Nice work John. Very cool page!
I spoke to Todd a couple weeks ago and he told me he planned on heading up to try some ice fishing with Brian Bernhardt (famous for the Lunge Lodge DVD).

Back in the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s the Chief Commanda came from North Bay down the French river full of passengers touring the river. The ship made several stops to deliver mail and food supplies to Key Stone camp, Lunge Lodge and Dokis, to name a few. Back in those days Lunge had a large L shaped dock that the ship would tie to. The passengers would get off and have lunch in the dinning room at Lunge Lodge. When Barb and Wolf owned the lodge, they were told the dock would have to be reinforced or the Chief Commanda would not stop there anymore. Well anyone who knew Wolfgang knows he wouldn't fix anything, so the Chief stopped coming. I believe the Chief Commanda, docked in North Bay still goes out on lake for tours. Just some trivia for the campfire. Notice how white the stones are are around the flag pole?

Been a long absence, however I would like to wish everyone a fond hello!  I'll be back!
