Mon Dec 13.. Just arrived at The Luce''s Lodge on a fuel run from the Deshka landing. The trail is good but caution is advised as always. I hauled four 55 gallon drums ( two skids with two drums each) and had no trouble. Don't stop for tea and crumpets in low areas or the smooth places--wait for a sand bar unless you know the river. Good trail and I was going 20 to 30 most of the way. The lower Yentna is a little bumpy for the first couple of miles. I will try to groom from here to Scary tree this week as well as put out some survey stakes.
See you soon---Dave Luce
