[QUOTE=Alaskan Sea-Duction;454078]OK you all don't get your panties in a bunch, it was just a paste and copy.

Don't tell me I gotta start wearing underware again, left those on the big boat when I retired.
Oh well, pour another one and chill!

Having retired in May from the US Gov't, I've discovered the pleasure of spending a drizzly morning in my robe, drinking coffee, and reading this string in its entirety! Looks like your trip has been going well, Tom.

Due to other commitments, we won't be heading north until later in July...next year, we plan to get an earlier start...haven't been north of Nanaimo yet.

Thanks for an enjoyable read, Tom & Kay. Next, it's on to your blog!

Calm seas & fair weather, Vic

"plan to get an earlier start"

Those are golden words for a summer trip to SE Alaska. Few that have'nt made the trip realize how far it is. April 15 is a good departure date. Better spend some time in port or at anchor along the way. And BC is in many ways nicer than AK. Stop at places like Duncanby Landing and an inlet or two not just Shearwater.

For those that are familar w the Seattle to SE AK think leaving now is late.

Agree, Eric...

I've lived in AK, so the allure of cruising there isn't strong. We love the San Juan & Gulf Islands, and have spent much time there, especially in Canada.

I'd like to see Princess Louisa, at least once, and perhaps get as far as the Broughtons...not much interest in venturing further.

This year, we plan to revisit our favorite places south of Nanaimo, due to time constraints.

It's all good...

Vic

Well the cell signal sucks here in Wrangle. 5 hours later I managed to kick out 4 entries on the blog. Ketchikan, Chapters 21, 22 and last but not least Wrangell. Sorry guys, but you will have to go to the blog for these. Our next stop is Petersburg. Here are a few pics to wet your reading.

The blog is updated with Chapters 23, 24, 25 and Petersburg. We have made it to Juneau! We are home. Spending about 4-5 days here. Taking Ferry to Skagway to ride the Yukon steam locomotive on July 4th. Then we will start heading south. Dream come true!!!

Congrats on your trip! Glad to hear you made it "Home". Look forward to hooking up down south, and remind us to show you the pics of the Spirit Bear. Got as close as 30 feet, was another bucket item. Safe travels, but enjoy your days.

Cheers

You did it! Two months (give or take a day or so) from Portland to AK. Not a bad time, especially considering the few days you lost waiting for parts.


Nice going guys! You Da Man...and WoMan!

Hey folks we made it to our destination, Skagway Alaska! We did cheat a little. We left ASD in Juneau and took the fast ferry. 2.5 hours @40kts versus 10-11 hours with nasty following seas and wind. WE MADE IT!!!!

It appears using my phone i cannot download a picture....

I have Updated the blog with Juneau and Skagway. We have traveled 1562 miles to Juneau Alaska in our boat. Tomorrow, we start the track back home. It has been such a great time. Mixed feeling about tomorrow, but we now have a list of places we want to explore and revisit!
