Hi Everyone,
  Our trip will be here before you know it, so I hope that you are all gearing up. I am including the gear list once again so that you can be sure to have what you need. I have added 2 things to the list - one is a small lock to use at the lodge to lock up valuables. The other is 1 or 2 plastic containers to pack your lodge lunches into to cut down on plastic bag waste. This plastic ware could also double as your plate/bowl while out backpacking.
  Please let me know your travel plans - how and approximately when you will be arriving. Remember that there is a loading zone off of the main road, but it is still a 5 minute walk from there to the lodge. Don't worry about being a "fashion plate". It's OK to wear the same clothes a couple of days running. Current weather has been highs in the low 70's, lows in the 40's. Don and I are arriving there early next week to scope out our route, and if I can get a connection, I will try to send out an update once we are there.

See you soon!
