I've stayed at the lean to and found it to be a pleasant place. It's remote enough so that there's little traffic. You may have visitors passing through from Saginaw Bay, but the "full occupancy...

Peter Hornbeck used to work with the Kelty Tioga pack for carry adaptation. I'm not sure that he still does, but it's worth a call. I bought a virtually new KNUPAK on Craigslist a couple of years...
