New Satellite Internet

May weather is always unpredictable in the north woods, so we shouldn't have been surprised by six straight days of rain. This was a working visit, though, to get the camp ready for summer vacation rentals and get other improvements done, so we made good use of the time anyway.

One new improvement that some of our guests have asked for is high-speed wireless internet. We've resisted bringing civilization with us to our remote hidey-hole in the woods, till now. The satellite dish out on the driveway delivers it for those who can't completely disconnect from the world. Enjoy, but don't let it distract you from the real reason you're here!!

We're also close to adding a second cabin on our 25-acre tract. Not to worry! The cabins will not be visible from each other, so the privacy people so enjoy about this place will not be diminished. A new driveway, just south of the existing cabin, runs 600 feet down to the bend in the river, and the second cabin will be tucked into a grove of white pines down there, with a view of the falls from below. Please don't disturb the flags and stakes marking the building site.

The water is way up. Higher than it was even for Hurricane Irene, but not as high as Superstorm Sandy. I'm relieved my son, Jeremy, wasn't with us this time, because he would've been goading me to get out on the water with our whitewater kayaks, and I'm just not the young, reckless fellow I used to be.
