Busy Beaver

Posted by on Sunday, September 4, 2011 at 6:00 am

Left to their own devices Beavers can be very successful architects.

And we thought Joe stayed busy at S eseganaga Lake . As our camp attendant there he keeps things in fine shape. I wonder if our cabins would look like this if he used only mud and sticks.

Thanks guys!

Our life is one big adventure. There are some adventures that we can do without but when they turn out great like yesterday, we’ll take them as part of the job.

Monday morning at his regular morning check in, Joe at Seseganaga Lake had already spoken with our 11 man group at main camp and was about to head to our West ...read more.

Another upgrade

Posted by on Tuesday, July 26, 2011 at 6:00 am

One more little upgrade to keep ahead of the pack.

IMGP0490

It’s hard to believe this is an outpost camp 100 miles from Ignace.

The counter top at Flindt Lake had a swell near the taps from the sink being improperly installed.  We’ve had a little time to do some “camp maintenance” and have installed a new counter top.  Now the ...read more.

The gremlins have been busy

Posted by on Monday, May 23, 2011 at 6:44 am

Somehow some pine martins got into one cabin this winter.  I would think the only thing of interest to them would be mice.  I am sure we won’t see a mouse in this cabin for a while,  so in that regard it is a good thing.  But martins do make a mess.  They found some pancake flour in the garbage ...read more.

Just winter in Ignace

Posted by on Friday, January 7, 2011 at 8:22 am

As we prepared to head off to sport shows, we looked at the snow load on the hangar roof and figured it better be relieved a bit.

We called for help and soon the hangar was breathing easier (so was I) and the the snow was on the ground where it should be.

The Beaver and Otter aircraft were designed with pilots in mind.  They were designed for the bush and the job they do.  Part of the design of the aircraft is being able to fuel the plane without climbing up on the wing. Part of preparing for every day of flying is ensuring engine oil and fuel are sufficient ...read more.
