    Changes at Chairville?

    Had some time to kill yesterday in Medford. Decided to drive past Chairville cemetery and drive up Sandtown Rd and past Kirbys Mill and finally to check on the progress at the Dr. Stills historic site. I went to pull in front of the cemetery but now it is all fenced in with a black metal fence...

I was a little skeptical of going because I know Manchester Police go there quite often and I did not want a trespassing ticket. When I came out of...

Once I got to the base of the mountain before you turn right and go up I noticed the road toward the railroad had been cut and widened on both sides. I did not follow it so I dont...

    Forked River Mountain

    Was walking around FRM yesterday to celebrate earth day. At the top are a bunch of concrete barriers piled up. Not sure if these will be used to block the roads around the mountains or to shore up the north side which is washing away pretty badly.

    Walked in the Lacey Materials today after the controlled burn over a week ago. They burned as far as I could see from Lacey Road to the back of the cleared areas and into the woods beyond that. They even burned each individual pine island regardless of size. They widened and graded some roads...

    Winslow Junction

    Took a walk through Amatol/Race track area today. They made a bunch of new fire cuts. Perhaps they are going to burn down there too. Afterwards I took the kids over to Winslow Junction. I could not believe the destruction and damage that has occurred there in the last year. Every inch of train...

    Warren Grove Bombing range

    Looking at the satellite images of the WG bombing range it looks like they have an old train out there? Something they practice strafing? Does anybody know what some of the other items out there are? Buildings or old vehicles...
