Jay-
So honored to have your mention of our making acquaintance. It was a special time to have the opportunity to visit twice during your voyage.

Your voyage blog report is outstanding as to what a couple are able to accomplish with an itinerary as vast as yours. The whole voyage reads like a “Bucket List” successfully achieved. Congratulations.


I trust that you found the welcome mat out at the various out post and major towns visited. I was pleased to note that you voyage included most of the cargo ship loading locations that employed me during the “Great Timber Times”. Wonderful places and wonderful Native folks to work with.

My wife, learning of our visits, joins me in inviting you to our abode should you elect to venture this way again in the future. You have our number.

Best regards and continued adventures.
Acquaintance,
Al
