Other propane appliances?

Even though you might not have them now, in locating the new tank, I'd consider what future appliances might be added and where these will go. We have a gas kitchen cook top, and a standby...

Congratulations. It's a great and memorable accomplishment. My solo was 1970 in Corpus Christi, TX. Later, I learned to fly tail draggers in Maine on a grass strip--skis in winter, not wheels.

Pics? or Toots?

I don't think we need pix. Play us a tune and post the youtube link. I guess the video would be visual too, so two birds with one toot. Maybe you'll have to re-christen C-Nile to "Tooters"? Boats...

Top 20

Interesting reading Aps. But Wolfeboro got scr***d. Most other towns had nice pics of lakes and beaches. Wolfeboro got a pic of Main St. traffic, and not very good pic at that. And when is this...

Assess vs appraise vs tax rate

I continue to be amazed by the apparent widespread misconception that assessors have anything to do with setting the tax rate or the level of community spending. That's up to the voters. If you...

Rare?

Probably rare because they didn't make many games. Didn't make many because they couldn't sell many. In the 70's and 80's there were a lot of groups making local games following a "Monopoly" style...

Silt?

I feel like the problem is more about blowing silt around and damaging the clarity of the water and making it less hospitable to fish & other wildlife.

Menotomy

I seem to recall a thread a few years ago about Camp Menotomy--the land etc, not stories about campers. It seemed then that there were some good reasons the GS Council did not want to sell. They've...

So, the family has been on the lake since just after the war, built on Welch Island ~1960. Nobody would ever consider selling, even though total use might be 30-40 days a season. From 1970-2005, we...

Snowbirding?

This isn't really about snowbirding, but it's a nice dream. I think you need a longer horizon, i.e. start buying land now. I suggest contacting the NH Timberland Owners Association. Jason Stock is...

If you have no cash, how do you tip when there isn't a bill? Hotel bellman, valet parking, gas dock, piano man, etc.

Bear Island Hotel?

In a recent thread about ice harvesting, it was mentioned that the ice was sold to the Bear Island Hotel. Unfamiliar to me. Can anybody enlighten me? Where on the island? Built? Burned? How big?...

Modifications?

Two items
1. Sound like noodles on your snow shoes could have been a benefit
2. If you were just LL instead of FLL, would the ice have let you pass safely?
