Ephrata, WashingtonTomorrow we catch a JetBlue flight out of Seattle for 11 days in Alaska. We have packed one carry on suitcase and one backpack with clothes, fish pole, toiletries, cameras, phones, chest waders, a spinning reel, lures and a fish net....
We're meeting my cousins, Sue and Danny Robinson, and their spouses. Les and Doris to explore Homer, Soldatna, Seward, Talkeetna and Denali National Park. Mrs. Phed, Danny and Doris are taking a bear flight over Cook's inlet to a remote lake one day, while Les, Sue and myself angle for sockeye in the Kenai River.. We're doing the 14 hour bus ride into Denali and an eight hour boat ride on Prince William Sound out od Seward.
We've been a lot of places lately without a blog. Flathead Lake, Coeur D'Alene, Spokane and Ephrata, Washington. No blogs in Alaska. I'm packing too lightly for the Notebook or Ipad....In fact, this is blog number 998 over the last ten years....I'm thinking seriously about retiring for good when I hit 1,000.
