ironj,

We're planning essentially the same trip for sometime next summer, and thought after school was back in session (mid- to late August and into September) might be the best option...certainly for fewer crowds. Please let us know, either through posts or by PM what you are finding, where you stay, what the weather is like, etc.

Thanks in advance, and have a safe, enjoyable trip.

Mike

I never brought any bear spray,but Cabellas and/Bass Pro Shop come to mind as possible places to get it.

They may also have binoculars,but Walmart and Best Buy could have them also. I got a good pair that you can borrow if you could come by the house to pick them up.

Glad to hear that - have a safe and enjoyable trip.

I brought some Elephant Repellant spray there - works great I haven't seen any elephants around the house since I used it.
