replacement

As always, if you sell for a high price, when it comes to buying an equivalent replacement, you will buy at a high price and lose your sweat equity. And maybe you paid substantial capital gains tax? ...

lacking (my) amenities

For $4MM, I'd want deeper water with a dock suitable for larger boats, not a temporary seasonal dock. Of course, if you just sold your house in the big city at $5MM to escape Covid, this could be a...

You may think you're a Professor, but a good teacher would give us facts. Rarely going to Moultonboro, I have no idea what a "good restaurant in Moultonboro" means. SAMIAM, are you OK?

human failure

Too complicated

Way too much detail. Been in the same camp for 60+ years. A cup or two of antifreeze in the toilets, shower, sinks. No need to drain 100%, it will mix and still be good to 30 below. Don't have a...

Mayor of GI?

Governor's Island can't elect a mayor. Too many of the property owners are legal residents of Florida. You'd never get a quorum at March Town Meeting. LOL.

Joint responsibility?

Maybe whoever plows should also be doing the grading and maintenance? If he has a year round contact, you both might be happier.
