Some Questions

What else is lurking out there in the cold water?

How long did these beams and logs and trunks float around the lake?

Where did they come from?

How can I transport them to Upper Chester? Helicopter?

1. Evil
2. 100-125 years is a fair guess
3. Various Duluth or regional harbor structures over time -- including the ruins of the breakwater walls in Duluth's outer harbor -- would be decent guesses. The lake has been eating harbor structures up and down the shore during that timeframe. My money's on Duluth outer harbor structures; it was quite built up back in the day and all that wood is still out there
4. Helicopter

Things in Lake Superior: Let's not forget all the preserved corpses dating back to anywhere from 14,000 BC to last week including but not limited to crooked Polish police officers from Chicago in the 1930s. One hundred and fifty nine thousand tons of all different manner of plastic including but not limited to Super One plastic grocery bags. Alien Mothership the size of four football fields. We know there's a jet fighter that vanished off the radar over Sault Ste Marie in the 1950s chasing one. It'd be good to find that. Maybe some world-record agates. A viking sword or two. Some tomahawks wrapped in beaded leather. A 140-lb. Mayan talisman made of pure U.P. copper. A 1974 Cadillac El Dorado with half a million dollars in the trunk. And a load of whitefish and herring with the occasional six-foot sturgeon swimming circles around it. That's about it. The original fur trader post on Park Point isn't even marked, save for a pile of Camel butts. 

"Reports that say that something hasn't happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know."
