- A dead pig, a rusted-out car door and 14 syringes, used and unused
Think some farmer in New Hampshire has been looking for that pig for the past month? How far upriver do you think the syringes came from?
- A tree trunk mistaken for an overturned kayak - emergency response ensued
Thankfully, it was a false alarm.
- Some champion rowers
Go River Hawks
- An upgraded tour boat
If you buy it a new engine, they will come.
Did the Norsemen sail up and down the Merrimack? The article does some kind of mash-up of the Vikings with the Westford Knight. If the Vikings did cruise the Merrimack, it was well before the Westford Knight. The article makes no mention of the supposed Viking colony at the mouth of the Merrimack that was reported in 1948. Y'know, the explorers who passed by the Merrimack in search of the Northwest Passage should have taken a closer look. In those days they would have been unimpeded by the Lawrence Dam. Some of those Vikings from the 1948 story made it inland as far as Minnesota. They could easily have found routes west from the Great Lakes.
