A letter from my brother: August 6, 1982

A letter from my brother from Big Trout Lake, Ont. to me. At the time I was working at KaBeeLo Lodge, a fly-out fishing camp about 60 kilolmetres east of Ear Falls, Ont.

It was held together by duct tape. To read it click on the images below.

Geoff was on the 1982 six-week trip led by Scott McGregor and Chris Dillistone. Also on the trip were John Parsons, Dave Knox, Jeff Hunt, John Kagan, John Lamont and Gord Sims.

The girl's trip that year was led by Carole Deally and Eileen Askew. On it were Joan Sullivan, Kim Knight, Adrianne Cairns, Linda Beckett, Carolyn Bedford, Anna Ringstrom and Pam Jamieson.

I took this photo from the balcony of the just-completed Lount Lodge.

1982 six-week return. Geoff is speaking.
