Friends and visitors...
We are on the verge of another season :
Have to admit, there are times this past year when we weren't sure if we would still be here today. Hurricanes, fires, lost jobs, the passing of close friends, health issues, legal issues, and just plain living issues.
But that's what makes the camp so special and worth it all. As each one of those maladies arose, they were soon replaced by the beautiful sunsets, the newly completed improvement projects, a better job, new staff/guests/friends to soften the losses, continued hope on the health front, and a reassuring faith that living life by taking the high and right road will get you where you want to go every time.
Sadie - Camp dog
As many of you know already by calling, our manager for the last four years, keeper of the dogs and general good guy, Mike Upton, retired from Stegbone's on September 30th, 2004 and passed away a month later from cancer. He was laid to rest in the Naval Cemetery at NAS Pensacola. Mike portrayed the laid-back but guest friendly attitude of Stegbone's as well as anyone could, he will be missed.
Cabin #3 is now pretty well complete, with a new paint job to tie it into the rest of the camp. We have a newly paved county road from Satsuma to Welaka, and also down from the Stegbone's road sign to our entry gate. We have cleaned up the corner property leading into the camp, all the necessary repairs and maintenance projects are complete, and we are looking forward to a full season from March 1 to mid-June. Reservations are above those of last year.
We look forward to your visits and wish all the best.
Catch ya later.
Terry and Jim
