Northern Lights Lodge, Ltd.
Hi from Northern Lights Lodge. John, Lori, and Koda arrived in Lynn Lake on April 3 and took a helicopter out to the Lodge the morning of April 4. Temperatures were in the high twenties and stayed nice for a few days and then it turned colder. We had plenty of wood and stayed nice and warm. We had a couple of nights that hit -15 and plenty of nights that got below zero. We had a lot of snow and were pretty much confined to the lodge for about three weeks. We can't tell you how beautiful it was up here that time of year. With the water moving so fast past the lodge to the rapids we had a couple acres of open water in front of the lodge. About a week after we arrivied we had some Canadian geese in the bay, along with ducks and an Otter. We had quite the site when we watched an Eagle swoop down and try and pick a duck out of the water. The weather stayed cold all of April and most of May. We had hoped to be able to take the Argo on to the ice and get wood and do some ice fishing, but we had about four feet of snow in March and April and it put so much weight on the ice that the water came through and created over a foot of slush, and we could not get on the lakes. The ice did't go off until May 29 and John got a ride to town from a friend that has a floatplane on Tuesday the 30, which was the first day in about four days that we could fly because of the weather. John drove to The Pas, Manitoba (450 miles) Wednesday morning to get our floatplane and do a lot of shopping for supplies that afternoon. Thursday morning he flew out of The Pas to the lodge and arrived around noon.

I would like to pass this poem along to you.
Some days come and some days go,
Someday, were all goin fishin.
Someday, well all raft the river,
Someday, Im heading up North,
Well go by boat, well go by plane,
Someday, Ill win big in the lotto,
Yet something says theres work to do
So the time had come for action.
Then I called the man to set it up,
He says, "Everyones going someday."
And, when I cursed in great frustration,
And on that day well be together,
Theyll say, "Ol John was quite a guy.
Cuz some days come and some days go,
So make the time, take the money,
