Is this looking roughly westerly? In other words, Minnow Bucket and Oak Ridge are on the bottom left side?

Not quite (unfortunately), but I haven’t heard any financials from them since to see if it worked....

I knew the lane north of 154 was narrow, but DANG, eh? South appears I was right that it is much more forgiving (until you get closer to the west shoreline.

The lake filled in 1985 so I think it's about 1983 when the photo was taken by David Kelly

If you remember that my Champion 221 Elite friend, do you, by any chance, remember the location of the "sugar shack" at the mouth of Ray Branch?

I was crossing that bridge when there was no water in sight. And had many a good dinner at EB's tired and sunburned. Good times. And your maps are widely known as the best available. Thanks for the pic. Good memories from long ago.
