Fw: [cdt-l] Resupply at Frontier Town, MT, near MacDonald Pass?

Ken and I just returned from scoping out the CDT for next year's thru-hike.
We had planned dinner at Frontier Town and it seems to be permanently closed
with a locked gate across the road and weeds growing. We asked our waitress
in Helena if she knew what was happening, but she didn't know.

We also discovered that the post office in Gibbonsville is closed and were
told that North Fork was  the next PO down 93.

We saw 6 thru-hikers in GlacierNP: Drew (Semper Fi, who we met last year on
the PCT) who has completed NM and flipped to Glacier south. He was hiking
with two other guys. We also saw Jonathan Ley who we know from his PCT web
journal. He was hiking with Kevin and a woman.

We're envious, but our turn is coming.

Gotta hike,
