I was snooping around Bethel yesterday and saw tracks on small lakes it means ice is building up there. Planning to be at Bald Mountain on Feb 6.

Alton Bay's Facebook page now shows 5-6" thick ice on the lake. Its only a matter of time...

Second recon mission on Alton Bay. Not promising. Runway clearly marked with yellow cones but not groomed. Got on the radio with Paul the airport manager (you can see him by the runway) and he said it's only 8" he wants ice thickness at least a foot to open the airport.




But I scored four ice landings on other places.

Not good at all. I do see some colder weather coming in the next two weeks. I was hoping that the runway would be open in time for the winter carnival. Kind of sucks - I was planning on going.

Default Builder Help

Hi from an RV9 builder in Southern NH. I'd like to connect up with some local builders to review progress and discuss areas where the plans leave you kind of hanging to figure out the best way to move forward. I'm currently at the point where I've got completed wings, empennage, and a partially completed QB fuselage. Sometimes we need a second pair of hands to do a task or just a second set of eyes on the task before we drill.

I'm looking for someone I can help as well as someone who can help me. I'm retired with have a CFII, and A&P rating and live in Concord, NH. If you live in my area and are interested in connecting please send me a note. Thanks, Steve

Several New England RVators are planning Alton Bay B18 tomorrow. Ice runway is open and is in great shape. Come support local economy.
