Question Hedgehog?

Curious how "Hedgehog Hill" came to be named in New Hampshire. :confused: Hedgehogs, native to Europe and Asia, are not found on this side of the world.

And the alternative is...?

Unfortunately? Isn't it important to anchor a respect for "the Lake the way it once was"?

However "peaceful and friendly" a newbie Lake user may consider himself -- whether boat, PWC, or...

Exclamation Special tax section

A "Special Tax Report" appeared this morning in the Citizen on-line. Towns around the Big Lake are discussed. :look:

Last winter, a dark-blue barge temporarily "uglified" a residential area near me. (It was intentionally sunk at a damaged-dock work site for the winter).

When the ice melted in April, they pumped...

Big Boats: A Winnipesaukee "Cultural Impact" ?

Winnipesaukee is fortunate to be an oligotrophic lake. (It could "stay good" for years).

But abuses can "force" a good lake into a eutrophic lake -- a dying lake.

Here's what nhlakes.org...

Smile Angling in The Smile of the Great Spirit article

The title is new to me, but it appeared in Foster's this morning. A Gilford doctor wrote it, and it's mostly about fishing Winnipesaukee.

But the article makes interesting reading even for former...

Not waves... wakes.

That makes sense -- but only from a Gilford perspective. The biggest whitecaps are produced by winds from the Northwest on Winnipesaukee.

Me too, but then I have always picked my weather.

Smile You don't remember the 1939 Hurricane?

Yeah, you're right -- 1938 Hurricane. Senior moment.

Maples too. It must have been much worse than Hurricane Bob. "Bob" only caused all the big pines around the lake to lean. (Including mine).

I recall a dog-sled operator being granted "peaceful solitude" by a snowmobile last year.

Hoo boy.

"Burning Issues" reads like an Enron "Clean-air" natural gas advertisement. (Except for Burning Issue's word "lung-rape", which puts the site into an altogether different league).

(Maybe carry a small 2-stroke outboard to get you home?)
