  1. The Big Spruce

    So many times people have said to me, "I wish I had a place like that where I could just go and relax like you do". I've told them the truth, that being that if that;s what you really want there are plenty of them available. They are called Lodges and for anywhere from 3500 to 6200 per week you can go to a wilderness surrounding, fish, and at days end put your feet up and relax while you reflect on the day.
