Very interesting story. I fished for a number of times with Thousand Lakes Outposts at their Kearns Lake Cabin. There was a log cabin built in the 1960's by an American Couple who were there to get away from the Vietnam War. The cabin is run down ,but still there about 100 yards behind the camp. There are still lots of old stuff in the cabin Maybe someone who has gone to Kearns for many years can add a lot more on this than me

Great story and very well told. I also hope the MNR does not remove the remains of that cabin and boat. I don't think I'll ever be there, but I like knowing it's there.

There is a old trappers cabin on the way to VNP in Minnesota. It's currently occupied but I often wonder the stories that cabin could tell. A bygone era for sure that few of us could handle.

Thanks for the post.
