As for the camp...the place made it through the winter quite well. It might actually be the best the camp has looked after the long winter since we took over 10 years ago. There was minimal damage to the roofs, the docks looked great, and every machine started right up. Even the weather cooperated in our early arrival plans. We have had nothing but blue skies and comfortable temps. It may even get into the upper 70's later this week! Although there was ice on the lake when we arrived, it did not last long. By day 2 our bay was free of ice. The main lake should be open later this week. And since we have open water, that means we also have running water at camp! Good thing to, as our entire family was well over-do for a long hot shower.
As you can see from this post, our internet is up and running. Even though we still have lots to do to get ready for our first guests, I will do my best to keep the Blogs coming, so pass the word...Black Bear Lodge is back for another great year! Heck, I may even go fishing this week.
