Alaska '08, Epilogue

What a great trip, can't wait to do it again!

75 days, about 10,000 miles.

Next time more time anywhere along the ocean in Alaska. We found the coastal areas the best. More time on the Kenai, for Valdez and the Inside Passage. We would spend less time in Fairbanks, Anchorage, and yes, Denali. Top of the World highway is something to see but next time I would skip Dawson City to take time elsewhere.

Things we wished we would have brought (for tide pooling, boat rides and fishing): stocking caps, long underwear, flannel lined jeans, Xtra Tuffs, rain pants.

Jon - Just finished reading your wonderful blog as we relived our July-August 2005 trip from Boston to AK and back in our 28' BT Cruiser. About 13,000 miles for us.. Like you, we really enjoyed our AMHS trips from Haines with 2 night layovers in Juneau, Sitka and Ketchikan, disembarking in Prince Rupert. We would do it again in a heartbeat, although the Alaska Highway was "miles and miles of miles and miles!"

Best to you and your photogenic family.
