There have been multiple instances of vandalism at the parking lot of the Mat-Su Borough boat launch on South Big Lake Road.
Someone is cutting fuel lines on vehicles almost every weekend. At least four cars were hit this last weekend.
The Troopers have been notified, but with budget cuts and that sort of thing, I'm sure they would appreciate any available help from the public.
If you know anything, or might have seen anything suspicious, please call the Troopers at 745-2131.

We had an interesting visitor Saturday evening. While we were in doing the dishes, this little guy got up on the table and decided to do a bit of wine tasting.It didn't get too far, but it was fun to watch.
The fire, burning north of Willow, saw moderate growth to the west, north, and south Monday and is now estimated at 7,512 acres. Red Flag Warnings are in effect today for high winds, high temperatures, low humidity and dry lightning.

ON FLAT LAKE TIME
Smashwords (mobi format for Kindle)
ON FLAT LAKE TIME is the story of how my beautiful, resourceful wife, Gail, and I solved the many unforeseen problems encountered when we moved off the road system to a remote cabin on a lake in Big Lake, Alaska. It chronicles the adventurous lives of the Flat Lake “home guard” and the shift in perspective it takes to fully enjoy and look forward to the next challenge.
Saturday, 10/3/15. Yesterday was cloudy, with showers, and a high in the mid 40s. Steady rain, fairly heavy at times, last night. It's an overcast and rainy morning, with a low of 37. More rain is predicted for today, with a high again expected to be in the mid 40s. Clouds and showers are supposed to start breaking up tomorrow afternoon, and we may see more clear skies in the coming week. The lake level is up probably 6" or 8". If you aren't around to check on your boats, ask a neighbor to run the bilge pump, or make sure they're bailed.

A new page
has been added to
the site. It's a link
page entitled "Camp Tukuskoya" The page focuses on the early days of the camp, but there's a lot to see in the backgrounds of the images as well. Accompanying the images is a first hand recollection from one of the early campers.
If you have old pictures of the lake and would like to send them to me, I'd be happy to put together another page.
Missing matching ski to a pair. If found please return to dock in photo or leave message 227-2337. It was lost somewhere near Hulens Point. We've had the set for several decades and would really like the ski back. The ski is marked"Young Cabin" on boot.
Awesome sunset Saturday evening!
Carolyn sent in a couple shots from over the weekend.
