|Canoes lashed together for large cargo|
Once we had transported the cargo from the Leisure Lee dock there was much lugging of the goods up to the cabin.
Above, Steve and Mike carry some heavy loads up the hill.
By mid afternoon we were nearing completion of the opening tasks with all the materials stored, cabin cleaned out, canoes out, water brought over from the spring, gas hooked up and pilots lit, etc. There sure was an impressive supply of consumables including pancake mix and syrup to store!

Last job for the day was floating and assembling the dock. With the prep work done by Pete and now having done this a few times it didn't take long to get it all assembled and floating.
With Mike and Penny's arrival for the first week of caretaking we took our leave and headed back down the hill, satisfied with another great day at Upper Goose Pond. Pete returned to the cabin today (Sunday) to complete a few jobs and reports that Mike and Penny had a very successful first night with 7 guests!
Thanks to all who helped out and welcome to Ruth, Michael and Ellie, our newest caretakers who joined in the days efforts.
