On The Agenda

Our monthly meeting is coming up Saturday March 21. We’ll have a few thing to discuss over lunch;

  • Planning for our Beach Day this summer.
  • We’ll soon be ready for our spring cleaning on our adopted highway.
  • There is another plan for a big day at Funspot.
  • Welcome home plan for Firecracker Joe.

Our meetings are rather informal gatherings which run for an hour or two. We’re looking forward to seeing you.

Save the Date

We're having a party!
We’re having a party!

A festival/celebration for liberty activists in New Hampshire. Activities include sunbathing, swimming, hiking, and a cook-out hosted by the Lakes Region Porcupines!

We are looking for anyone who wants to volunteer for a variety of tasks both before and during the event. We are keeping the event local to Weirs Beach, but any and all activities that anyone would like to host are more than welcome. Soon, we will release a map of the area for you to share all over social media.

Come see the beauty of the lakes region, enjoy a day at the beach, and explore the area. You’ll find that the natives are very friendly and liberty minded.

If you’re coming for the weekend, you can catch the fireworks show on Friday night at the Weirs. We’ll have info coming soon on places to stay, including rustic camping for those on a really tight budget.

Stay tuned for updates and additions to the activities offered!

Liberty Forum Tour

Tour the Lakes Region

This year Liberty Forum moves to Manchester from its previous venue in Nashua, the event has outgrown the Crowne Plaza. The convention draws people from around the country, and beyond, to get a taste of the spirit of liberty that is sparked by the Free State Project.

As Liberty Forum has expanded and people take advantage of the opportunity to visit New Hampshire organizers have incorporated a tour to various areas of the ‘Live Free or Die’ state.  The Lakes Region Porcupines will host our leg of the tour on Monday, March 2, 1:00, at a most unique and interesting venue, Funspot!

You don’t need a ticket to Liberty Forum to take part in the tour stops. Join us to see how liberty is growing in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire.

Winter in the Lakes Region

Some think winter is for hibernating but if you feel the need to shake off the cabin fever, a hike up Mt. Major in Alton will provide you with an awesome view of Lake Winnipesaukee.

While it is not handicap accessible, Mt Major is a fairly easy hike for a person in reasonable condition. It is a very popular hike and can be crowded on weekends and holidays. I prefer a mid-week hike to avoid the crowd.

For those coming to New Hampshire for Liberty Forum, you won’t need much equipment to hike Mt. Major. Hiking always requires proper judgement and preparation. If conditions are reasonable minimal equipment will get you to the top. The trails are well worn and snow is packed down by the stream of hikers.
