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.

MORE THEFTS.  Within the last month, a jonboat was stolen at the Flat Lake channel.  And a four stroke motor was stolen off a Zodiak boat at Wright's Island.  Also, a pontoon boat was found floating unattended in the middle of Big Lake.  It's ski pylon had been taken. And an Alumacraft boat with an Etec motor was stolen from a Big Lake marina.  Several insomniacs and light sleepers have reported skiffs out and about in the wee hours of the night, who are most likely up to no good. We all need to remain watchful.

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.

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.

Carolyn sent in a couple shots from over the weekend.
