All weather tires

Can't understand why SUV owners think they can conquer the world in their vehicles with all-season tires and vehicles not designed for off-road use. A trip to Wally World, that's about it.

I believe he is referring to the Lakeside Diner across from Golford Walmart.
He was also frequently seen at the old Sunset Cafe with his son John Jr.

Lake Umbagog

I'm glad they miss this lake. It is best-left secret. The shorefront is pretty much owned by the state, so no development to spoil the beauty. Probably the best fishing hole in New England, next to...

Classic cars, RVs

I do know if you have an RV or auto with antique plates, you can call the insurance company that you are putting your vehicle into storage. Call when you take it out of storage. Save tons of money....

That is correct, the 'footprint' is grandfathered. You cannot make the footprint larger or extend from it but you can build it up. Any changes to septic and or utility access require wetland approval.

Thanks for the clarification.

I think changing the signage in the Weirs Channel to Headway Speed will be a big step in avoiding the confusion of headway speed because of current in the spring and fall runoff.
Thank you for the...

Secrets

There are always best kept secret places. Don't want to turn it into mayhem such as T-Bones. Great place to go but because of the crowd, haven't been there in years!

If safety is an issue, I have a 2007 Jeep Commander available. New tires, all maintenance is done. Built like a tank with only 156K on the clock. Granddaughter's old car. We are still using it daily....

Used cars

Just when I purchase a 2014 allroad from San Jose with 30K on the clock a 2015 V60 Cross Country with 30K appears in Hooksett. Clean Carfax! Guess I can't win!

Caliper Lube

Found in any auto supply store. If not, brake lube will do.

Calipers tend to stick in place. The holders should be lubed as well. To lube effectively requires removal of the calipers, clean and...

Randy,

You may want to write a letter to local papers such as Laconia Daily Sun. Get the word out.

Looking for an SUV?

Then yes the Subbie is a good buy. You should be able to find one with less mileage than that! 250K is doable as long as you keep up with the maintenance. Personally, I would look at the Mazda CX5,...

True. Winnipesaukee is over-regulated with the exception of Squam Lake. No wonder Dunleavy said his crew spends more time appeasing property owners than actually enforcing the boating laws!

Prime Ribs

Hart's OK compared to Avery's. Now that Avery's closed I need another fix. VK is great but a hike from Laconia. Going to try Lakeside in Alton.

When available, nothing beats Lyon's Den!
