Mark and Lynn,

Jay Johnson here. Just wanted to update you on the boy (Davis Neeper) who injured his knee a couple of weeks ago. He's doing well and resting at home. A little bored I think due to inactivity but doing well just the same. Most if not all of the swelling has gone down and the wound is healing very nicely. And I believe the pain has resided as well.  He is on 24/7 antibiotics thru a tap-line until the end of July so that's got him slowed down a little too.

Again, we really appreciate all that you did for us. We'd not have been able to provide the care we did without the responsiveness and willingness to help which you and your staff provided.  Personally, while I missed not getting to take advantage of the entire trip we had planned, I enjoyed getting to know you and your staff better. Any time someone asks for a recommendation, send 'em my way!

Thanks again,

Jay Johnson, Troop 828


Thanks for the outstanding support that you gave us during our recent trek.  We all enjoyed the hospitality and the efficient service and the attention to detail that you put into all the facets of our adventure.

Special thanks to Mike Behrens who tipped us off to CBO.  We had never used CBO before but we are looking forward to booking at least one crew for next June.

We took off in a hurry as we had to drive many hours, I assume all is well for the check-out.  Let me know if you needed anything else.

Regards and sincere THANKS!!!

Mark, Lynn, Janelle and Staff,

Just wanted to send you a note to let you know that all the Scouts and adults commented that they had a great time last week regardless of the weather. You and your staff were great and helped make our trip a success. The bus trip back was alive with stories of bear sightings, missing toilet paper, phone calls back to you store for directions about beaver dams and other discoveries on the water. The rain just adds to the experience. We all had wished there were less rain but that is just the luck of the draw. I know there will be a lot of stories told again tonight at our troop meeting! Thanks again for your help and patience.
