Windigo Store supply availability- August

Post by thesneakymonkey » Sun Sep 09, 2018 8:28 am

Are you curious what the Windigo store offers for supplies around August? Here is an up to date video of their contents as of this year 2018.

Video was shot in early August. I see a few questions here are fuel availability and such so I thought this might be helpful to film.

They also have pizzas (basically heated up frozen pizza). Your choice of pepperoni, sausage, or cheese. They were pretty good after a few days hiking ;)

This is also where you purchase your tokens for laundry and showers. You can see the prices at 11:18 in this video here: https://youtu.be/nUluvT79rRo?t=11m18s

Also maybe helpful to note when we started our hike in Rock harbor the gift shop there was WELL stocked as well. They had upwards of 10 canisters of fuel.

R.H. store was still stocked this week 9/9 (although I didn't count).

I read somewhere that the Lodge was open an extra week this year, essential through the end of this week (9/9-9/15). Historically they close at the end of the week of Labor Day.

Yes, and it didn't appear to be slowing down.
