Back around '90 a buddy of mine loaded up his Kayak, slid it into the water from his back yard in Silverdale and paddled from there up through the inside passage to Alaska. :o

Was this for the R2AK? I have a friend that attempted last time and is building a boat to do it this year.

 No, he just up and left one day. Said he found himself on that trip and really needed it, although he said at times he thought it was all over.
The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first!

Fair winds and following seas.  And more pitchers.

Quick update and pics -
Wx has been sketchy until yesterday, slowed me down a bit. Arrived KTN, picked up Rich. He got to experience St Patricks day in Ketchikan.  They take it pretty seriously here, with a 50' parade and everything.
Went and sport fished spot prawns yesterday, ended up with a fine haul.  Rich is running gear like a champ.

Halibut fishing today and tomorrow, then charging south around 2am Thurs morning just before this weather window closes.   Won't be able to post those pics until we get back to WA.

I'm betting on a barn door with that setup.

Go get em, boys.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Add a nice salmon belly to that and you're in the money.
