“Last night a pine marten came into the cabin, which could have been problematic. I threw a small stick at a metal table leg and scared it away. That really freaked out the pine marten.” – Will Steger, March 31, 2018

Will describes the trapper’s cabin he’s been living in the last few days. Special thanks to Jason Cook.

    Hi Will, I was enthralled by your comments about the last few days of your challenging trek thru deep snow to the barrens! Your connection with the First Nation people! So inspiring, I wish I was along but I would not be able to keep up with the world class master traveler. Bravo my friend! Jim B’burg
