What to expect at Outpost

Part of the beauty of being out on the Zumwalt is that you will be off the modern day grid. But that also means you will be an hour from any medical facility, town, or store. Cell connectivity is spotty if at all, and there is no wi-fi access. Please double-check that you have all necessary prescription drugs, several layers of clothing, sun protection, rain gear, and a good warm hat. Bring paper and pen since there is limited electricity (solar). A suggested pack list is included below. We also have an assumption of risk form that you will be asked to complete upon your arrival at Fishtrap.
