Welcome To FlatLake.com!



The site has become a bit stale over the past few months. Time for a change of scenery! I moved a lot of stuff over to a 2017-2018 page and I'm going to start fresh here. Please feel free to send me pictures and/or commentary to include as we go into the late fall/ winter season.

Very cool fall picture!

Thanks to Carolyn Haggard.

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.

As a friendly reminder, the launch at Flat Lake is not a wintertime storage lot as the property is owned by the MSB as a right-of-way drive only.  Many boat skiffs have been pulled up into the launch area for apparent storage, which is not permitted, and a large debris pile of old decking needs to be removed asap by the owner or by the contractor who dumped it on their behalf in September.  If anyone knows who owns these boat skiffs or the large decking debris pile, please contact them and let them know their trespass property must be removed.

A new page

has been added to

the site. It's a link

on the"Memories"

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.
