I am still struggling with the idea of how much stuff to pack. I tend to be very simple and travel light so I'm afraid of under packing. Do you really drag all the toiletries, laundry soap etc with you?? I know it would be expensive in the park but the idea of shipping it also seems just as expensive and a waste of resources. I'm not bringing a car so its either ship ahead or purchase on arrival for me. I'm assuming that even if I don't get out of the park I will be able to find shampoe and deodorant? Some of you with more experience please give me some thoughts on this subject.

Go to the post office and get a flat rate box; weight doesn't matter. Cram it full of your heavy toiletries and anything important to start off with and mail it to yourself. That way you know you are covered until you find out when the rides go to the store or meet someone to ride with. It might be too hectic with orientation, training, etc. to get that stuff right away. Make sure to toss in a pint of vodka-with a bottle of advil duct taped to it- also, it mixes with anything and a is a great ice breaker. You can barter with it too. :) And one more thing that I swear I'm gonna do every year but never do; take a carton of light smokes and a carton of menthols and sell those bad boys for $5 a pop. That will get you more votes than kissing babies. REMEMBER; JUST MAKE SURE YOUR ESSENTIALS ARE COVERED WHEN YOU FIRST GET THERE AND NEVER, EVER TYPE IN ALL CAPS.
Enjoy your summer and come see me at Lake McDonald once all of your new smoking friends buy you a car for being so awesome.
