Thread: The birth of a fishin cabin

  1. #11

    Re: The birth of a fishin cabin

    The following summer of 2008 the flooring and the windows were in place.








    These last images are from the summer of 2009 and now the beloved cabin has all the windows, door, staircase, porch and the stove in place. So, we can now consider it ready for use although some kitchen stuff, a propane stove and some beds are to be added.

    Its been a long journey from that handshake to this piont, not to mention the long distance and all the planning to get everything to work out and not forgetting anything. I logged all the lumber for the place and sawed it on my saw-mill at the farmplace and drove it on the truck the 350 Kilometers up there, so it has been a few trips during these eight years. And I had 1,700 Kilometer back and forth from Stockholm each trip. But it sure feels good now when its done!

    Thanks for listening,

    That is amazing. Looks like a dream coming true, one log, one snowmobile trip at a time. Wow!

    Thanks guys.

    Well it IS a dream that has come true. Although not without efforts as you can understand. I was born up north but ended up in the city in the teen years when my family moved, so all this time I have been aiming for something like this.

    And as said, I have quite some fishing to catch up with. This thing took about all the time I spent there the last eight to ten years. Yes, Ill probably have some good fishing stories to tell later on. :D

    Yes, there are Browns, Artic Char and Grayling. Also Pike, Perch and Whitefish further downstream in the lakes on lower altitude. Fishing gets pretty good when you get off the main roads, which you rather want to do in the summer during tourist season. Easy access draws people. Not that it would be crowded, but there are other fishermen at the easy spots.
    As for wildlife youll find brown bear, grey wolf, wolverine and lynx as bigger predators. Lots of raindeer. Moose have some population also.
    Ive been to the Iliamna area in Alaska and I must say there werent too much of a difference in terms of fauna (salmon runs of course not included) although this country has been explored for several hundred years so its not exactly the frontier. Also, all the speices grow smaller over this way.
