Nothing to brag about, in my book. My B-in-law, your neighbor of sorts, paid a lot of $$$ to "quake proof" his home, and he could still be part of a major fire. They visit us, we don't visit them.

You're right, there's a mix. The Lake Hosts are joint project between NHLakes and DES. Some paid, some volunteers. As far back as the mid 60's the Town of Gilford PD had an officer on duty (Bert...

In another thread, you'll learn that people trying to compete in the Lakes Region are competing with folks who paid cash for the business and run it as a hobby. You're not in the old times now.

That's too bad. I usually count the posts, assuming 8 foot separation, to judge whether I can fit in a particular spot. Is the handicap dock still at the wrong end? i.e., far away from the parking...

Going in and out of various public docks, I was taught to use a fixture on shore, e.g. a boat house, as my reference. Usually, it was more like 300-400 feet. No problem, and we needed...
