Re: TR: late July 2019 - McCargoe to RH with a 6-year-old

Wow! Sounds like a great trip. We stayed in a Windigo cabin with our family, including 5 year old. Maybe next year we'll aim for some backpacking.

Re: TR: 7/2019 Windigo Camper Cabin with kids

1) Barge with excavator and concrete blocks to build new store's foundation. 2) The cabin is not super private, as no shade on door. I meant to mention the lock: electronic 4-digit keycode that they give you, changed between guests, with a master passcode as well. From the inside, lock can be diseng...

TR: 7/2019 Windigo Camper Cabin with kids

Re: Family trip planning

Since I asked about Thermacell, this might be useful to others:
