Hey, Dan - gonna miss ya at the RTE, butt if I could, I'd trade ya places in a heartbeat. Coupla more suggestions - do a float plane ride to the Taku Lodge outta Juneau, if you dock and have the time to set it up. Those planes are kept in top-notch condition; got straight pipes on 'em, I think; and the pilots are a one-of-a-kind breed. Very safe, and a thrill to fly in. Cheryl would much rather land on water than on runways - smoothe as glass. Smoked salmon on the outdoor grill is served at the lodge while you enjoy the scenery and the active glacier that you feel you could throw a rock and hit --- butt can't!!
And if you go into Skagway, take the 'Scenic Railroad' trip, to the border and back, that closely follows the Gold Rush trail - considering the time frame of construction, and the tools and equipment required, it's just a wonder!!!
Enjoy, Dan. I know you will. Take many, many pics AND videos. Holler when you get back to Houston and I'd sure like to meet up and listen to your experience - show and tell, as it were!!
(Hey, Jay - sorry for the hi-jack. Now I'm twice-jealous!!).
