I took it from Skagway to Bellingham in 1994 and I know it has gone up but $1200? I just checked and found from Haines to Prince Rupert for $345 (counting my 65+ discount.) Think that's the way I'll come back.
PS, I was 50 when I made my first AK MC ride, just twice your age. I applaud you for doing it while you were young AND taking your wife along. Super photos too, I might have to invest in a digitial SLR!
Thanks.. I used the Yaesu for weather, otherwise I didn't bother to check any repeaters. The ferry was $1200 for the two of us, Bellingham to Haines. It was worth it to see all the great coastline.
