The guy in the tie?
Dam thats bad u saw that guy. i had to go back and re read what u wrote.
Have you priced that puppy lately?
Sheesh, I could almost buy a plane and fly there cheaper.
edit: Just did a quick check on pricing for the ferry. From Bellingham, WA to Ketchikan, AK is $544 one way. That doesn't include if you want a cabin. Trip takes 1 day, 13 hours. And price is "estimated".
They are pretty proud of that ferry ride, aren't they. I have been thinking about riding to Alaska and had wondered about taking the ferry. That has to be close to a buck a mile, with a big room with a view, called the deck. Guess I can push that out of my mind unless I win the lottery.
Glad that they fit and some one will get some use out of them.
Yeah thats my wife I have no idea why she puts up with me.
everyone sleepin in? :huh
Price fuel, tires, meals, and lodging for the Canadian portion of the AlCan Highway and you might rethink that. 1 day and 13 hours for 662 miles is a bit slow.
I was catching up on Colbatch's thread.
and I been FnO
Morning all. The gimp is feeling good so far. I got to make her breakie to keep her happy.
She can't shower for 2 days, and she is less than impressed about my elaborate preparations and accessories assembled for her sponge bath.
Good on you Tim. Now back to the pampering!
Haha...Tim, yeah it was probably the "accessories" that worried her. Glad she is doing better.
A friend of mine made the trip to Prudhoe Bay this summer. Took him 37 days, 10K miles, and $7K, roughly. His only gripe about going through Canada was not being able to bring a sidearm. And lack of cell phone coverage.
I'm not sure what a cabin costs on the ferry, but you can pitch a tent on deck. The downside to that is that you can't peg the tent down. The Milepost, a very informative publication is very helpful for making the trip to AK. Dr. Greg Frazier has also written a very good book about his travels up north. Riding to Alaska is the name of his book.
Steve, my buddy who went this past summer, rode a 1200GSA up there. He mounted Heidenau K60's on the bike. Ran the front one for the entire trip. Had a rear drop shipped to a shop in Anchorage and had it mounted when he got there. Seems like the largest expense per item/service was for lodging. He did camp some but bears kept him just a bit leery about camping very much.
And Cycle World currently has an article about a fella riding a Vespa scooter from FL to AK. That is an adventure for sure!
Cliff notes please..cautious of anything Joe post that requires FAP
I have looked at the ferry a couple times. With a suv and a trailer 4 kids and the wife and i it was over $3500.
Alaska Ferry... cabin or deck?
Last summer there was a nice article in one of the dual sport rags about a guy who rode thee ferry with his 11 yro boy. The slept on the deck and then rented cabins, in AK. If I find the article, I'll link it.
All the more reason to stay here!
