Re: God's Pocket Situation

I'm looking forward to hearing more about this other operator that you found working browning pass. Any idea what sort of accomodations they offer? What what I found online it sounds a bit like the Nanaimo charters which run day boats and then you find a hotel onshore. I would like to know more too...

My homeowner's/auto insurance (USAA) also offers travel insurance, so I use them. I've never needed it, but they've been excellent when I've needed it for my vehicle.
