a long-sleeve T-shirt under a man's wool button-down shirt does the job just fine. Don't forget wool socks, wool hat & Thinsulate gloves!
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Bug repellent with DEET!
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Bug repellent with DEET!
A beekeeper's hat also helps with the black flies and mosquitoes during spring and summer.Related to:

Luggage and bags: Take a small backpack for the short hikes which you can pack the items needed for the day.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bring along sturdy hiking boots and don't forget your wet weather gear. My rain outfit proved invaluable on the Arethusa Falls/Frankenstein Cliff trail, since it poured with rain the entire 3 and a half hours it took me to complete the hike.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Heavy duty insect repellant, those mozzies will get you if you don't use it.
Photo Equipment: Bring your camera and lots of film, you'll be taking a lot of pictures. My little Canon Elph Junior is perfect for hiking, it's tiny, fits in palm of my hand, and takes wonderful pics in APS format.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Make sure you pack all your camping gear and a tarp to cover your cooking area in case of rain.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Good shoes of course, I had only sports shoes that
I manage with, but better have hiking shoes.
Long sleeves clothes. Towel (lot’s of lakes around).
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Water, food, sleeping bags, tent, map, matches/Zippo.
Miscellaneous: Miles and I may not be the perfect model for skiers, but here are some of our suggestions: warm ski pants & jackets, warm socks (not cotton), waterproof mittens or gloves, helmet or baseball cap, goggles or sunglasses, sunscreen & chapstick; JUST KEEP WARM!
