12/23/14 - Happy holidays to the entire Sawbill extended family!

It is absolutely gorgeous here right now with 14"+ of snow on the ground and the forest draped with a festive layer of snow. - Bill

Deputy of Outfitter Security, Roy and Chief of Outfitter Security, Phoebe, use the fresh snow to track terrorist squirrel activity in the wilderness.

12/16/14 - After a few days of melting, winter has returned in the most pleasant way here at Sawbill. We now have an honest foot of snow on the ground, the trees are snow covered and the lake is frozen solid. It is enough to put you in the holiday spirit!

12/4/14 - Our phones and internet were down all day yesterday, thanks to a fiber optic cable break in Tofte. It's the price we pay for living in paradise!

Amy and Dave Freeman have finished their epic canoe trip from Ely, Minnesota to Washington D.C. For more information on what they are up to, you can listen to this week's edition of the Cook County West End News or go to the Paddle to DC website.

12/3/14 - Adam West, former Sawbill crew member, brought this cool video to our attention. It was filmed in August, 2011 on South Temperance Lake, which is a day's paddle from Sawbill. - Bill

12/1/14 - Sawbill's own, Adam Hansen, now an attorney, had a case heard by the Supreme Court of the United States today. For you legal nerds, the case is Nickols v. Mortgage Bankers Association.

Former Sawbill crew members at the Supreme Court today: (l to r) Max Wilson 2000 - 2003; Adam Hansen 1980 - 2005; Nathan Ter Beest 2000 - 2003.

We had a visit this weekend from Tom and Margit Berg, long time Sawbill canoeists and friends. After coffee and conversation, Tom and Margit took a walk on Sawbill Lake. They were kind enough to send along these pictures of Phoebe (Chief of Outfitter Security) and Roy (Deputy Chief of Outfitter Security), who were thrilled to accompany the Bergs on their hike.


Happy dogs - coming and going.
