It's been a busy week at Rockwood! Besides spending time on all the stuff we really enjoy - talking to people, helping them with their vacation plans, making reservations and getting Boundary Waters entry permits, we've had a lot of late winter chores too. Mike is taking down dead trees; it's much easier when you can drop the tree on the frozen lake and don't have to worry about hitting something. Of course, it isn't a lot of fun to haul all that stuff OFF the lake, but there's a lot more room to maneuver!
We've also been doing trail research, checking websites and catalogs for new gear, and studying job applications from a bunch of great people who've applied to work at Rockwood this summer. We've also been making lists of all the maintenance work that needs to be done... think of the stuff you might need to be doing on your house come warm weather and then just multiply by 12 or so!
