April 5th and we’re looking at the last of the ice on Carey Lake. I’m estimating another 3 days myself, I guess we’ll see how good my guessing is next week. The planes are being transferred to wheels and will continue working through the break up.
We’re really looking forward to getting the camps ready this year. Solar panels have been used in fly in outposts for quite a while and we’re looking at getting a few systems in place for our own. If all goes well, most of the camps will be serviced with Solar power by the end of the season. What’s next? saunas?? screen porches? hmmmm only time will tell.
I’m trying to think of the last time we had such an early season…I should have researched before posting, but it sure has been a long time. The Ministry of Natural Resources is expecting a dry summer which means fire bans for everyone. We’ll keep our fingers crossed so we can continue having outside fires and shore lunches. They are such important parts of a fly in.
Next post…ICE GONE!
