Wednesday May 27th and Thursday May 28th!

Wednesday May 27th - First trip to town to pick up crew. We have a total of 6 crew arriving, 3 returning guides and 3 new people, including the new chef, a server and prep chef and the bartender!

Seemed like a good crew, pleasant trip out although it was rainy, very rainy while loading up. Once out to the Lodge we unloaded and everyone got directed to their rooms and settled in. First dinner in the "crew room" tonight and it was fantastic - Nicky really did a great job. Baked chiken, mashed potatoes, sweet corn and a great salad!

Thursday May 28th - Early start, breakfast in the crew room. The down to the tackle room to get gear assigned to the guides boats. John (Axman) and I loaded line on enough of the new reels for everyone, so we are ready for the rest of the guides to show up!!

I made another run to town to pick up another crew member and also beer and soft drinks and bottled water for the bar! It was a huge load...boat was really loaded down! New crew enjoyed the ride out, killer whales playing and jumping on the way out, made the trip special!

Everyone settled in another fantastic dinner - baked snapper, sauteed vegetables, salad, rice and fresh biscuits.

Art and Dewey make a barge fuel run tomorrow for diesel fuel about 6000 gallons or so. I make another run into town for crew and some more supplies.

Took another good picture of Nikko our 2 year old Karelian Bear Dog - see attached and one of Dewy emptying shrimp traps in the rain!!
