As a Frequent visitor to Wrangell and the Stikene, both on charter and private trips, I would hope that the Forest Service would keep the rules as they are. The limit on comercial excursions is needed, and needs to be enforced! I would be totally PO'd if a troup of tourists tromped up to a Forest servic cabin I had rented, with their guide, and proceede to use the out house that my group and I had provisioned. It is a liitle far, if I had a boat, to run to Wrangell for TP.
However I do not feel that private and/or family groups should be limited. I was at the input meeting at the Nolan Center in Wrangell. As a former resident of the Owens valley I can understand why the local people feel threatened, and rightly so, by the Forest Service.
I think the Forest Service would gain much more credibility and cooperation if they would ENFORCE the rules now in place instead of turning a blind eye when an "18 pack" puts in and disembarks at the tubs or other locations treasured by those who live and play in Wrangell and Petersburg.
