Does anybody know if you can ship box of gear using Post Office from Rock Harbor Lodge. I know you can mail letters.

I don't see why not, as long as it already has the appropriate postage attached and meets postal requirements. I doubt Rock Harbor or Windigo are set up to weigh parcels and sell postage. It is actually the Voyageur that is the agent for the U.S. postal service. They're sort of like the local mail-person. You could probably prearrange parcel pickup at other Voyageur stops as well. Contact the Voyageur office for confirmation and details.

I have had resupply parcel delivered to me by Voyageur, but not knowing how much parcel would weigh to ship back home not quite sure how I would do that. I think I will talk to my local PO and see if I can buy postage for a 25LB parcel for future use. We will see.

You might call the concessionaire and check with them.
