where are the pix of the cabin and the lake at this Waldon Pond?Well boys here is a fire filled with VIRGIN Minnesota white pine.
My area was logged in 1912. 900,000 board feet of lumber was left submerged in the lake where my cabin is located due to an early spring that year.
Here's a firebox full of white pine cut 104 years ago, fished out of the lake and dried for three years.
Don't worry. It's not salvageable for other uses as wood submerged in shallow lakes deteriorates more quickly so although it works as firewood there is no strength to this wood so it's worthless as lumber.
