My brother and I decided to fly up to Laconia, New Hampshire, near the beautiful Lake Winnipesaukee to explore the area. We’re hoping to fly to Alton Bay, an ice runway that opens up every year once the ice is thick enough, as it’s only a 10 minute flight from Laconia. Prudent aeronautical decision making means that we wanted to go explore the area first so were familiar with it before attempting a much more challenging trip!
