First I need to tell you that as of this posting date, Boundary Pass Traders is still in business selling T-shirts along the road to Stuart Island Lighthouse. For those of you that don't know, Boundary Pass Traders is a local family business, they have two unmanned sales kiosks complete with fresh water.(after hiking up the hill you will appreciate a drink) They sell screen printed t-shirts on the honor system. One booth, (more like an opening in the trees that resembles an upscale homeless camp) is next to the schoolhouse at the top of the long grueling hill coming up from Reid Harbor. The other and newer location is at the intersection of the road coming from the county dock. This means if you walk from the state park you will stroll by both, but if you walk from the county dock at Prevost Harbor, you will only see the one. Moving along - You make your choice from ten or more San Juan Island themed shirts, and then when you get home, mail them a check in the provided envelope. (or pay online) that's right, they trust you! We picked out an adult size replacement shirt for our youngest son, (think "Pirates of the San Juans") to replace his stretched out, frayed, and faded child size he picked out many years ago.

Here is the deal. Lots and lots of people that you know have web sites (like this one) and advertise products. When a click is registered or a product is ordered the web site gets paid. (same as boat dollars)
For instance someone clicked an Amazon advertisement on this site and bought a $25.00 item, since they started here (this site) and ultimately bought something, this site got about a buck (boat buck)
So, if you are planning to buy something from Amazon anyway (You know they sell everything in the world) why not give someone the free money. Go to your favorite site first,(this site) then click an Amazon ad, then buy anything you want, it does not need to be what is advertised.
Now go tell everyone you know to come here first -- to order anything Amazon sells.
