Re: Government Shutdown

both comments are appreciated. Good point about the lodges being supported by the Ranger. I guess the question is would the Park Service, if closed allow sea plane, Vogaguer, Queen still take folks out there.

Re: Windigo Cabins

I have also been calling for last week to confirm my water taxi and lodge reservations and phone just rings and rings. I did call IR NP at Houghton and they were of no help, which I understand, concessions are private entities and such, the response was maybe caused by delay in getting out to island...

Padded Cells

Outdoor Research used to make padded cells to carry stoves, water filters, etc. They no longer carry them. Any ideas where they can be found now?
