Nice try MMC! But does anyone believe this?

If any of us guys said it would you believe it?

Hmmm....well, wording...nevermind.

Modestly priced hooker, magic marker, chainsaw, bull horn and plenty of stumbly juice. And possibly a monkey wrench.

I do hope the lodge has a shortwave radio, Anna, and that you can use it while there. You just have to have some way to communicate in case of an emergency.

The suggestion of a telescope was a great one. I hope the lodge has one, imagine how awesome the viewing would be on clear nights! Even without a telescope the stars will be amazing!

First she must know how to use it. In an emergency it is not necessary to have a license, but they are not just the sort of thing you can just turn on and away you go. Operating a short wave radio is somewhat complicated. I got my first level of licensing back in 2002 which was rather easy, I upgraded to General (more operating frequencies available) a couple of years ago and there is one more level to go (Extra) but I have not yet been able to pass the exam for that one yet.

Give the practice tests a try and see how you do.

If there are wolves I'm going to hunt them. That could keep me busy for the whole two months. So I'll bring: Wolf tags, electronic call, snowshoes, snow camo, snow ghillie, 204 Ruger and a thousand rounds of 45-grain ammo (developed to hunt wolves), fur stretchers. An old fire shelter, (they aren't legal for use on fires anymore, but are damned good space blankets and waterproof ground cloths).


My kindle for reading. Might find time to finish some of the books I have on it.

Anna, do they have an ice auger? take your ice fishing gear! I'm not sure what is in THAT lake but Pike, Grayling, Burbot, or any of the char or trout species ought to liven up the canned stuff.
