Dee

The day after Scott and I hauled windows out, it was another beautifully sunny day. I still had George’s old snowmachine, and knew quite well that a trip out to the cabin would be a breeze. I was also interested to show Dee how fast we could get out there in the winter, and thought […]

Winter Weekend with Scott & Dee (Trip 12)

Posted by Justin in Each Trip, Full Account, Supplies & Tools

Scott packed down the snow around the cabin with his rented snowmachine in order to pull the windows up closer.

With snow still heavy on the ground, I made a trip out to the property on Saturday, March 20 with my girlfriend’s neighbor, Scott. He was eager to assist in hauling out windows and interested to see how things were taking shape at the cabin. Of course, I hadn’t been out since the previous October, […]

Breakfast at the Berg Hunting Camp with my new neighbors

This had to be the most eventful trip to the property I’ve had to date. I arrived to the parking lot late on September 17 after picking up lumber from Spenard Builder Supply, unloading and loading at my boss’s brother’s place in Trapper Creek, loading up ATV and getting fuel. Then, as usual, I had […]

Thanks for tearing up my stuff!

Posted by Justin in Wildlife Encounters

Bears will enjoy thrashing ANYTHING left unsecured.

Having seen the mess the night before, I woke on August 9 and headed over to where I had staged lumber and other supplies earlier in spring. In my absence, a bear or bears decided to have a little fun with my supplies. A role of felt paper was shredded many layers through, and screws […]
