Posting some photos from around the lake this past weekend. Not much to really write about - no adventures per se while out on the water, but definitely enjoying all that life has to offer right now. Cat at the helm getting ready for her first excursion without me to help Favorite hanging out spot I'm avoiding the sun while the wife is trying to get some Rattlesnake and Diamond Island Alton Bay Enjoying a swim and getting ready for sunset Sunset on the lake Full Moon up in the sky while the sun sets opposite direction

Life is good Stocks are up, my weight is down... Having a cigar and enjoying today. Funny thing is, everyone loves the photo but no one understands the difference. Two hands!!! Took me far too many tries to set the camera up just right and snap a timed photo. Enjoy life!

I recently got back into playing / day trading / gambling in the stock market. I have the standard go-to's... IRA's, 401Ks, Mutual Funds, Stocks, blah blah blah. Doing what you need to do to save enough to retire. The standard boring stuff. Investing is supposed to be boring. The more boring and automated it is, the more you are doing it correctly. This last big crash, I did nothing. I watch the accounts go down and then watched them go back up again. By not panicking, I'm better off today than I was at the start of the year. That is investing. Knowing the goal and working towards the goal no matter what happens around you. Playing in the…

The last of the Belknap Range for my hiking series and probably one of the easiest to hike up if you wanted. At Gunstock Mountain there is a gravel road that goes straight up the front to access all of the towers on top of this mountain. So instead you park on the back side of the mountain by the elementary school and hike from there. Bridge path leading from the parking lot You start off on this very picturesque path and over a stream and start heading up the mountain. You have two choices, a yellow trail that goes straight up, or a blue trail that switchbacks many times to give you a more gradual climb. Since Cat hurt…

Took the Scarab out for a day on the lake and tossed out the two anchors at our favorite spot. Relaxing on the lake Since we have a jet boat (no propeller) we can go into two or three feet of water without worrying about hitting a rock. The boat drafts next to nothing. Honestly we are ecstatic with our Scarab 215. Purchased it new and don't regret getting it one bit. Only 30 hours on the boat this year so far, but for what I have under my belt, I would recommend this boat to anyone and everyone. We drop the main anchor and then toss out my four pronged "rock anchor" - honestly not sure what else to…

Our renovations are finally complete and we officially have the place fully rented with income coming in. BeforeAfter Before After The renovations have really come along nicely, fully completed, and the unit is now rented. The other tenant was away for a few weeks so we took that opportunity to redo the bathroom there as it was needed. Now with the house fully rented the LLC's bank account is growing rapidly and it is time to look for a second duplex or single family home to rent. Will post more about that one later, but wanted to have an update. Butcher Block Counter Top New Floor and Paint No more wall paper and new carpet In all we probably put…

Successfully completed our loop climbing East Quarry to West Quarry and then onto Mount Rand and back. 4.67 Miles with a 1,293 elevation Between Quarry and Rand - Taking the Ledge Route Our trip too us roughly 2 hours and 20 minutes. We were taking our time overall and the Mrs twisted her ankle coming down Rand - she was tired - so that slowed us down also. The key take away from the injury is to take along some snacks. We've been doing quite a few of the easy hikes and while it was only two hours if your body doesn't have enough fuel to keep going you're bound to get injured. EAST QUARRY Easy Quarry Peak Both peaks…
