Perhaps long time islanders have developed a different tolerance level? As noted earlier, it is common to follow perimeter paths or to develop trails across other's property. Generally, in deference...

I thought earlier, not much logging on the islands except to harvest after the hurricane of '38. Now it dawns on me. I suggest these were used to tie logs together to make a log raft and transport...

Interesting. I had some ideas, but the more I thought about it, the less likely it seemed. What's the history of the land where they were found? Logging, Farming? Type of farm ?

Improvement

Anchoring and getting a shuttle pick up is certainly an improvement over trying to dock at the Weirs.

Another week or two and the leaf peepers will be out in droves, and they come everyday, not just weekends. Busiest time of year for some. You just don't see them from your boat/marina.

No to term limits

I think in NH, term limits pretty much are taken care of by the voters and the fact that our politicians are essentially unpaid ($100/year for House and Senate). With two year terms, approximately...

You do pay

Pretty much you do pay. You just don't see the bill. Once you're in the ambulance, or otherwise getting EMT services, your insurance company is picking up the tab.

Yes, APS, they took the funds that Director Barrett had saved to rehab the old MP HQ. And they built a facility that will work for the next 50 years. Wise decisions in my book, especially after a...

Natural waves vs boats?

Wind driven waves have their place. Mostly, exposed areas have moved the waters edge up to the ledge or granite boulders over the last few hundred years. However, in a protected cove, or on a small...
