Link to the Lombard Log Hauler and Model T Snowmobile Section

The Lombard was used in the Great North Woods and elsewhere in the early 1900s to haul logs out of the woods.

Colebrook Winter Carnival Index

The Great North Woods region of northern NH, VT and ME is an economically depressed area compared to much of the rest of the states they are in.

With President Bush's tax cut, the average family of four will be allowed to keep another $2000 of their hard earned dough.

Please come up, over or down to here to spend some of it! Which is more fun? Sending it to Washington for the bureaucrats to parcel out bit by bit in grants and other means, skimming off their megga expenses or spending it yourself, helping to employ folks here?  
(Ed's note on the below: There is safe parking at the various lodgings advertised on this site... Click to the Lodging section listed above. Also there is a pay for parking place that should be safe near the Nash Stream Road.)

I hope this info provided here to you can be passed on to others that may visit this area. Unfortunately it is not good news. While utilizing the parking lot at Nash Stream (which we hoped would be a good day of riding and it was!) the return to our vehicles in the lot was much a surprise. We returned after a long day of riding, 12 people, only find that our vehicles were broken into. Personnal belonging and snowmoblie accessories were taken from 5 trucks. We are talking about tool boxs to sled cover, gas cans, injection oil etc...
After discussing this incident with locals it was brought to our attention that this happens frequently.

This is very unfortunate to the local businesses in the area, they suffer the lost of revenue and disappointing to snowmobilers because we can not enjoy a day of snowmobiling without worry about our belongings. If we can some how, maybe via this website, pass along a few words about securing belongings to whom may visit the Nash Stream area and maybe asking the local Police to patrol the parking lot as often as possible this may help change the reputation of the area...
Hope this will change. It is just terrible that a few can ruin a good thing...
Regards Jim

You'll find the Great North Woods web site and another of my sites, weaving together.

Some of this is for technical reasons, much because it makes sense for some parts of the sites to be linked together.

They are on different servers at opposite ends of the country. One of the reasons for this is redundancy in the event of communication problems.
Winter is "Catch Up Time". I have taken several thousand pictures over the spring through fall of 2000. Now I'm going into "hole up" phase and will be finally getting them up on the sites over the winter. navigates by auto routes within and beyond the Great North Woods region of northern New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine.

For instance, you can see what is on routes two or three in the region and beyond.

Both sites are constantly being improved and expanded, come back often to check them out!
