Our Stay at High Camp »

January 7th, 2017

Hi Chris,

Just wanted to drop a note to say thank you for the nice time we had. And Happy New year!

It was a nice first visit for me. Everyone was so nice and helpful. I’d love to come back for more fun in the snow. I’d also like to come back up for some volunteer work to help out where needed. And then there’s the picture of the fish that’s an image beckoning me to do some fishing up there.

High Camp Happenings

Beyond the Ten Essentials »

Oh I am hoping this article does not get “preachy”. We in the back country community cannot be attentive enough to our decision-making as we play hard at what we love to do.

Around the Woodstove

Humble »

Well, this is all over…fixed…in the past…history! If you recall the last post on Around the Woodstove we bragged about all the great repairs we had made on the snocat. We did everything right and nothing could go wrong now.
