Have you and Tina given any thought to joining Tom and Kay on their next trip to SE AK?
Ken, we would love to do that but our timing is not yet set. Our "year of departure" depends entirely on my 103 year old mother-in-law. We don't want to be somewhere up in the boontoolies out of radio and cell range and have something happen to her. Tina would never forgive herself if that happened, and I wouldn't forgive myself.
She's in pretty good health but we can see that her health is declining. We're enjoying having her around so much that we don't want to lose her.
I have a rough itinerary planned for the summer after she passes and it will include waters from the Tacoma/Olympia area up about as far north as Campbell River. It will be from about mid-June until some time near the end of September or mid-October, depending on when the storms start rolling in.
I get almost as much enjoyment out of planning a trip like this as I do taking it. I've had a TON of fun doing the planning.
