First Leg to Great Bear
I plan on making it to Lake Bonaparte in my first season of Ark travel. That's going to put me within easy reach of the St. Lawrence River for the next leg of the journey to Great Bear.
But for that first Winter out, I'll stay at the lake until the first couple inches of snow stick, then pull overland and up the Oswegatchie to Ed Demond's Panther Creek property.
I'll stay though the winter there and help Ed with the sugaring. Then I'll haul off, down river before the black flies and no-see-ums get too wicked, even in the the spray of X Falls. But not before we have had a lot of time around the stove with plenty of chance to talk things over.
