Once again, the Obbie-Lane family spent a restful, memorable week at The
Cabin. We appreciated the recent improvements (Nice grill! Thanks for the
extra counter space in the kitchen. And the improved trail signs and blazes,
while no longer necessary for us veterans, are a big plus for newcomers.)
Mostly, we got what we crave: peace and quiet and all the sights and sounds
(and lack of sounds) that we've come to love at your place after six visits.
The berry picking was pretty good, but we envy those who will be there later
in August (best patches are on West Path just below the rope ladder, in the
Logging Camp, and on East Path below the Ebenezer path). The trails to
Ebenezer (on both sides of the summit) are getting overgrown, but are well
marked and worth the effort.
Thanks for the honey -- it was wonderful -- and the biscuit mix. You were
right, it was too hot to bake, but we did it anyway because the biscuits are
too good to miss.
Until next time...
--Mark, Nancy, Rae, and Dale (and Shadow)

I hope you haven't forgotten us. We've never stopped thinking about Four
Peaks. We moved from the NYC area last summer to a new home in the Finger
Lakes, and it was just too crazy (and expensive) to take a vacation. This
year we've put off making reservations until we were sure we could make
it. We would like to reserve The Cabin for one week starting
August 6. We will have our dog Shadow with us, along with our two children.
Please let us know as soon as possible if we can have The Cabin then, and
what kind of deposit you'll require. Thanks -- we look forward to seeing
Mark Obbie and Nancy Lane

Thanks for your most welcome email.
No. Of course I haven't forgotten. But I was worried. Very glad to hear you're ok.
I'm fine (and happy). Divorce settled (finally).
Look for reservation letter to follow.
I'll recontact you again soon (traveling today).

We're looking forward to our upcoming visit to the Cabin. It's Saturday
afternoon August 6 through Saturday morning August 13, correct? Just checking.
We've had a tough summer, with too much work and too much sadness: my father died on July
5. He'd been ill with cancer for a long time -- his illness was a chief reason why we moved away
from the NY City area to get back home -- but it doesn't make it any easier. We're looking
forward to the quiet comforts of your beautiful property. We would like a sun shower, if you still
lend them out. Let me know if you don’t and we’ll try to find one somewhere. See you soon.

Thanks for your email.
I'm very sorry to hear about your Dad. I can tell you, for me,
that was the most serious loss I ever experienced. My Dad was
my role model, my guide when I was young and my cheering section
through it all. If you're like me, you'll just have to get used
to doing it alone.
Showers? Look at http://4peaks.com/fobath.htm The portable electric
showers are an uptodate solution to bathing in the bush. I assure
you, you'll never think of sunshower again. (I do have one in my
shed and will find it for you, though.)

Thanks for the info about the new showers. They sound fine. And thanks for
your comments about my dad, and yours.
