The Conover's journey from Moosehead Lake to Allagash has ended... They're talking about continuing... boy these people are tough  :o

A link to some pictures of the last part of the "Winter Walk" down the frozen Saint John river.

Cool!
Thanks for the update.
Really does look like fun.
With that kind of equipment, the hardest part of whole deal sounds like just dragging it around.

Yup we're just finishing up shoveling and plowing out of a 39" dumping of snow...then we got another 5" 3 days later... 5 days of this S4!t is enough  :o :o



The Winter Walk is supposed to start from up this way and end in  Greenville... with all this snow I don't think it'll be "just dragging it around"... it'll be more like swimming it around... cause every time I stepped of the Bearcat (snowsled)this past week I was swimming!!!

Like SD says "Winter IS here" at least this far north... I guess 100 miles south of here they only got a few inches  ::)

All the snowmobile trails are groomed and supa!!! up this way  8) 8)

You hang in there pappy , you live in a beautiful area . I havent been keepin up like I should but I know your log cabin was done and did you build anymore of those guest cabins this last year ?  Its a different winter here this year as there is problems on most of the lake ice and that is too much snow and flooding and thin spots . Makes it tough to ice fish . Happy New Year pappy !

Hey UB,

The cabin outback is quite livable... we got the kitchen cabinets (no drawer and door fronts yet) and sink in place a shower w/ a pail on a rope... I'll have to post some pics  been lazy on that part... ::)

As far as the lake ice up in these parts I've heard about the same as what you got... thin ice at inlets and slush elsewhere because of the heavy snoload... It should freeze up cause the temps have been dipping down below zero at night... night before last we stayed at camp it was minis 20 F and last night was a might warmer here at the house w/ only minis 10F...  ;)
