    Would love to but duty (work) calls. Kinda liked it the way it was the two times we were there. Once during the week with noone around and the second time on a weekend with a few more people in town. Personally to me crowds suck. To each their own.

    We ate here north of Whitehorse both trips. Good food. Giant cinnamon rolls.

    Alaska highway has been closed for a few days with no set time to be reopened. We are taking a boat ride to stay on schedule.

    We had about 15 minutes of sun on our 2 1/2 day ferry trip. Most of the time it looked more like this. On the postitive side we did see whales, porpoise, bears, eagles, and a killer whale.

    The sign says the evergreen state. I think it should be named the ever wet state.[​IMG]

    Hey JIMMIEEEE
    I thought for sure you would have to ship some of that gear home from that overloaded bike, but it looks like you hauled it all the way home. That was a great trip, but I'am already planning the trip for next summer. It will be shorter and you will not have to over pack.:rofl:rofl:rofl:rofl:rofl:rofl

    We met these guys on the ferry coming back from Skagway. They seemed like a great bunch of guys except one liked to go jogging with grizzly bears, one enjoyed running UPS drivers off the road for some unknown reason , and the other guy liked draging his laptop behind his bike. I hope to run into them again, maybe on a trip to Labrador next year.
