This week was spent in the Aitkin area. The logging trails were mapped and certain landmark features of the property were Geo tagged. I refer to the crests and valleys of the land, too shallow to appear on the USGS Thor Quadrangle 15 minute map of the area. The exact property end points were also found. Much time and effort was spent, obtaining and cleaning the 1970s pop up family camper. It has languished in the other family owned woods, about 20 miles from Sugar Lake. Languishing for 35 years, it is cleaning up much better than many ney sayers could ever imagine. While it is not the woodsy, home style image hoped for the New Hal’s Trail, it will find a place on the property. It may serve as Kitchen and Technology central for the more primitive general camp compound. The latter is hoped to be primarily logs, posts, beams and canvas.
