    Wink Heading up the Noatak River this weekend!

    Heading out with my scout group:



    Its Christmas guys! Lets have some fun.

    I am taking my scout group for a camp out up the Little Noatak River this weekend and I wanted to ask other dad out that way if you guys do the same? This is our first winter outing and it will be in one of those cabins we have been talking about in Noatak National Park. Any suggestions are appreciated!

    We are working with 1st year scouts, all 11 and 12 years old. I have had these guys for the past 4 years and it should be a good outing. I will take pics of what it looks like up here in the middle of winter. We have a grand total of 1 hour and 20 mins of daylight this time of year but we donít need no stinking daylight! We will be traveling up on snow machines about 30 miles from Kotz, takes about 35 mins mostly a crossed Kobuk Lake. Kobuk Lake is one huge body of water boys! We have to cover about 18 miles to get to the river.


    Pics to follow!

    Thats a long ride on Kobuk Lake...~LOL!~

    Taking the kids along, thats the BEST that can be done for sure! I take mine (and some spare sometimes), and they really love it.
    Best way to teach them.

    Good for you man. That is one lucky scout group! I will look forward to seeing some images.

    How about taking some traps/snares. I hear there's lynx around there.

    Are you staying in a subsistence cabin, like we are arguing about in another thread...............or a private cabin on an allotment?

    Default Lynx?

    I was up there last weekend and the rabits are all over the place so my bet is there are tons of Lynx in the countyr this year. Plenty of food!

    The cabin is private but is used by travlers as needed. We are all part of the same community!

    Take care guys!
