    Both excellent ideas. I put a call in to the park ranger to check availability on the cabins. Looks like there are 2 and each sleeps 4. I left a message and will let everyone know when I hear back.

    Nooksack thats football right? ;)

    I would be into a hut if there is enough interest to make it worthwhile. Sound like acool spot for a group.

    I am currently sitting in the 100+ people cue to get my dam passport renued. Realized last night that it had expired in dec.

    Eric. I am planning on arriving friday the 20th sometime in the afternoon. So see about 2 cabin days? Less stuff to bring if possible.

    Canecaster,

    The Adirondack hut is just a 3-sided shelter, not a real cabin. You still have to bring a thermarest and bedroll of some kind, but they're much more convenient than pitching a tent in the rain. Makes for a nice sleeping shelter and covered eating area near the camp fire.

    Good luck on the passport. I had to renew mine last year, and it took about 2 weeks.

    James,

    This looks like a perfect opportunity to see more of your work and take them for a test drive! I'm hoping I can make the trip.

    Thanks,
    Scott T.

    I'll have to confirm my attendance for sure but I'd be willing to pitch in for a cabin or hut if there is space available.

    Thanks,
    Scott T.

    If you guys want to rent anything I would suggest you get on it. The Skagit is full of eagle gawkers right now and they likely have most everything reserved up.

    Thanks,

    James,

    I think all Fred Meyer stores sell fishing licenses. There must be one in B'ham near the freeway.

    Thanx SG.
    Just checked it out and there are 2-3 just off I-5 in Bellingham so that should work out.
    Cheers for that.

    I have begun to realize that, haha. I was just full of zeal after staring at a step by step 11'6" 6wt build on clarks, and then seeing this post here! I think I am going to build a couple of single handers and go from there.

    I'm interested Eric. I thought about checking on a cabin as I don't have all of my camping gear at hand due to "winter" but if they are reasonably protected it's better than tent camping.

    Thanks,

    Eric,

    I was going to call and reserve a cabin or Adirondack today, but got too tied up with work. Tomorrow morning I'll try and get one.
