Elmers or hot glue. Thats if its not collectable. Then go to a pro.

Go get a can of that Plasti-Dip. It should fix that book in a flash (after it dries.) Just smooth on a good layer on the area that needs to be bound. Or else, there's always duct tape! (Just kidding!).......T

Don't forget the clamps!!! The clamp rig should be a stout & inflexible piece of material, like angle steel, a bench-edge and two bar clamps. Thoroughly jog and carefully stack the pages (but not the cover) on the bench-edge (spine hanging out 1/4" or so) and clamp the angle down onto the stack tightly enough so the pages don't slip across each other, and make sure no pages are hidden inside where glue won't get to.
Brush glue (elmer's or wood glue) cleanly across the spine and let dry.
Unclamp and trim excess glue drips. Gently fan pages and check for loose ones.

You only have one shot at it with this method, so maybe practice a couple of times with an equally disheveled book of little value.

Good luck.

Call around to some of the quick print shops and ask them if they have a Fast Back Binder system, this is a system that takes a plastic material and melts it and binds your book. Tell them how many pages as some systems are only good for up to 90 sheets of paper. The binder has a colored tape for that profesional look when complete.

    • We had our permy site for 14 years. It was a blast the first 10. Neighbors changed, other things changed. We got tired of it and finally had enough. It was getting so with the yearly fee we felt we needed to be out there every weekend.   I still fish the lake in the fall but don't miss it. Now we can go to other places to do something different. With that said I'd do it all over again.    
    •   Well after inspecting, I'm really starting to lean that the blade mounts are bent. I can't find any pictures or anything......so I'm not sure. If these just take a normal shaver blade.....then they gotta be bent.....Anyone have any insite?
    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
    • Thanks guys. Looks like there are a few lakes to checkout.
