What to bring to Appledore as a bird person

You should not worry if you think you are bringing too much, but pack it so that no bag is too heavy. Each bag will have to be carried to the dorm from the dock (which unfortunately means up and over the rocks). You should also use waterproof bags or pack everything in trash bags inside your luggage. Usually there is not a problem with things staying dry, but if things did get wet it would be very unpleasant. You can bring more than one piece of luggage; pack a few smaller, lighter bags rather than one heavy trunk or giant duffel bag. BE SURE THAT EACH PIECE OF LUGGAGE (duffels, packs, etc.) WEIGHS LESS than 50lbs.; luggage over 50lbs. may be delayed in getting out to Appledore Island.
