9/17/06 – We received this nice email this morning:
Hi there,
I just wanted to drop a line and let you know how much I enjoyed staying in the Sawbill campground. I usually stay at Baker Lake so this was a nice change. I emailed some pictures I took when I went out on Sawbill Lake in one of your canoes with my Yorkie. She had a blast, had never been in a canoe before so I was surprised to see that she was very relaxed during our 3 hour adventure. She even has a little portaging under her belt now as we went to Alton Lake as well.
Without giving you my life history I will just say I have cared for my husband, who is quadriplegic, for the past 17 years. Things have taken a great toll on me lately and my trips up the Sawbill Trail this summer have allowed me to “escape” into my own world of peace and tranquility as I am happiest when I’m out in the woods. The only problem I run into is that I never want to leave!! Your staff was friendly as always and helpful. I look forward to visiting you again soon.
Pookie says to say hi to Mary Alice, Homer and Izzy!
Take care,
Melanie Vittitow and Pookie Bear
