    From what I understand, it's a $1.00 surcharge on all licenses that makes up the state's search and rescue fund? In other words, if an OHRV registration fee for a non-resident is $104, only $1.00 of...

    This is always our preferred route, and it avoids any crowds at Diana's Baths (even on summer weekdays).

    Thank you for the heads-up.

    Looks like Northern Pass, in its current incarnation, is toast -- the NH Supreme Court just upheld the SEC opinion to not re-hear the project.
