Hi again Shawn:

Don't worry about me, I have done some trips in the 10 000 Islands.  I'm geocacher, so I'm somewhat familiar with the terrain and "bugs".   How must is the cost for parking the car in the marina?  I usually parking the car overnight at the ranger station for free, but any place is OK for me. Thanks, Pavel.
