10/22/14 - Last night was the Sawbill crew's annual pilgrimage to the Silver Bowl in Silver Bay, Minnesota for a night of pizza, beer and bowling. - Bill


Bowling nicknames: (l-r front) Bilbo, TC, NilsJohn, (l-r back) Puckerman, Hammypops, Cindy Lou Who, Mongo, Carlita.


Hammypops demonstrates proper form.


Mongo's patient mate, Mary Henry, who lives nearby, was kind enough to join us and share her score-keeping skills.


One of the many amenities at the Silver Bowl are the black lights that make an already challenging sport even more challenging.


TC is carefully watched by the owner's baby.


We didn't catch the baby's name, but she's obviously very comfortable in a bowling alley.

10/21/14 - Gene Dale Kalligher sent along this wonderful picture of Sawbill Canoe Outfitters and our refurbished canoes for sale after a recent visit. He has an excellent photography blog at: www.intotheoutside.com.


When I saw this picture I thought, "I want to live at this place... oh, wait..."

I snapped this shot of a couple embarking from the Sawbill Lake canoe landing a few days ago.


The weather in October can be lovely, but it can also be nasty. I always advise to plan for the worst and hope for the best. - Bill

10/12/14 - Lou's Shoes

Sun, 10/12/2014 - 7:44pm

10/12/14 - Our very own Cindy Lou Hansen got back today from a four day shoemaking class taught by Jason Hovatter at the North House Folk School in Grand Marais. "I can't even begin to tell you how many steps went into making these," she said as she showed off her beautiful new pair of shoes, "No pun intended!" - Peter


We're trying to convince Cindy to switch careers from canoe outfitting to shoemaking. She could call her business Lou's Shoes!
