* NOTE: Westwind is on a septic system. Certain types of personal care products can negatively impact the system. Please encourage your group members to use biodegradable, castile and other environmentally-friendly soaps and shampoos. Please discourage group members from using anti-bacterial soaps (the septic systems relies on healthy bacteria to run properly), body washes and other products high in fats and proteins.

PACKING TIPS:

Pack bags so they are easy to carry up steep hills to cabin. Two smaller bags work better than one large heavy bag; wheels don’t work on sand; duffel bags are better than suitcases.
Take steps to protect bags from weather during loading/crossing/unloading.
Food for group should be brought in sturdy boxes (paper bags disintegrate).
