"Far too often those adventurers have more money than brains."

That's what I was getting at.

"There should be a procedure in place whereby anyone attempting to traverse the NWP should have to post a hefty bond to cover the cost of having their butts pulled out of there by the Coast Guard. The bond would be repayable only after they've traversed."

Good idea.

all rescued way down south and often at short notice. Xmas / New Year seems to be the period for these things to occur !!!
