Bob and Allie along with their grandson Sean (always nice to have a young sherpa along!) plus Jan and I headed out for the area carting along 2 collapsed thunder boxes. On the drive up, in honour of the job at hand I decided to form the triple "C" company and inducted the rest of the crew at the put in into the organization with myself as the president and head installer. The Chiniguichi Crapper Company was born! We packed our canoes and headed off down the lake feeling rather "full" of ourselves, the new company and life in general - always a good thing to get away and out into the bush!

We loaded the box and tools and headed out after breakfast for the 2nd campsite. The wind was already up again and it promised to another windy day. The 2nd site had a pretty healthy crop of blueberries growing on and around it and the after the box was installed enough berries for a good blueberry pancake breakfast for tomorrow was gathered up. It was a bumpy ride as we had to paddle across wind and whitecaps back to camp.
