No kitty litter

Whether Septic or sewer, that's not the place to be dumping kitty litter. Same with "flushable" wipes. Regardless of the label, they don't break down and cause significant additional...

Was Biketember successful? We were in Saunders Bay for the evening and not aware of any bike noise. We had no trouble hearing music from Meadowbrook.

Transfer station

If you can get it to the (Mk, right?) transfer station, they'll take it. There are lots of services that will pick up and remove almost anything that isn't fastened down, but then you have to pay.

Diy?

A bicycle shop may have used large balloon wheels/tires that can be either attached to the boat or used to build a cradle. I have a Sandusky Garden cart that I've used to carry 100's lbs of stone. ...

does it hold water?

Is it upright? After rain, does it hold water? If not, that could explain the apparent abandonment. If it is on association property, there may be by-laws that deal with such situations, allowing...

taxed less

Tilton BB. In a sense you are taxed less. The market value of your island home reflects the seasonal occupancy and the lack of services. If you had the same house on the mainland with comparable...

Glad it was a great evening. Love the place. But 30 is a big year. What will you do to top 29? It gets tougher each year to top the previous year. Maybe a tradition of repeat each year and let...

No bigger

2 stroke vs. 4 stroke
