Many thanks to Greg Shute, Don Lamson and Andy Williams for heading up to Debsconeag in the snow and doing work on the property. They found the site in good shape. The yurts eagerly await our arrival in the spring! Part of what they took care of is leftovers. On many of the lakes in that region boat owners leave boats, Chewonki included, so that they can hike in and have a boat for useL Fishing; Paddling to the other side; Looking at plants; Enjoying scenery. In an effort to make sure all boats were accounted for, this summer the Nahmakanta Preserve Management took inventory of the boats and then reached out to all the owners to first identify and then label their boats as well as to remove any that they didn’t want to keep using. We keep boats on the adjacent lakes, however, there was still an aluminum rowboat on 5th Debsconeag. The boat belonged to Pleasant Point Camps, which is who owned our site previously. Greg, Andy and Don brought it out. Easier to bring out in the winter, towing it on the snow, than to hand carry it out in the summer on the narrow hiking trails.
