Portage Train Stop
Have reserved the entire campground at Spencer Glacier for the Solstice! Campground holds 25 and has firepit, platforms, etc. Cost is $100 which we'll split by attendees. I have my 9 year old grandson coming so I'd love to get a couple kids.
Of course, will be fun for adults to so all are welcome! Experienced packrafters may wish to make float out to road, but I won't be doing that since I have child on board. If you are interested in rafting out please state in RSVP so those folks can organize and coordinate car-drop.
There are things to do at the glacier: Hike (free) float and ice climb (for a fee unless you have your own gear) I am planning to rent a raft or IC and paddle the lake. Train is $56 from Portage for Ak residents, I'll add the link at the bottom.
If you are going to be on water PFD, float bad and whistle are mandatory.
Plan potluck campfire dinner Fri night
No shows really bum me out so please only RSVP if you really want to come, make your train reservations promptly, and change your RSVP the minute you discover you can't come. Don't forget to tell railroad you are Ak resident so you get discount!
