New Blog Feature

Posted 05-18-2008 at 01:16 PM by webmaster

Welcome to our new Blogs. They can be used to post thoughts, musings, rants, information and just about anything else on your mind.

Unlike a forum thread, you control your blog. You can choose to allow comments or not and can moderate the comments if you want to. Although we encourage you to post about subjects related to the Lakes Region this is not required. You can blog about anything you want here while the Forum will still be completely dedicated to Lakes Region topics.

Semi-Retirement and other of Life's Jewels

Posted 11-20-2008 at 03:34 PM by upthesaukee

Let's see...let's start with semi-retirement. In the summer of 2007, my wife and I looked forward to March 2008 and me reaching a point in life where I could file for retirement and start collecting Social Security (I will not start a debate or partake in one on that subject ). I was not in a rush to do so, and so I did not do much except go on Social Security's website and check out a few things. I already had my annual statement, and knew approximately how much I would be getting per...

My Mom & "The lake"

Posted 11-21-2008 at 09:28 AM by SLI

My mom has spent her entire life summering @ our family's home on Smith Point. This past summer was difficult as she has some form of arthritis which is making it difficult to get around. She can no longer climb stairs to the second floor where the bedrooms are...so a stair lift was installed. She is unable to get around the property.... so she got an electric power chair that enables her to get around. She and Dad have settled into a winter rental that's all one level, warm and cozy even in...

A Different Way to Travel

Posted 06-09-2009 at 12:40 PM by upthesaukee
Updated 06-09-2009 at 04:44 PM by upthesaukee

Back in the early years of travel to the lake, as has been well documented by McDude in his historical postings, rail travel was a prominent mode of transportation. Here is a perspective on that mode of travel.

During the winter, we were talking with our friends, who moved from Laconia to Georgia, about going down to visit them. We talked about driving down vs. flying down and then my wife got the idea that perhaps we should look into taking a train down. She had never been on a train,...

A Magic Carpet Ride , And The Rugg's

Updated 02-14-2010 at 03:00 AM by trfour (Additions to text)

My Mom and Dad were thinking about moving to California from the east coast back in 19and 51. This adventure would have to be thought out well in advance because at the time we were a family of 9 children. First of all, as we all know today, how can we make this gigantic move, and secondly, do we have anymore families of this size today?.... Food for thought. If you are thinking that maybe times were better back in the day, try it!!

Second of all, logistics, feeding the family while...
